“Group of 10 friends in their 30s for stargazing, wild walks and evenings around the fireplace. Fantastic group home. Hosts knew it was for a birthday and provided a surprise birthday cake which was great because my partner forgot to bring one. Well equipped kitchen, was able to comfortably cook a roast with plenty of equipment. Dishwasher makes clear up easy. Generous hamper with drinks and jams and snacks was a lovely touch. Each room w/own bathroom – luxury. Building is well insulated, so do not hear people downstairs from the bedrooms. Underfloor heating kept house warm but not a stuffy. Ample firewood. The outside w/views 360 made for a great entertaining space. There are chickens free roam, you need to dodge the odd bit of chicken Poo to not walk back in the house, but this is a minor inconvenience to how much joy seeing them brings. House is insulated, well enough that you barely hear the rooster who sleeps in late anyway. Would definitely rebook. TY to the hosts.”
