    “It's very difficult to give negative feedback for me and this review will be mixed because there are some strong positives however there are some things that we were unhappy with.”

    It's also very difficult to say these things to the owners while staying at the property some people find that easy we find it awkward. We travelled with two pups one with an injured leg so this meant we were in the bungalow more than out of it. So we arrived at 8:00 pm after a long day at work. Luckily it was still light as there is a 1 1/2 mile single lane leading up to the property and this would have been difficult stressful in the dark. Arrived at the bungalow and it was lovely and warm ...

    It's also very difficult to say these things to the owners while staying at the property some people find that easy we find it awkward. We travelled with two pups one with an injured leg so this meant we were in the bungalow more than out of it. So we arrived at 8:00 pm after a long day at work. Luckily it was still light as there is a 1 1/2 mile single lane leading up to the property and this would have been difficult stressful in the dark. Arrived at the bungalow and it was lovely and warm inside great heating system with no ridiculous holiday timings set. That was a huge bonus! It is spacious but very dated with a musky odour in the living room. It could do with being emptied carpets up some wooden flooring down and a thorough deep clean. I understand it is at the lower end of the price bracket but it's not cheap. During our week, we lived in the entrance to the bungalow which is advertised as a snug which in the picture on Sykes site shows the dining table. This now houses a very dated two seater sofa which, as at home we protected and a wooden chair. There is a dining room joining the kitchen. Positives: Heating as mentioned above was fantastic as was the hot water A nice bottle of wine to enjoy thank you Wi-Fi was strong and reliable. Phone signal worked if you used Wi-Fi calling we are on 3 network Bedroom we had the last bedroom which was spacious with clean bedding and comfortable mattress. Lots of wardrobe space with hangers and a dressing table with a socket underneath. Plenty of room outside the bedroom for the dogs crate at night Main bathroom was spacious with a powerful shower plenty of hot water and loads of towels The En-suite was very very dated which is why we chose the larger back bedroom main bathroom Kitchen - spacious and very well accessorised. We were able to cook and everything we needed was there. Dishwasher and tablets provided 4 slice toaster and great oven hob Tiled floor snug kitchen and dining room great for the dogs Location complete darkness, great starry nights and on some evenings you could hear the owls Enclosed garden great for the dogs although I was concerned that they'd go around the back and fall into the lean to Better ifs On arrival there were lots of dead flies on the windowsills. The kitchen had a few but the living room had lots. Straight away this told me that the bungalow had not been cleaned thoroughly Also when leaving, we went through the cupboards to pack our stuff away and in the bread bin which we hadn't used was old mouldy bread Wasps in fairness, the owners may not know this is a problem but we have never seen as many wasps before! We could not open the windows as immediately, we'd have a room full of wasps this was a problem in the kitchen and the snug. When sitting outside, we did try the trick of popping something sweet down away from where we were sitting and it did work, but the amount of wasps that swarmed to the treat was not normal. We are regular campers and the amount of wasps was definitely excessive. However for me, one of the things that really annoyed me was the dogs barking in the steel shed building right across from the bungalow. I don't know whether they are kept there at night or whether they wander down from the main farmhouse at night but their barking was annoying. At home, we have to be up at 5 am so when you are woken at 5:50 am with barking that continues for a good thirty minutes it's not good. It was the same at night. On at least 3 nights when we were in bed, the dogs began barking. It was nothing to do with it being working farm either as on all the occasions, there was nobody around. Finally, the visitor book says a lot. Lots of lovely comments, but then towards the end people are writing in the pencil or the red felt pen that has been left. Now I understand that it must be irritating to keep replacing pens, however, by leaving a pencil and a felt pen says that you're not too bothered about what is being written. I do understand that this is a working farm and I could see that the owners were extremely busy. It may be worth them paying someone to clean it for them after Friday's guests have departed. The bungalow has the potential to be so much better if a little bit of money is spent on it.
