Wow! Wow! Wow! This place is amazing. The location is gorgeous and your own private field which my dog loved. The Watkins family are so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. They should be so proud and I wish them all the success in the world in their new ventures. Can't wait to come back to see them.

This place was amazing. If you are looking to be bang in the middle of lots of fields, 100xs of sheep, lovely hills to walk up, this spot is great for you. We had the best time and our hosts were just the most warm, welcoming and relaxed people youll ever meet. The hut had everything you could possible need and more.

The Watkins family could not have been more welcoming. The food goodies on arrival were delicious and such a lovely touch. The location was just what we needed, idyllic scenery and away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The area was so dog friendly, and our young Labrador loved having his very own field!
