In 2017 we added a cottage to our portfolio of self catering accommodation properties to give our guests a wider choice of places to stay.  We already have a caravan on the farm and now we have a lovely one bedroom cottage to offer our guests.  We have completely renovated the cottage to our high standard and welcomed guests from June 2017 onwards. Our guest were all delighted with the comfort and location.  They enjoyed the "get away from it all" feel of the cottage but it is central to many of the archeological sites and there is easy access to RSPB reserves, beaches and walks.  The cottage is on our farm and the nearest neighbours are rabbits, gulls, hares, sheep and cattle!
