Having read the other reviews I felt compelled to add to them. Having stayed here since it first opened and have subsequently been back loads of times due to family living near by, I think it is a lovely setting. There is room for minor improvements but on the whole it's great. The chickens have never bothered us, they are not usually let out until mid morning, by then we would have gone off somewhere. If you want real countryside then this is it, I didn't mind hearing the cuckoo every morning at 4.00am, then the cockerel at 6.00. If you're lucky you may see the ducklings on the stream. I am hoping this location will continue to thrive.
