We were made to feel very comfortable and enjoyed exploring what the farm had to offer including the homemade cider which was delicious. The cottage itself was perfect for two people and had everything we needed, being able to bring the dog was a bonus. Would recommend a short walk to the Pheasant Inn, food was excellent! Thanks for a brilliant stay, we hope to come back again!!

Despite the weather being bitterly cold we tackled the footpath across the fields to Wells, nearly came unstuck or rather stuck due to underfoot conditions but made it to the palace grounds. We self catered but there are plenty of eateries in the area.
