  • "A lovely stay on the farm and a great base for all the family to get together."

    The kids loved being so close to animals, and the adults loved the views over the countryside. The farm was very comfortable for the 8 of us, with great living space and lovingly decorated. There was everything we needed, although some more teaspoons would be useful! Overall excellent accommodation and we would definitely book again when looking to stay in the area.

    Thanks so much for your kind feedback. Look forward to you returning. Property Owner

  • "A somewhat remote property located on a farm, which came with the rural smells, which didn’t bother us."

    Comfortable lounge, well equipped kitchen. Nice garden area. We called the owners as one of the radiators wasn’t working, within 10 mins, the owner came and fixed it for us. Thank you for a lovely stay !

  • "We celebrated my husband 60th birthday with family, we nice time property is clean and well equipped."

    But a bit disappointed with the facilities in the garden only two benches, we expected there to be enough table and chairs and parasols for 10 people and not enough toilet paper or kitchen rolls so we had to buy our own. The location is farm land so nothing walking distance you have to drive. Also we found the manure smell very strong some days. Otherwise very nice!

    Hi, Thanks for staying with us, very sorry you felt that about garden facilities, however there are x2 large picnic tables which seat 12 people. We tried to facilitate all your requests, getting parasol etc. As described we are in a working farm, therefore you do get country smells, from time to time. We always try to provide enough house facilities (eg toilet paper / tea bags etc based on time period stayed). Property Owner

  • "Whilst we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ley Mill Farm, I feel I have to point out one or two things which need to be addressed."

    1. There was a hole in the step on one of the stairs on the first floor. Unfortunately it caused me to catch my foot and fall hurting my back. 2. The toilet seat in the main bathroom is loose and need to be secured. 3. It would be helpful if the refuse collection day was made known so that the boxes could be put kerbside for collection.

    We are sorry to hear about your accident at Leymill. We would like to reassure you, all your feedback has been addressed and all issues dealt with. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Ley Mill Farm."

    It is a perfect place to get families together who live in different parts of the country. It's not easy to find cottages with five double bedrooms but this fitted the bill perfectly. The many bathrooms really helped together with lots of space in the cottage especially in the kitchen which looks very new as do the bathrooms. The lounge was also very comfortable with plenty of seating. I loved the powerful and hot rain shower. The kitchen is very well equipped and a joy to use. We were delighted with the basket of goodies the owner had left for us on arrival. Would love to go back!

    Thanks for your kind comments, would love to see you back in the future! Jo Property Owner
