I have no idea where westend2 stayed as it clearly wasn't Carents Farm so please ignore that review. Carents Farm is quality accommodation in a beautiful rural setting. The period house and grounds are amazing, the latter of which you are allowed to wander at your leisure, marvelling at the amazing vegetable garden and mini-orchard as you go. B&B accommodation is in the Cheese House, an elegant but contemporary conversion of a the old farm building. Downstairs you'll find a comfy sofa and chairs, TV and DVD player. Upstairs is a beautiful, tranquil bedroom and well appointed bathroom with views across the surrounding fields out of every window. Little extras have been thrown in to ensure you want for nothing during your stay. Expensive toiletries in the bathroom, loads of mirrors (essential for girls travelling together), a selection of books, videos for the children and films on DVD for the grown ups, tea, coffee, fresh milk, biscuits and the huge breakfast, where there was something for every taste. I stayed with a friend and dog (who loved the attached field) for one night and it wasn't enough. We will be back again soon and for longer, especially at Neil and Claire's excellent rates! They are lovely people too.
PS. I have never posted a review before but Carents is so good that sometimes, you just have to make an effort. I live in London, travel with work, have stayed in some outstanding places in the past and have tyically high standards. Carents definitely fulfils them!
