We have two different places you can book for staying on the farm.
Self Catering - Old Apple Store
We offer a 1 bed self catering cottage on the farm, the Old Apple Store. The cottage is very well maintained, has a private garden, well equipped kitchen and is all on one level thus very easy to access.
B & B - Owl's Barn
We are able to provide a private section of the farmhouse for you to enjoy. You have your own entrance, twin bedroom, bathroom with shower and a private sitting room too. There is no kitchen, but a table top oven and hob, a kettle, toaster and a fridge freezer are provided so we hope you are set up enough to make your own breakfast or reheat an evening meal.
Owl's Barn is predominantly available to those on a Coldcroft Shire horse experience or training.
