“country idyll”
Reviewed 14 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Longthwaite. Tim is an excellent host who was helpful throughout the booking process as well as checking up during our stay. A cosy, rustic house which offers a great way to explore this beautiful corner of the world.

Don't bother packing games/books for your stay - there are so many of them already there, and in wide variety! And often just sitting by the fire was sufficient for whiling away the evening.

Another WC would have been a great help, especially as a large group, but we managed in the end!

Sebastian, thanks for the review - if you were able to change the title from "Mr" to say, Longthwaite Farmhouse, that would be great.

“An idyllic place to escape from the rat-race of modern life!”
Reviewed 28 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Delightful is the only word I can use to describe Longthwaite Farmhouse and our all-too-short stay in this wonderful backwater. Want to go back very soon, but that may not be possible. The place is exactly as described in the literature and has few mod-cons (no TV,, no dishwasher, no WIFI, etc.) and not even a usable mobile phone signal - but who cares? It's a very comfortable place to stay, adequately equipped and very peaceful - even the sheep in the nearby farm barn seem unusually quiet (they were being sheared during out stay). The nearby river is very attractive, through we resisted the temptation to bathe. You can get meals and other refreshments in the YHA - a couple of hundred yards away - and that has a free WIFI connection (when it's working).
