Self-catering accommodation on the farm is available at Owl Cottage (so called because you can hear the nesting Spotted Eagle Owls and the Barn owls in close proximity in the evening) and at Lavender Cottage (so called because it overlooks the fragrant lavender terraces).

We enjoyed a lovely stay at Muddy Paws. Lovely homely feeling about the place and how spoilt we were with a bottle of farm fresh milk left in the fridge for us compliments of Daisy the cow. Would certainly revisit if we were in the area again.
