The scenery surrounding Horsley Head Holidays was stunning. The house was clean, spacious, comfortable and well stocked with household essentials. We loved the wood burner and the Rayburn in the kitchen.

If you are searching for tranquillity, stunning views and a perfect holiday home then look no further. This is an extremely well maintained and spacious farmhouse easily accommodating our family of 10. The huge kitchen is a super gathering place equipped to a very high standard, as are the rest of the rooms which are all light and airy, and spotlessly clean throughout. Having all bedrooms en suite was a luxury and all were supplied with super soft towels. There is ample seating in the cosy lounge with a gorgeous log burner - perfect to relax in after a day of walking. The enclosed front garden was just the place for our 2yr old grandson to play in, there was plenty of seating and fabulous views over the fields full of sheep with their lambs. The courtesy shown by our friendly owners was second to none. We would definitely recommend the farmhouse to others and are already counting down to our next visit!

Wonderful secluded weekend retreat.
Some friends and myself stayed at this cottage mid February for a birthday. The place was perfect with an amazing kitchen and living room for cooking and entertaining. There was more than enough space for us all to sit down to dinner, and the log fire in the front room was perfect for a cold winters evening. The bedrooms are clean and comfortable with power showers in all the en suites; great to come back to after a long walk in the beautiful countryside just on the doorstep. The owners are lovely people, greeting us on arrival and very easy to get in touch with prior to and throughout the stay. They even had a birthday cake waiting on the kitchen table when we walked through the door! I couldn't recommend this place more, and we would love to stay again, Thanks :-)
