What an amazing place... It was absolutely spotless, beautiful surrounds and friendly hostess. We loved being able to relax in front of the fire and watch the horses running around our cottage. We will definitely visit as soon as possible again!

Thank you for your great review. It was a pleasure having you stay. I loved taking your daughters out riding and teaching them how to care for the horses. I will look forward to your family returning to Stormy Hill in the future.

The very cosy, yet quite large cottage is private and overlooks the beautiful meander. The cottage is very neat and the open plan layout is ideal for larger groups. I would definitely recommend it for a group of friends in for a longer stay!

Our daughters age 12 and 10 are horse crazy. This was the most amazing experience for them. They did not want to come home and have informed us that all future holidays will be spent at Stormy Hills. 😂
