Cottage's own web site
Get off the beaten track and glimpse Hicks Farm nestled in peaceful seclusion surrounded by idyllic unspoilt countryside.

On the farm Rose Cottage and Orchard House provide spacious detached accommodation with every home comfort. Both properties boast all modern conveniences whilst retaining their period character, exposed beams and even an eighteenth century bread oven.

Large secure gardens provide a safe haven for both children and dogs.
During your stay you can explore our 154 acre livestock farm. At different times of the year you can help feed the lambs, calves and pigs. Our farmyard animals are always pleased to get extra attention!

So, what ever you choose to do, relax in our indoor swimming pool, hone your snooker skills in the games room, explore the farm, badger watch at dusk, meet the farmyard animals or simply curl up by the fire with a good book, we feel sure that everything at Hicks Farm will match, if not exceed, your expectations of the ideal country retreat for all the family whatever the weather!

  • Pool Barn leisure facilities. Games room and indoor swimming pool open all year.
  • Working farm in unspoilt countryside.
