Features such as a hand made four poster bed, polished floor boards, a crisp white bathroom, with a spa, and elegant furnishings create a relaxing and opulent ambience. Folly Farm is also pet friendly and a special treat is a visit with the farm Alpacas, and blueberry picking in summer. Folly Farm Retreat has an excellent website to further inspire you with delightful images of the gardens and the cottage.
