  • "We arrived to a warm welcome, cottage was as it was on photos, and was clean , good supply of towels, microwave worked but was a bit rusty inside."

    We enjoyed the hot tub and watching sheep on hillside. I slept well in double bed, but it made my husbands back ache. The farm shop had gone, but short ride to aldi and co-op. Staff in bar welcoming, we had a very enjoyable stay and would certainly go back.

  • "No were in the listing does it mention that the out side space for End cottage is over look by another property that is rented out to a maximum of 14 people which when using the space felt a little uncomfortable at times."

    The last two nights we were unable to use the hottub due to smell coming from it that smelt similar to stagnant water. Also we were asked by the property ownes to strip all Beding which was not an issue but when striping the the covers off the double bed in the on-suit bedroom I found stains across the duvet and the property still smelt off dog from the pervious people that had rented the property.

  • "Our second time staying in End Cottage and we had a great holiday again."

    The cottage was clean upon arrival and equipped with all the basics. We did have a couple of problems during our stay; once with the water and once with the hot tub but both were dealt with immediately and rectified. We did find that the cottage lacked a couple of things: a outdoor light on the patio area, some kind of mat by the patio door as the floor was extremely slippery as we got out of the hot tub and the mattress on the double bed needs replacing as the springs could be felt through it. We would stay again but hope that the above have been sorted out.

  • "Don't stay here."

    Overpriced, dirty, lots of little things broken or could have been easily remedied for a better stay like old dirty cutlery, chipped crockery, the upstairs bathroom doesn't have a shower over the bath as described so 4 people will be sharing the one tiny ensuite shower. Double bed is so uncomfortable we left a day early because we couldn't sleep. Reception busy while we were there and we didn't want to spend our short break complaining about things like a bad bed and shower not being there that they couldn't change. Sykes refusing to give any kind of money back because we didn't take photos (not sure what a photo of an uncomfortable bed would have done?) Disappointed all round really. Setting is lovely, but spend your money elsewhere and with a different agent.

    Thank you for your feedback that has been passed to the owner. They have confirmed that the reception and restaurant are both open everyday, and if you had raised the issues to them, they would have been able to assist you. Property Owner

    It was an amazing cozy cottage. I would definitely come back and stay again and have been recommending the place to family and friends.

  • "Overall we had a good stay."

    However some of the items in the cottage weren’t as clean/useable as we thought. We couldn’t use the kettle as inside was dirty so I refused, the bath was cracked and had a chunk missing, and there was no washing up liquid to do the dishes.

  • "I will start by saying that we enjoyed our break."

    But the cottage was not up to standard. The high dusting had not been done for quite time. The cottage has suffered from a lack of inspections for maintenance issues, ie Toilet push button missing, holes in the wall because no door stop been fitted, a huge chip in the bath enamel also no plug chain, the twin room was desperate for a coat of paint, the main bedroom window has a broken gas seal, the floor is broken, the bathroom has a shower curtain held up with cable ties, plug chain missing, the silicone around the shower tray was show black in places, the whole floor creaked to an alarming degree, on the outside a cable was not clipped to the wall, the gutter was damaged, the courtyard has dipped in the middle and grouting was missing. I can not understand why these simple issues has not been picked up and addressed during the long lock down period. All these issues although annoying, they did not stop us enjoying a wonderful location.

  • "Had a fantastic week."

    The cottage was spotless and well equipped. The on-site staff were friendly and helpful and Sunday lunch at the bistro was delicious. We loved the hot tub and spent several hours every time in there chilling out. Beautiful views. Only small gripes we had were that we needed a broom (to sweep up the conifer needles we carried in from the patio), the water went off a couple of times (but was back on within minutes) and the hot tap on the bath stopped working half way through the week. Will definitely book again.

    Facilities were fab and the staff at Abbey Farm were incredible. Extremely friendly, knowledgeable regarding the surrounding area and places to visit. Highly recommend.

  • "The cottage didn't have much privacy as very close to a holiday house and garden came right up to patio of end cottage."

    There needs to be some nets up esp at front door and patio doors and more privacy needed for using hot tub. The staff were very helpful and we had a lovely breakfast in the bistro. The cottage was spotless. There wasn't a welcome info pack but everything was straight forward to use. The scenery from cottage and grounds is beautiful. I will be going back to abbey farm with my touring caravan as its a stunning location.

  • "The cottage really wasn’t maintained very well."

    There were numerous small things that were broken or not working properly. As well as loud and badly creaking floorboards. The double mattress must have been so old as the springs creaked loudly which woke you up when moving and it was very uncomfortable, plus the window in the downstairs bedroom had very bad condensation and large damp patches on the walls. Radiator in downstairs bathroom was dripping.The hot tub cover was too difficult to lift off for use as it should have had a lever to help push it back! A pretty cottage, just a shame about all the problems with it!

  • "Went to the bistro to collect keys had to fight are way through some farmers, got to bar and said had come for keys, was given key and told if it wasn't right one come back, no customer service skills what so ever."

    Asked where the cottage was round the corner came the reply, definitely got the impression we weren't welcome . After unpacking decided to have a cup of tea only to find we had 2 mugs for a two bed cottage, on closer inspection found we had 1 cereal bowl 3 side plates 3 dinner plates and 1 small pan, so went back to bistro again struggled again to get to bar and asked young girl if we could have some more crockery, she then boxed every thing up for us, said if anything else was missing make a list and bring it back, at no stage did we receive an apology. On are way out of bistro the lady who gave us the keys looked at us puzzled we informed her about the problem and she walked no apology. We were due to have New Year's Eve meal in bistro at £40 per head but decided to cancel this after the way we were treated. Would have mentioned these points but the office was closed for Christmas, when we left office had lights on but nobody was there, no letter box so hung keys on handle as we looked round but couldn't find anyone.
