About Vicky Smith

Several years ago we bought Coursley Farm and over a period of time the farmhouse and barns have been lovingly restored to create an atmosphere of a timeless haven. Having travelled the world extensively and been in the area as well as the hospitality industry, we feel that we are well equipped to cater for your needs, providing accommodation of a luxury standard with all the modern necessities of everyday living.

There are two cottages side by side enabling possibilities for larger families or groups.
