"...It is easy to understand how people fall under the spell of this corner of the earth ... The barn is a true home from home, cosy, friendly and beautifully done up..." (Our first visitors)

Listen to larks and watch buzzards wheeling in the sky over an idyllic working farm while you ramble over the fields and let your children loose to get happily muddy playing in streams or building camps in ancient oak woodland. Fish for trout (or even the odd salmon) in the River Inny. Then return to the comfort of a sensitively converted barn which, whilst being superbly equipped, maintains all the atmosphere of an ancient stone farm building.
Most of our visitors do not seem to want to stir off the farm - and they are welcome to "lend a hand" and learn about lambing, haymaking, hedge-laying or whatever the seasonal work happens to be. This is a paradise for anyone who loves wild flowers and birds or who simply wants to wander round the farm and soak up the peace.

We are on hand in the old farmhouse across the yard to help in any way we can to make your stay a pleasant one.
