Perfect family holiday!

5 of 5
Our cottage BeesKnees was perfect for our needs as a small, young family. So much had been thought of to make our stay really easy. We were made to feel so welcome around the farm. Our little boy got so much out of seeing the sheep and horses and sheep dogs. Being able to go for walks on the many paths around the farm was great too. We loved the farm pack menus, we had all of them - the BBQ pack, the breakfast pack and the picnic. All were so delicious, great value and because we only had to chuck things on the gas BBQ outside it didn't feel like we had to cook at all! Definitely recommend doing that. Everything about the cottage was comfortable and clean and very homely. And good wifi too! We loved the location and being on a farm. We would love to come back in the future.
