Just spent a fabulous long weekend at Farriers Cottage. Beautiful location within easy reach of beaches and attractions but so peaceful and tranquil. The cottage is very well equipped, spacious and spotlessly clean. The beds were very comfortable and hard to leave! We enjoyed lazy breakfasts in the garden taking in the stunning views and the sound of birdsong . Would highly recommend and we are looking forward to returning as soon as we can!

Past Customer,

This lovely cottage has been tastefully renovated and equipped to a very high standard, however one bedroom was much larger than the other (which had no wardrobe/cupboard/drawers ) but fine for two couples willing to share. It was lovely cooking and socialising in the large kitchen /dining room each evening. Good pubs within easy distance and of course... craster crabs! Beautiful cows came to look over the wall at us every evening, together with their calf ... idyllic rural setting. close to spectacular beaches We could highly recommend it and hope to visit again.

Mrs H,

We had a lovely family holiday at Farriers cottage. The house is very child friendly. The standard of cleanliness was excellent. Very well equipped and warm. The garden was excellent for our 2 year old grandson enclosed and safe. We will hopefully return soon.

Mrs H,
