About the Owner
About Christina Leonard
Myself and my husband have been letting our two self catering holiday cottages for over 25 years. We enjoy meeting people coming to stay with us and helping them to enjoy their holiday. The cottages are within our 45 acre beef farm, on which we have numerous farm birds, chicken, ducks, peacocks and wild pheasants. Frequently I have children from the holiday cottages watching me with the poultry in the morning and helping to collect eggs!
We live in the farmhouse near the cottages and are on hand if you have any enquiries during your stay. The position of the cottages is completely separate from the farmhouse and allows for complete privacy.
We enjoy seeing guests using the swimming pool and making the most of the gardens and play areas.
Christina Leonard purchased this cottage in 1980
