Guests that stayed at this property said

Reviews are mixed regarding cleanliness. Some guests found the cottage immaculate, while others reported issues with kitchen cleanliness and mould on pillows. The positive experiences suggest good standards, but the negative comments indicate room for improvement.

The location is highly praised for its stunning walks and peaceful setting. The presence of farm animals and proximity to local attractions add to the appeal. No negative comments about the location suggest guests are generally satisfied.

Guests find the cottage comfortable, with cosy furnishings and a relaxing atmosphere. The addition of a hot tub is frequently mentioned as a highlight. However, some guests noted issues with beds and kitchen equipment, slightly detracting from the overall comfort.

Facilities receive mixed reviews. The hot tub and interaction with farm animals are positives, but guests have raised concerns about kitchen equipment, Wi-Fi availability, and maintenance issues like light bulbs and washing machine leaks.

There is insufficient information to assess thoughtfulness as there are no mentions of gifts or special touches that could be considered thoughtful gestures. Therefore, this category cannot be scored.

    The only thing is say to improve on is having some additional basic bits in the cottage, like caffitier, vinegar, salt and maybe a nice welcome pack? Hot tub was amazing and was very worth the extra cash! Also loved feeding the pigs

  • Jackie

    The cottage was lovely in a beautiful setting and sitting out in the hot tub was so relaxing. It was very spacious and well kitted out (although a mirror in the downstairs bedroom would be good) Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the property and location to anyone

  • Nick

    Farmer was very friendly and the local walks and area stunning. We will definitely be back.
