Fun on the Farm!
We are so happy we stayed here! We took several trips to nearby places and discovered things we wouldn’t have had we stayed in the city. Gwyneth is a gracious hostess, and we loved the fresh bread and eggs! And the cows provided a little bit of entertainment for us too.

Peaceful, working farm cottage house!
The Brown Hen was a delight to stay in. From the decor, comfy beds to relaxing, serene farmland this stay was just perfect. Our host, Gwyneth was charming, personable and such a lovely lady. We will be back! You won’t be disappointed if you’re looking to stay a little off the beaten path out of the hustle and bustle.
