Beautifull cottage in a lovely part of England!

5 of 5
Enjoyed a lovely week at Brow Farm. The holiday cottage is to a very high standard and the homemade cake and fresh eggs were an added bonus on arrival! Cath and Dave are very helpful and make you feel so welcome. Nothing is too much bother for them. I would highly recommend a stay at this fantastic place.
