Our guests love the Williamwood Farm experience and our Four Star Country Cottages. Many have been kind enough to shared their views. Below are some of the more recent testimonials received from our former guests:
"We loved everything about the cottage, our walks around the farm, the beauty around us but most of all: it was a joy to see animals and birds so well loved and cared for. Thank you Michael and Shirley you have been exceptional hosts."
Margot Lou and Lesley, Australia
"Great four day break, lovely cottage and lovely surroundings . Really great hosts and really great eggs. Lovely playing in the field with the dogs. Bed really comfy. The shower was really “cool”, never seen a shower head so big. So peaceful round here, enjoyed it lots."
Allan Suzie Peter and Callum, Halifax
"We’ve had a lovely week, Greycraig Cottage makes you feel like you are totally alone in the beautiful Scottish countryside and with a fab fire to cuddle in front of we can’t wait to come back. Thank you."
Jess and Andy, Newcastle upon Tyne
"Stunning cottage. Access from the motorway and A 75 mean it’s a fantastic location. Idyllically quiet – the complete darkness at night was something we hadn’t experienced for a long time. Access to the animals was wonderful. We never had to walk far before someone (horse, donkey, goat dog) came to greet us. All amazingly well behaved – even around a 2 year old. Thank you so much we all loved it."
Miller Family, Lancashire
"Lovely relaxing break over Valentines Week-end. Thank you for the flowers and wine!, we especially loved the free range eggs provided! The cottage is beautiful and we made very good use of the log fire. We will be back."
Richard and Sophie, Newcastle
"We just had a long weekend at the farm and absolutely LOVED it!!! Our cottage was amazing and felt like a home away from home. The farm is absolutely gorgeous but what really made the weekend were the owners (and the fact it was calving season ). Shirley and Michael were so very welcoming and sweet. My daughter got to feed a highland calf and she loved it. They were so open and welcoming that we now feel would couldn’t possibly stay anywhere else. The children’s play area was great and super safe and the petting zoo was just so much fun. We loved Tottie the pig. I would highly highly recommend the Farm to anyone!!!!! We look forward to seeing Shirley at the highland show with her ponies and more so look forward to going back."

Another fabulous time with Shirley, Michael and all the animals. Thank you!! We loved feeding all the animals, especially the calves. T loved herding sheep and especially her ride on Mouse. We have been for 3 years now and still love it. Great cottage, we love helping out and Michael and Shirley (and the dogs!) are great hosts. Thank you again
"Thank you for a lovely holiday. The cottage was like a home from home . We saw lots of birds we don’t get to see at home especially the woodpecker who brought much entertainment. Adam and Mita enjoyed feeding the lambs. Hope to see you again."
Duncan Mita and Adam, Lincolnshire
"Thank you Shirley and Michael for a wonderful week at Beckhead Cottage. We couldn’t of asked for a more peaceful place to stay. It was an Incredible cottage, comfortable, spotless, well equipped and a great garden for our girl to play in. The walks around the farm were our favourite part of the week. We will definitely be back."
Keryn B., Sheffield
Absolutely brilliant.. I don't know what else I can say, the cottage was spotless, lovely and bright with a fantastic garden
. Lovely woodland walk at the bottom of it too.. our daughter was looking forward to meeting the horses, and they didn't disappoint, Shirley couldn't have been more accommodating, showing her how to ride properly. We spent 3 nights feeding the farm animals with Michael and Shirley, asking loads of questions and thoroughly enjoying the hands on experience, they couldn't have been better hosts. Best advice I can give is get involved, it's so much fun. We WILL be back...

"Dairy Cottage was one of the best “finds” we have had having rented many cottages in different countries. Michael and Shirley were extremely friendly always ready to pass the time of day and to explain about the farm. We have had the please of feeding “Flossy” the calf and the lambs every day."
Michael and Deborah, Essex
"Absolutely beautiful cottage – peaceful, secluded, immaculate and a pleasure to have stayed here!. The best cottage holiday we have ever had by far!!! Will definitely come again."

"We have had a brilliant stay. Cottage is beautiful , Shirley and Michael have been very helpful in giving us info on places to go as well as making us very welcome on the farm.
