After arriving and having to phone a mobile no on the door to be let in, we were shown to our room at the rear of the barn. The welcome was nice and friendly with the lady being very helpful in putting up a travel cot for our 7 week old son.
First impressions seemed good as the room was clean and tidy tho a bit dark even with the main light on, it did have a fridge which might be useful if a cold beer is your thing.
As mentioned in another review you have to be a bit of an acrobat to brush your teeth successfully without banging your head on the stupidly placed shelf above the sink, couple that with the fact that the Tiles in the bathroom seemed to have been patched up without much attention to detail, the shower switch needed some attention and the bedside light didn't work left me with the impression that it's all been done without little thought or care for customer impressions.
On a more positive note the breakfast was well cooked, my only gripe was apart from the toast we weren't offered any choice it was just do you want a cooked breakfast ??
Didn't live up to my expectations and would probably stay elsewhere if I found myself in the area again.
