My husband and I stayed at The Factory for one night only in February 2014 but so wish it could have been more. Janet & Paul are such fabulous hosts and nothing was too much trouble and the conversation was fun. Janet recommended some great places to eat and the best place to go for fresh crayfish and to catch sight of the deals.
Janet & Paul have decorated the guest accommodation in a fabulously creative and quirky style and we were really impressed with the colour schemes. The sympathetic conversion of the Factory itself with its beautiful timbers and sliding runner doors showing off its history was wonderful. We would most definitely return to The Factory, preferably with some friends to make the best use of the facilities on offer as we felt rather spoilt having the whole place to ourselves. Breakfast was out of this world with fruits from the garden, homemade yoghurt and divine fruit juice of carrot, apple and orange. Paul's crayfish omelette was also delicious not to mention the divine home made muffins. My husband very much appreciated Paul's Barista skills as the coffee was excellent.
We loved Sparkle one of the cats and she kept us company in our courtyard garden whilst we sat and relaxed. The hot tub spa was a real treat too, not to mention the complimentary snacks on arrival and the lovely touch of a bottle of fizz in the fridge. The attention to detail was indeed fabulous and we can't wait to return. Top marks!
