Just back from a nights stay at Brenley Farm. Set in a gorgeous location, a real working farm with a feeling of being in the middle of nowhere even though it is conveniently placed near major access routes. Its perfectly peaceful with no noise from traffic, the farmhouse is surrounded by other farm buildings and fields of hops, apples, pears and paddocks.
The room we stayed in (Grannies Room) was lovely and big with TV and sofa area and a large king sized bed which was very comfortable. There was a slightly odd bathroom arrangement as they had tried to squeeze in an 'en-suite' within the confines of the old property. The toilet and the shower are in separate rooms either side of the bed and the wash basin is within the bedroom itself. We didn't find this an issue, however it might be for other visitors.
We couldn't fault the service from Maggie, from making the booking to when we left in the morning nothing was too much trouble. We were greeted with a lovely cup of tea and a generous selection of cakes. The full english breakfast was lovely with regional bacon and sausages, eggs from the farm hens and home made jams - delicious!!
We will definitely be going back (when the weather is a bit more clement!) and we would recommend staying here to any of our friends!
