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...

"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."

"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."

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
"Have had a wonderful week in a wonderful setting and in very comfortable and tastefully decorated cottage. Shirley and Michael are exceptional hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them despite their hectic and busy lifestyle. Would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a restful break."
Grant and Ailsa, Perthshire
"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
"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."
Donna Derek and Cowan, Australia
"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
"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
"What a wonderful holiday! A huge thank you to Michael and Shirley for allowing us to be part of “farm life” – the kids thoroughly enjoyed feeding the animals and horse-riding (as did Suzie). The play park, fishing and walks were also a big hit, we will definitely be back. Charlie loved the quads and Rosie the horse riding the feeding the animals."
