“perfect relaxation destination!”
Reviewed 3 January 2015 for a stay in August 2014

Friends and I came here for a hen do and it was absolutely marvellous. All three cottages are immaculately clean with lovely decor and have all the provisions necessary. The surroundings are perfect and peaceful, plenty of room to 'hangout' outside and indoors depending on weather. Property is in the middle of nowhere which is blissfull but still a short drive from the town. Owners were wonderful and so accommodating.... everyone of us said we would go again. 10/10

“Ideal”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The venue was perfect for our 4 families. We felt we could all get together easily and also felt free to do our own thing. The owners and farm helpers were so friendly. They even got our grandchildren out horse poo picking which they loved. Amazing! Our grandchildren felt free and would go to the stables and have a chat to a horse over the gate. All in all ideal for a family get together.

“Beautiful and relaxing retreat”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We loved everything about this place, from the lovely horses that we so close by to the well appointed kitchens that allowed us to cook up a storm.

Comfortable and capable of handling our big group easily, we thoroughly enjoyed walks to the stunning reservoir and surrounding hills.

Wonderful attentive staff on nearby made it easy for us to find everything.

Would definitely go again !

“Great property, lovely surroundings”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Finding a place for a large group of friends is always tricky, but the Happy Horse came up trumps.

As per the info, it is split between three properties that all lie within one building. They are accessed by separate front doors which, although not ideal for some people perhaps, really suited our group. It means you can all socialise in the main house, but have a little bit of privacy and time to relax if you need it.

The place is easy to find if you follow the instructions, and the owners are incredibly welcoming and friendly. Their dogs were a highlight for us, as Hassle and Patrick are wonderfully friendly and not intrusive at all.

The rooms are all done up to a high standard, with comfortable beds and great showers. The three kitchens are all well stocked and great for cooking in, plus there's a BBQ if the weather allows.

Some people may not like that the majority of rooms are twins/bunks, but we didnt mind. It meant we could get a good number of people staying, and there's no lasting damage to a marriage if you take twin beds for a couple of nights.

There are plenty of routes for walks nearby, and the games room in the barn was a great place to disappear to for a bit of table tennis.

Would highly recommend it to others.
