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:
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 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."

"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."

"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."

Have had a lovely week-end. Cottage spotlessly clean, and comfortable. Michael and Shirley fabulous owners. So great to be allowed to look round the farm, seeing the little calves, lambs and of course “Tottie” the pig. Thanks for the eggs they were delicious.

"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

"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."

"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
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.
"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."
