Stayed here with my husband for 2 nights over August bank holiday weekend, on arrival all seems lovely, great setting all clean and tidy. We were met by the owner who did seem a little rushed and flustered and was told that as we were only staying for the 2 nights - other guests staying for longer, we were in the main house, from initial look it appears it was her house, her bedroom!!!! we walked through the hallway with boots and coats belonging to the owner and up the stairs to a bedroom in the top of their house opposite the daughters bedroom!!!!!. I booked the room in the barns for the reason it looked lovely on the website, from the images it appeared to have a small patio with table and chairs and most important a fridge as we had 2 days of packed lunch items for the walking we had planned and eating outside in the evenings.
Sadly this wasnt what we got, no fridge - we were offered the use of the house fridge to put food in, I turned this down mainly due to it being weird surely I was going to be walking into their kitchen to get my food. A thick feather duvet was on the bed with a clean but tea/coffee stained un-ironed duvet cover, pillowcases and bedsheet, the bed was not comfy and we were roasting all night, could only open the ceiling windows a little as it rained quite heavily and it was letting the rain in, there were patio sets but these are on the end of the larger week stay barns but was offered use of a patio set which again was outside their lounge by the main house, I am sure that looking out at us all evening would have been a little odd. I have to say we were offered to swap with one of the rooms in the barn but then someone else would have had the same issues, it what would have been better if we have been emailed to say that they were overbooked and sorry no room for us rather than as it came across to be greedy for the money and shoving us in their house.
On arrival down for breakfast we were advised that a family had not turned up the night before so did we want the barn room, an offer which we took up and moved our luggage to the new room.
The barn room appeared as we had booked and had expected, sadly on closer inspection rust marks on the pillowcases again, huge cobwebs hanging from the ceiling and a roof light that had no blind so it was very light all night. Yes the rooms had lovely plush curtains, and thick towels all labelled from John Lewis, but sadly the little things do let it down, both cream rugs on the floor were badly discoloured and stained, when I used the hairdryer I could only see one side of my hair as the plug was too far from the mirror, again a huge thick duvet - its August not mid winter, dust on pictures, the bin in the bathroom was very grubby, no bathmat. On the plus side the breakfast was very nice with a good selection and the hot tub helped some of the negatives. It just put a little downer of what had the potential to be a fantastic place, it just isnt quite the luxury it has advertised at least not in our experience, so sadly next time I think it probably will be the Travelodge just up the road as they will give me what I book and pay for.
