The Potting Shed is in a lovely courtyard along with The Dairy. The main farmhouse is across the courtyard so you are private and but we are here should you require anything.

The Potting Shed is a spacious luxury barn conversion, originally part of the pig sty to the farmhouse. We have enjoyed finding antique and vintage furniture from local auction houses to give a homely feel. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, with dishwasher, induction hob and fan oven. Wood burning stove ideal for cosy nights in, there is also Smart TV with Bluetooth soundbar. Having rented many holiday lets over the years I know what is needed to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. We can provide additional fridge and freezer space for longer stays, please ask. There is also a travel cot available.
