RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEWS
This was an excellent property, with high quality fittings throughout, it would be difficult to ask for anything more from en-suites to every bathroom to two fridges (we used one for food and the other for drink) it is all there and we lacked for nothing. I would definitely recommend this property.
We had a wonderful four generation celebration of a 90th birthday with an afternoon tea party, for which the house and grounds were perfect. The bedrooms are all lovely and the owners have taken great care with the d?cor and the welcome. Several of us also enjoyed the hot tub and the children enjoyed the space inside and outside. The sun lounge area off the kitchen was a favourite place.
The kitchen setting was at Moor Farm Barns was lovely with room for everyone to get together in one area - plenty of space and the cooker was excellent for catering for a crowd.
The hot tub was an added bonus. All in all a lovely property for getting together with family.
Very friendly owners who were there if we needed them and were very helpful.
Lovely stunning barn with 8 great bedrooms & en-suite bathrooms, gorgeous kitchen & dining room, nice big lounge to chill out in, plenty of patio furniture & great hot tub.
Soap provided in some of the bathrooms, flowers on arrival, tea, coffee & sugar supplied for arrival all a nice little touch
However, when we booked to stay here the house was advertised as a detached barn & no mention of owners living next door, if we had known this we wouldn't have bothered booking, saying that they never really bothered us.
all comments below are to advise the owners of the problems we encountered & hopefully people arriving may see some change in the future, as this is a lovely place but with a few problems.
They need to relax on the Rules:
no shoes is a little over the top.
we were greeted by Matt on arrival at the utility door (main entrance to house) whose first words after saying hello were "please remove your shoes", this we felt was a little excessive, it is wooden flooring all through the kitchen & dining area (which we spent most our time) i understand he doesn't want mud on carpets so i think a more appropriate approach of "if all foot wear could be removed before stepping onto carpeted areas it will be appreciated", but if this is the case & he doesn't want footwear worn at all then maybe slippers should be provided.
There is also a rule of no food or drinks in the bedrooms or lounge, i personally don't know anyone who doesn't take a drink of juice or water or even tea to bed, also as the lounge was the only place with a tv we felt that saying no to drinks in there is also unreasonable, we like many on a weekend like a glass of wine or lager while watching tv.
There is no communal toilet, so having to go back to the bedrooms everytime was a bit of a pain, so in the evening's we ended up using the nearest bedroom to the kitchen which wasn't really fair on the couple staying in that room but it was easier, so we do feel they should put a communal toilet in & we felt that there is plenty of room for this in the utility.
Having only 1 key fob for electric gates was a bit of a pain
They also need to provide more recycling bins, when we arrived on the friday these were full from the previous people, & were not due to be emptied till the following week so having to leave it on the floor by the bins was not ideal (& there was a lot of recycling with 16 adults drinking).
A tip from the boys for the future, they think it lacked something like a pool table, darts board or table tennis etc, & spotted an old barn that could be converted to a games room.
We all had an amazing four day break, the property was very spacious and done out to a very high spec. The owners lived next door and were very helpful, so if you needed anything they were on hand to help but left you alone to enjoy your holiday. We would definitely go again.
