Treat yourselves to something special...

Handley Farm is no ordinary B&B establishment. Owners Linda and family have created three carefully designed bed and breakfast suites from original stone barns, which are separate from the farmhouse. These luxurious ground floor suites provide superbly comfortable, well-equipped accommodation, giving guests the level of comfort and personal attention expected from a first class hotel, but with a lot more freedom, independence, and privacy.

Each suite is individually designed, with a comfortable sitting area, ensuite bathroom, and bedroom area. The soft furnishings are beautifully co-ordinated, with careful attention given to the smallest detail to create guestsuites that are truly unique. Breakfast is served in the dining room of the centuries-old farmhouse, and guests are then free to spend the day as they please, either enjoying the comfort of their luxurious suites, or exploring the area.

There are two self-catering cottages: Handley Cottage, sleeping 4 people, and the Cider Barn for 6 people. Both cottages are full of character, and offer extremely comfortable and well-equipped self catering accommodation. Each cottage has its own garden with garden furniture and a barbecue.

The bed and breakfast suites and the self catering cottages are all set in the pretty south facing courtyard, and there is also a play area for children close by. There is a games barn with table tennis, pool table and darts, with its own woodburner for days when the weather is less than perfect!
