    “The Granary was a fantastic building with plenty of room to cater for large groups/families.”

    ...

    It's position in the middle of nowhere, but next to a small working farm within a large estate, was great for us and a brilliant experience. We were a family of 6 people and it did serve us well, although a little big. The kitchen was well stocked but was missing a must important piece of equipment - a corkscrew. The large fridges and freezers were great but no door storage. The large range was a feature and easy enough to use. Plenty of bedrooms for all of us, all with their own ensuite is a great selling point for this property. Then there is the suspended log fire. Beautiful. Would have been nice to have smaller logs to put on though. The ones provided were rather large. However, it did not go without its drawbacks. There wasn't always a bath math provided and so had to use a towel. We couldn't work the washing machine and there were no instructions. We didn't use the dish washer as it looked quite muggy and unclean. One or two of the bathroom basin felt as though they had a rescue on them. But the biggest thing I found was the dust on the sofas. They had obviously not been moved and patted down for some time. Even the spiders had taken up permanent residence. Now I know it was a Granary with brick walls inside and out which by its nature creates dust all the time and it was always going to be rustic rather than pristine, but the sofas had obviously never been been hoovered or puffed up for some time. Even though we were the first in from the Covid 19 ongoing situation, I felt it had been left during lockdown and not freshen up before we went in. This of course did not spoil our overall enjoyment of the place, the landscape and nature within it, but I would expect more in the way of cleaning, freshing and keeping on top of this beautiful building. I would be happy to return again with a larger group to make it more cost effective even though it had been reduced due to numbers by the pandemic.
