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:
A last minute short break at Greycraig Cottage, but our second visit to the cottage, which is furnished to a high standard with everything you could wish for and in a perfect position overlooking the conservation area. Once again both Michael and Shirley were extremely accommodating in allowing our two children to help feed and look after the animals on the farm, which they both thoroughly enjoyed! Hope to return again in the summer, although I have to say lighting the woodburner each evening on this visit was a real treat!
"hank you so much Shirley and Michael. Beckhead was everything we hoped it would be and more! The stunning location, beautiful scenery and friendly animals provided many wonderful memories. Beckhead Cottage is a haven for timeout from the “hustle and bustle” Thank you x."

"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
"Your cottage was a perfect location for a memorable reunion of friends. The house is cozy and well laid out – even with 5 kids running around we felt we had plenty of space. We all enjoyed the farm aspects and the kids loved feeding the calves. Thanks for everything!"
Laura George Margot Emmanuel, Brussels
"Our 4th visit to Dairy Cottage and it just seems to get better and better. Love it so much. Michael and Shirley are the best hosts we have ever met. Little ones had a lovely holiday with is completely down the Michael and Shirley. Once again we are all a little sad to be going home. Will definitely be back."

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.
"We had a wonderful week here at the farm, both Michael and Shirley have made us very welcome. Meeting and feeding the animals has been an absolute joy. The cottage is the perfect base for exploring the area. Would recommend the hike up Criffle if your feeling energetic! Full marks all round."
Mark and Tracey, Lincolnshire
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...

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

"We spent a wonderful relaxing week here at Dairy Cottage. We felt we have really got away from it all. Thanks to Michael and Shirley for their patience whilst their new “farm hands” learnt the ropes. Dylan and Sam have voted this their best holiday ever. Thank you from all of us."
