“We could not have chosen a more beautiful and relaxing place to spend a lovely family holiday than your gorgeous farm. The farm itself is straight out of an Enid Blyton novel, surrounded by magical trees and meadows.

We hope to see you again soon!” Sue, John and Bill, Gateshead Tyne and Wear, August 2016

“Thank you for a wonderful Summer holiday. The barn is perfect for our family of four. Henry doesn’t want to go home! We’ve loved the pigs and chickens and had a lovely first day watching the tractors get the hay in. So much to do around here – we went fruit picking, got a boat on Bewl Water, Bodiam Castle, Batemans and Bedgebury Pinetum. I’m sure we’ll be back” Caroline and Mano, London, August, 2016

“I just spent a wonderful weekend in The Hay Barn with 4 close friends. The cottages are gorgeous and the farm offers the perfect retreat from busy city life. There were little piggies just outside who were super sweet and fresh eggs from the ducks and chickens in the morning. Zoe and her family were the perfect blend of attentive but also gave us privacy to chill out and relax. Couldn’t recommend the farm high enough. I look forward to returning in the summer.” Kirsty, March 2016
