Owners friendly and welcoming, yet left us in peace and much preparation had been made with the fire set, fresh flowers, and tea, coffee milk etc in place. Beds were made up and good quality towels provided. Highlight or low-light depending on your view was the grass snake in the living room which I was fascinated with but my wife was terrified of, and so she stood on a chair for some time. As part of this, I was asked to ensure there was nothing else hidden so moved rugs, furniture sofas etc to sweep the stone floor thoroughly which was when we discovered the months ./ years of fluff and dust under the sofas, which when aligned with a slightly grimy kitchen worktops, hob and cupboards suggest cleaning was more visual than thorough. I spent a good hour cleaning food off the worktops and cupboard doors, and grime off tables etc. Under the bed was akin to a furry forest of fluff etc but it soon swept up. Bathroom blind was broken and too short to cover the window. The little deck area was ideal to sit out, but like the house, in need of a tidy up with weeds through the path, and a number of filled black bin bags and jerry cans greeting our arrival, and remaining in place until the owners returned from their own trip on our 4th day. Road noise was high, as the main road is just a few yards away, but we perhaps should have though of this as we knew the location in advance, but presumed it was on a quiet road.

Nearby, best food we found was the Ship Inn at West Stour, and the Half Moon Inn at Horsington was well worth a visit, and is walking distance, and a pleasant walk at that if you’re prepared to follow the paths through fields etc rather then up the main road.

Overall, a lovely place for sound sleepers, in need of a ‘fresh eyes’ from the owners in terms of décor (quality of finish, not style) and hygiene, and perhaps a warning about the road noise.
