Alistair is a wonderful host and the Cookhouse is an incredibly special place to stay! Our family of 6 had loads of space and really, really enjoyted the house. The house has an enormous big kitchen and dining area which is fully equiped with everything you can think of. The beds are really lovely and comfy and theres a huge amount to choose from. It was lovely being right there on the farm with the sheep outside the windows and a stunningv view out to the ocean. Such an awesome house and we will most certainly be back again! Thanks so much for sharing your home with us Alistair!
