The property is really well-kept and tidy from the kitchen to toilets and bath to the bedroom. Very cozy and homey feel. Owners promptly answered the door even if we came very light into the night. Friendly hosts as well.
Our Stay was lovely, we felt right at home of the bat and Cathy and Rob were a pleasure to talk to and be around. The room we had was spacious and comfortable, in addition to that the electric blankets are awesome during winter. The animals are also extremely cute and overloving. All in all we can only recommend staying here, great people, animals and home, we‘d definitely stay here again.

How do I book?
Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.
When do I pay?
Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.
When can I share my contact details?
Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
