‘Betty’s Bothy’ is a small self-contained barn conversion, adjacent to HART Farm which offers therapeutic visits for children coping with life challenges. It will suit animal lovers (with or without their own well-behaved dog) as the animals can be seen from large windows and you may well wake to the sounds of a cockerel, the eeyore of mini donkeys or the bleating of pygmy goats. All the proceeds for this listing go towards the upkeep of the Hart Farm Animals.
The cosy accommodation comprises a well-designed open plan room with TV and DVD, kitchenette comprising 2 rings, microwave and fridge and spacious walk-in wet room with shower, all with under-floor heating. Breakfast basket provided for the first morning. The very comfortable queen-sized double bed (can be two singles, close together) pulls down from the wall into the living area. Large windows look out onto the hills and the animal sanctuary. Parking for small or medium cars outside the Bothy, for larger vehicles on the road in village
