  • "We have just returned having spent a long weekend in the property, we were a family of five adults and two children."

    The property was lovely, we all had such a relaxing time, the dwelling is huge and the surrounding gardens were a joy. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxed place to stay. Thank you to the owners as you have a gem here.

  • "A lovely peaceful well equipped property."

    Adults were comfortable and there was room for the kids to play. We were 8 adults, 4 children under 6 and one small dog; we all agreed it was a really good place for us.

  • "We had a brilliant week at Carneadon Farmhouse and it was both a lovely and easy place to stay - all the children loved how much space there was, including playing footy and cricket in the garden (when the weather permitted!"

    ). We would certainly recommend the property for a big group of people - there were 13 of us (6 adults and 7 children) and it was comfortably big enough.

  • "Went as a family group of 11 (2 families) with a mix of ages from 50’s to tweens and everything in between."

    The house is amazing with all the space and facilities you could need for a large group, it was immaculately cleaned on our arrival and the lovely gesture of fresh flowers and biscuits was such a nice and welcoming touch. We arranged a supermarket delivery for our arrival which came with no problems and had pizzas delivered too from domino’s (we were worried that we may be too secluded). Own mistake was not reading quite carefully enough as it does state towels provided and these were clean, fresh and fluffy hotel quality with enough for everyone who was staying if needed (could have saved some packing space). The house was always warm and cosy even without lighting the gorgeous log burner but we did once or twice just for the full farmhouse ambiance (its amazing and so relaxing) the kitchen was superbly equipped apart from some scissors which we brought (we left them in the drawer for the next guests). From a teen and tween perspective i was slightly worried about wifi, as screens are obviously life, but not only was the wifi serviceable it far outstripped our service back home (not once did i hear a complaint about it being slow or no signal) Overall i would without hesitation return, and am already looking for dates the whole family can do again.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, and indeed for your kind words. Thank you in turn for leaving the house in such good order. A Property Owner
