“What a lovely Family! We felt so well looked after and nothing was too much trouble for Trish, Steve and their two fantastic boys. They gave us so much of their private time (and lots of cups of tea) that we felt almost like a family. Location - bliss, breakfasts - delicious, portions - generous, beds - super comfy, home made coffee cake - YUM! Not to mention that surprise dinner party! Will never forget this one! ;-) So glad we found a place with real human beings. Thank You!”
LOOKING FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT? THIS COULD BE IT, BUT IT'S NOT FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED. YOU NEED TO BE HARDY, CONFIDENT IN YOUR ABILITY TO LOOK AFTER YOURSELF WHEN THE TRAPPINGS OF MODERN LIFE ARE NOT SO ACCESSIBLE! BEFORE BOOKING, PLEASE READ ALL THE INFORMATON, ESPECIALLY REGARDING USING THE WOOD-BURNER - THE ONLY HEATING AVAILABLE. THERE could BE A SMELL OF SMOKE! KNOW YOUR LIMITATIONS AND THINK IF THIS IS REALLY FOR YOU. OUTDOOR TYPES USED TO CAMPING OR BOTHIES WILL HAVE NO TROUBLE!
“I loved staying in the old signal box. It’s quirky and unusual. I like this kind of thing, if you’re used to Egyptian cotton sheets and luxuries then this place isn’t for you. If you like silent nights and rustic living it’s the place to be. The stove was ace when it was fired up and made the place nice n cosy on a chilly night. The WiFi is excellent so I could watch a bit of stuff on iPlayer etc. There’s lots of info and a great picture album showing how the whole signal box was relocated to its present site. Dave and Mary are a lovely couple and we’re on hand to help me with anything I needed. There’s some basic cooking facilities inc a microwave which was useful for me taking some food with me. I’d definitely stay again.”
