The lounge/diner, which occupies one half of the circular building, has window seats running all around the edge, allowing guests to enjoy views across the farm and the surrounding countryside, and there is also a small dining table, as well as comfortable sofa seating, and a Smart TV, DVD, and hi-fi.

Property and location were perfect for us. Television is not necessary in this lovely property as the views are amazing. Good location for exploring the area. Lovely to see the comings and goings of the working farm. Not obtrusive in any way, just lovely to see. Bed comfy, appreciated the dark sky. Well equipped kitchen.
