I booked for B&B and an evening meal for the last night of our holiday and although it was more expensive than the places we usually stay at we thought it would be a lovely end to our holiday. On arrival I was surprised to find a lot of the paint was peeling off the front door and the garden resembled a wilderness, not a good first impression. Whilst we were given a nice welcome we were taken up to our room and when I went to look at of the window I noticed that the window frames were covered in green mould. I have no complaints about the room or the ensuite just the state of the window frames which must not have been cleaned for quite a while.
When we went down for our evening meal the dishes were palced on a table in the room and we had to help ourselves to the beef stew and vegetables.The gravy had not been thickened and was very watery and not really enjoyable. Then we noticed there was another small dish of fruit crumble and cream which we once again helped ourselves to and no offer of tea or coffee to finish off the meal. The breakfast was nothing to write home about but adequate.
Whilst the farm is situated in a lovely area I feel that it is very overpriced at £85per room per night for bed and breakfast and £19 per person for the evening meal. Maybe we should have kept to our normal price range and not tried to have a bit of luxury.
