    “Wow! We have just returned from The Old Byre after staying there for a week for our honeymoon - Carol, our host, and also her sister were so friendly and went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed to make our stay extra special.”

    They were even kind enough to leave us with some delicious scones and local clotted cream with jam, and also some milk in the fridge, which was a lovely gesture and very much appreciated! This place is perfect if you are looking for a quiet, secluded location to relax in. We also really enjoyed learning about their rare breed sheep and met their registered ram 'Yorkie Baa'. We would not hesitate to come back for another visit, and we will surely be recommending this place to all our family and ...
