About the neighbourhood
Abbey Farm Holiday Homes were originally the eighteenth century homestead of a strong tenant farmer. The original farmhouse, stables and barns have been beautifully renovated and furnished to provide a complex of four exclusive holiday cottages, offering comfortable, relaxing, four star accommodation.
