I have just come back from this farm stay and I have to say that we were pretty astounded with what we found compared with what some of the reviews say! While we would concur that the hosts are wonderful and the building attractive the price they are charging and what you get for it just don't add up!
On the surface of it the rooms are nice enough, but look a bit more carefully and you find dust in every corner and mould in the grouting in the showers. The pool is distinctly shabby, untidy and when we went there taken over by a large group of teenagers who were shouting and playing loud music. (We could only assume they were friends of the owners children who were sitting there with them at the time) Worse of all however - there were two manky looking farm dogs in there aswell!! How they can advertise this pool as being for guests enjoyment is beyond me!
Breakfast, again was a huge disappointment. Having worked and stayed in different types of accommodation all over the world for years now, I can honestly say this was one of the poorest I've had... Stale tasting bread, lukewarm 'hot' water, butter missing, chipped mugs and toaster so old and decrepit that I'm amazed it didnt burn the place down. Flies everywhere (understandable given its a farm, but my god - buy a kitchen fly killer, plug it in and pull a net curtain or something over the door!)
All this for 110euros per night! I can only imagine that the (very nice) owners have got very complacent over the years - or that or they are just over it. Sawdays really need to take this one out the book!
