We stayed in the farm's self catering cottage which was spotlessly clean and really comfortable. The cottage has fantastic views of the surrounding countryside.

This is genuine farm life. Lovely working family, very helpful hostess. We visited during the harvest season when it’s go-go all day long. The trauma of the morning was the missing duck. The house is on country roads. If you enter the postcode (DD8 2JU) in your GPS, you’ll get there. Excellent breakfast – with superb Eggs Benedict. They offer...
