  • “This is a warm and spacious barn conversion type property set in a farm environment.”

    Overall it was a good experience, but there were a few disappointments. ...

    Overall it was a good experience, but there were a few disappointments. Whilst some areas were clean (bathrooms), the floors were swept but grubby. We had to wait 15 minutes after entry time and cleaners were rushing to leave. Drawers and cupboards, particularly in the kitchen, have grit/hair residue. One particularly deeply buttoned chair was so grubby we unfolded throws to cover it so we felt comfortable to use it, but the throws had quite a bit of dog hair on them! Curtains are hanging droopily in places. Kitchen/cooking equipment is minimal. Fine for us as just a long weekend and we ate out. But if you’re a family of 4 planning on comprehensive self catering it might be tricky. The fridge is very small and a Christmas roast wouldn’t be viable. Mugs and plates are chipped/worn. We couldn’t find any trays. The nature of the building means natural light is slightly limited, which wouldn’t be a problem if artificial lighting compensated. Lighting is dim. Probably this is less noticeable in summer than it was in November. There is a chest of drawers in the twin room, however no wardrobe. It is very warm and there is lots of space. Logs were provided for the woodburner which worked really well. There is a warm boiler room for drying coats and boots which was useful. The beds are very comfortable, the bathrooms very attractive and luxurious and there’s a nice big dining table; great for board games and spreading your maps out. The TV provision is great with a good selection of blue ray/DVDs. Our impression is the original conversion and set up was high end and polished. The ongoing maintenance of this seems to be not quite as strong which is a shame as it wouldn’t take much effort or expense to bring it back up, just a bit of care and attention to detail.
