Eddie and Izzie sharing a kiss
Stayed at Huntstile last week with my brother and our 2 dogs. We recently purchased a tent and wanted to test camp it to see how we and the dogs liked it. Huntstile seemed like the ideal location for our first trip out ... and we couldn't of been more right!!!
Staff very helpful and friendly on booking and during our short stay. Although they only have 5 pitches for tents we were allowed to pitch where we pleased - OK since pitches aren't marked out this may be an issue to some people who find their neighbours have stuck their tent practically on top of them and blocked their view of the countryside.
There was only one other unit on site when we stayed so plenty of room for us all to enjoy.

The views from the site over the countryside are lovely.

Toilet and showers although quite small were clean and plenty of loo roll, hand wash etc provided.

Some of the pigs come to say hello!
The farms 3 dogs Izzie, Skorry and Stella are adorable, Izzie is lovely, very friendly and will follow you around (although doesnt get in the way or bother you) she even sat in front of our tent when we popped off site for a meal as though she was keeping watch over it. Our 2 greyhounds loved her and Izzie even gave one of them a kiss goodbye when we left the next morning. awww.

The farm also has chickens and roosters, pigs, goats, cows, ducks and geese, they were even a few doves and guinea fowl wandering around. They operate a 'no area is off limit' policy so you are free to explore and some young guests from the b&b were helping out with feeding the chickens and bottle feeding the goat babies.

We choose to stay for the breakfast the next morning - which consisted of cereals, organic tea and coffee, organic apple juice and orange juice etc followed by the full english (the usual bacon, sausage, egg, mushrooms and tomato). - They did a vegetarian version for me too with vegi pancakes in a sweet chilli sauce. My brother said its 'the best bacon I ever tasted' which considering 'its alright' is his usual reply it must of been good.
Portion sizes weren't huge but big enough especially if you have the cereals and juice to start with.

We would definitely visit Huntstile again as it was lovely there, Would highly recommend a visit. Just dont expect a lie in as the roosters began their day at 0430 and were determined to make sure we all got up with them too - Not that this was a huge problem or a surprise; it is a working farm after all you got to expect animals and animals aren't going to be quiet so you can sleep in.
