The Huntsman

This suite of rooms has emerged from the shell of the former stables and John remembers the family’s horses being tethered here when he was a lad.

It is perfect for a more self-contained stay on the farm. The beautiful vaulted sitting room features a wood-burner for those crisp autumn, winter and spring nights. There is a baronial double bed, a smart bathroom and a fully fitted kitchen.

The front door gives onto the charming little courtyard whilst another double doorway leads you to the gardens and to the river, the most idyllic place to have a picnic or a barbecue in those long summer evenings.

We stayed at Carrick’s on Christmas Eve and Christmas day as we were visiting family in the area. We had no idea it was going to be so luxurious. We stayed in the newly converted barn which is a huge studio apartment with kitchen, wood burning stove, huge bed, luxury bathroom and loads of privacy. There are loads of little touches which make this a 5 star place to stay. Cowshed toiletries, wood for the stove, amazing breakfast, and Jean who is so helpful and friendly. She even provided a beautifully decorated Christmas tree which made it feel really Christmassy. This is within walking distance of Darby’s pub, and we walked to my parent’s house at the other end of the village and back without any problems. We will be back to try out some of the other rooms.
