Reviews:
Fantastic week at Coppins Farm
by The Wattersons
on August 14, 2017
We have just returned from a wonderful week at Coppins Farm. We stayed in the beautifully converted Victorian railway carriage which was really peaceful.
The children loved staying in a carriage and enjoyed their bunk bed room with sliding door!
The carriage is comfortable and roomy with original luggage racks for storage. The bathroom is fabulous too.
John has lots of extras in the carriage which make for a perfect holiday, plenty of local information, walks, wildlife, binoculars, hot water bottles, fire wood - you name it and he's already thought of it!
Each accommodation has plenty of space around it for sitting out, playing and dining so you really feel like you have the place to yourselves.
We saw the badger every night, which hoovered up the peanuts that John left for us.
The village is friendly too, and the local pub at Lamarsh put up a sign (Community pub) whilst we were there so it looks like it is opening again soon.
A peaceful back to nature week away, we will certainly be back :)
