In 2013 they converted an old farm building into six guest suites and have run a very successful bed and breakfast business from the farm since August 2014.

In 2019 they gained planning permission for 19 holiday lodges.

Now the business is looking to expand further.

In a supporting statement, submitted with the planning application, it said: “The investment to date in their bed and breakfast business and holiday lodge park has been in the region of £1.4m.

“Demand for the holiday lodges has been extremely high and the family now see an opportunity to invest further in the park and expand the business to meet the demand from customers.”If approved, the lodges would be sited on unused farmland.

Councillors will consider the application in due course.
