We had a lovely time, lovely room, lovely situation, it would have been nice to stay longer to do a little more other than enjoy the room - apparently there are circular walks from the farm and you can take the dogs for a walk, sounds lovely. Nice suggestions for days out too. We knew this would be the place for us as previous bad reviews criticised the 'hands off' management. Indeed we were left in peace on our lovely romantic weekend exactly as we hoped. That is not to say that we didn't receive a warm welcome, and the owner enquired at breakfast if all was going well, so we had ample opportunity to ask for anything we needed. There is also a phone in your room to ring with requests. Why people would need more was a mystery to me!
One thing I wanted to know before our visit and couldn't find in other reviews was the size of the Ecclesborne sauna. Described as 'bijou' I was worried it would be a squeeze. But it's comfortable for one, you can't lie down but can sit with your feet up and your back against the wall. Two can fit side by side if you know each other well ^^ Not much room to move but it's cosy. We are quite large too so smaller types should have no bother :D
This is a very expensive place for us (they almost lost a star for price but I couldn't do it in the end!) but if I were rich I would not stop until I'd tried every room. We had a lovely weekend and will almost certainly be back, but might be a few years before we can save up again. The breakfasts are splendid and will last any person of normal appetite for lunch as well. Very much recommend this place.
