Hicks Farm,


Get off the beaten track and discover Hicks Farm surrounded by unspoilt countryside.

We have two homely properties on Hicks Farm – Orchard House and Rose Cottage – which share the onsite leisure facilities of a large indoor swimming pool and games room.
Being able to sleep 21 people we are the ideal place for get-togethers and celebrations - Stag and Hen Parties welcome too!

Orchard House is a delightful five bedroom barn conversion. Originally a cow byre it has been carefully designed to provide spacious character accommodation with every modern convenience. The house sleeps 14 (plus babies in cots) in five bedrooms. The ground floor, including the downstairs bedroom suite, has fitted hearing loops for the hearing aid user and is wheelchair user friendly. The three master bedrooms all with ensuite bathrooms have their own sitting areas complete with TV’s and tea/coffee making facilities – one bedroom even has an ensuite cot room too!

Rose Cottage sleeps 7 (plus babies in cots). Originally a small early eighteenth century stone dwelling, it has been extended twice to achieve a sizeable three bedroom property. Despite these changes the cottage still boasts some unique original features including exposed beams and a complete bread oven!

The Pool Barn leisure facilities are available all year round. The large warm swimming pool is 11 metres by 5 metres so plenty of room for all the family and long enough for the energetic to swim lengths. The upstairs games room has a pool table, table football and rowing machine, with a home corner for younger visitors. The ground floor of this building is wheelchair user friendly. Outside the building is a play area with climbing frame, slide and sandpit.

During your stay you can enjoy the freedom of the farm. Depending on the time of year you visit there could be lambs to bottle feed, calves to bucket feed or even pigs to scratch, there’s always something to see on a working farm!

So whatever you choose to do, help feed the farmyard animals, explore the farm, badger watch at dusk, hone your snooker skills in the games room, unwind in the swimming pool or simply enjoy a good book by the fire, we feel sure you will enjoy a truly relaxing holiday or have a great party here at Hicks Farm.

The ground floor of Orchard House has been designed and furnished with the wheelchair user in mind, it has a ground floor bedroom suite. The entrances are suitably ramped to the house and the Pool Barn. The wet room is located in the Pool Barn. Unfortunately the games room is up a flight of stairs so not accessible to the wheel chair user. The farm yard and all access roads are tarmac making a smooth path for wheel chairs and push chairs too! Rose Cottage is an old cottage and has no ground floor bedroom.
