“a little Gem in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed 2 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This was our second time at banks farm we stayed in the crofters cottage this time, we were celebrating my 40th birthday. The cottage is very cosy with everything you need for a perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life. The hot tub was fantastic clean and very private .Eddie and Louise provide a warm welcome to this fantastic accommodation we are looking forward to returning

I would recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for a romantic quiet break in rustic accommodation

“Excellent Little Cottage”
Reviewed 21 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed from 16-18th October and I can honestly say it was one of the best weekends my wife and I have had in a long time. We wanted a weekend of peace and quiet and that's exactly what we got. The cottage has everything you would need and now has a flushing toilet!!! I can't recommend this cottage enough if you just want to escape the rat race and relax. Hats off to Eddie and his partner for creating a wonderful little escape. See you next year skiddy!!!!!!!

“A little gem!”
Reviewed 19 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed here the beginning of May, when we arrived the wood burner was burning away and the hot tub was ready. A beautiful setting and cosy little cottage. Weather wasn't too good but didn't stop us relaxing in the hot tub. Eddie and Louise were brilliant, introducing us to all the animals and the week old lambs at feeding time. I couldn't recommend this place enough, me and my partner will definitely be returning again but without the child next time lol A+ AMAZING!
