    This is one of the nicest places we have stayed. Location, facilities, space were perfect. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained with plenty of seating. We never go to the same place twice but this may be the exception!

  • "The old Farmhouse is a lovely building in a beautiful location."

    However it was somewhat spoiled by a few niggly things which could have easily been resolved. Uncomfortable seating in lounge and I've seen chair had a broken leg and could have been dangerous if say on. Freezer frozen up and drawers wouldn't open. Wet washing left in washing machine. Only one spare rubbish sack and as house is so remote it was a long drive to nearest supermarket. Games room messy and no table tennis balls and only 2 bats. Mini pools table unusable as uneven and balls rolled away. Pools table didn't send white ball back if pocketed. (also it would have be useful if in the information sent out before arrival we were told weed need 50 pence pieces. Leaks from seals around. 2 showers and one in the family bathroom where actually the water came through ceiling in dining room. On the positive side we enjoyed the hot tub.

  • "As a family we had the most wonderful holiday at The Old Farmhouse."

    Everything we needed was there! The property was spotlessly clean on arrival, the wine, cake and chocolate a very much appreciated gesture! There is so much space for everyone and it was perfect that we could all sit together at meal times in the fab dining room! The garden is exceptional, the hot tub was fab, we all loved being able to enjoy it all because we were fortunate with such good weather. Only thing we were disappointed in was the sun beds (two) were broken and unable to use them, but a picnic blanket on the grass works just as well! We loved it - thank you for letting us stay and we hope to be able to come again!

  • "We had the most amazing weekend at the old farmhouse, which was made even more special due to the beautiful weather we were fortunate to have."

    A couple of practical things that could improve it would be: If the four poster room had an en-suite. It seems the number one room for size and gives an impact when you walk in and yet no en-suite. Increasing bathroom capacity would be good. Also the door on the kitchen should have a lock as it was time consuming to keep trying to hold it shut with a door stop that perhaps wasn’t quite heavy enough for the job whilst people were going in and out to the lovely large porch area to get loaded and unloaded. This was particularly challenging with small fast dogs and an infant. A good addition would be a stable door so that the bottom could be shut and the kitchen would also benefit from the stream of light coming into the porch. The door to the downstairs bedroom and bathroom area would also benefit from being able to shut properly. Another practical aspect is 9.30am is too early to get 12 people up and out. I do appreciate there has to be turnover time but feel 9.30 is pushing it. Kitchen additions - some wooden spoons please and a bigger toaster! Also it would be helpful to have a given time of hot tub check as the gate was left open without warning and with small fast dogs and an infant this was a bit of a worry. Overall the holiday was amazing with plenty of room inside and out. Would definitely recommend and yes would go again.

  • "We celebrated our mother's 60th birthday here and had a great time."

    The property has a great layout and we all enjoyed the hot tub. The staff we spoke to were also very polite and friendly. The property was well equipped, an ideal layout for everyone including the dogs and young children. The games room was great, even though it was shared we didn't see many people and it was lovely being in the countryside. The home made cake was a very nice touch and much appreciated. You need to be aware that the property is very remote (not the owners fault) so it is a very long walk to a local pub or town (we didnt do it as too far with young children). Suggestions for improvemenrt are that the hot tub wasn't warm on arrival and the wi-fi isn't the best if your staying in the building at the bottom of the garden (an idea for improvement could be to put some more wi fi extenders in). There were also a few cobwebs around the property. The check in and out times could also be looked at, as it felt like the 4pm check in was quite late (especially when your on holiday and you just want to get in) and the 9.30am check out could be increased to at least 10am to make it less stressful. Of course its understandable that cleaners need to attend, but when the check in time for other guests is 4pm then that's 6.5 hours to clean. Lastly the hot tub could do with being turned 45 degrees so that the back of the hot tub is facing the cottage, to allow you to see the lovely views from the mountains. Currently when the cover is off, this blocks your view. Again this is only a suggestion. Overall, we would recommend the property but sadly we wouldnt stay again due to the remoteness. However, we really enjoyed our stay and would like to thank the staff for their friendliness. Thanks for helping us to have a great time.

    We would have liked some more serving dishes plates and a couple of big saucepans but as this had been previously mentioned we brought our own. Gorgeous peaceful location with lovely views, though one bedroom looked over a carpark and what seemed like a storage yard. The cabin in the garden was lovely as was the excellent hot tub. Would definitely recommend for a get together we had great fun

  • "Well equipped & comfortable cottage."

    Clean, but not spotless given the extended Covid cleaning hours. Dining room had an unusual smell, appreciate it’s an old building and can smell mouldy, we didn’t use the dining room because of it. Hot tub is lovely and checked daily . The garden is beautiful and perfect for little ones. There is a builders yard next door which although wasn’t intrusive noise wise, it was very unsightly and not mentioned in the cottage information. The large refuge bins were overfilled, meaning rubbish was left on the floor beside it, attracting lots of wasps and flies. The information regarding recycling was unclear. There should be more bin space for the amount of cottages on site. That said we had a very relaxing few days. I probably wouldn’t rebook this cottage, mainly because of bedroom layout with toddlers, but it does have a charm, and I can see how other people revisit.

  • "On your original site you stated that the four poster room had an en-suite shower room which made 5 bathroom/shower rooms."

    When we arrived, we could not find a shower room in the four poster room? On speaking to the owner we were told that this room did not have an en-suite? One of the main reasons for booking the farmhouse was the bedroom/bathroom configurations for our family. I am sure I have a print out of the original front page of your site showing that the four poster room has an en-suite? You have since amended the info, I suspect after a phone call or email from the farmhouse owner who was very kind? We did enjoy our week, after not seeing family for over a year, but it was blighted by this. The donkey shed was unusable because of a broken bed so we couldn't really use the shower room as it's at the bottom of the garden, leaving one bathroom and 2 en-suites. Will we book with you again?...not sure? :(

The garden is nothing short of sensational, beautifully landscaped with flashy furniture and a hot tub, you will do well to even leave this cottage and get into Westhope itself.

The garden also contains a compact yet impressive studio living area, decorated beautifully and set away from the main building for those who like to get away.
