Seemed very expensive for what you get. The staff were lovely and the breakfast very good but I've stayed in a lot better places for a lot less. The room was very spacious, seems a bit empty and the bathroom was outdated to be honest. Bed was comfy and the room was clean. I left my electric toothbrush by mistake... More

Dear Ben, We do in fact have your toothbrush (and toothpaste!) and I welcome you to get in touch to help us arrange returning it to you. I can only imagine that you rung before housekeeping had finished work and brought all of the lost property to reception (we do get a great deal). Thank you for your positive comments.... More

My niece had her wedding reception at this lovely place, although we have past it many times on way to airport it is the first time we have been in. The inside is very nicely decorated and in keeping with its original theme, we even had the meal in a modified pig stay, which couldn't have been nicer. I thought... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your good experience. I am sorry about the outside door of your bedroom; these can pick up dirty easily as they are external rather than being undercover however I will pass this feedback on to housekeeping. Thank you, Jack Shields Director More

On the 30th of May 2015 we held our wedding at this venue and all we can say is amazing, We couldn't fault this venue in any way whatsoever, the staff the rooms and the venue in general we doubt could be beaten. We had a number of guest stay overnight and as with us no-one could find fault. The... More

We were mightily impressed with the venue after visiting for a friend's wedding last year. The staff were very friendly and attentive and made the day run very smoothly. We particularly liked the wedding "cake" made of cheese and the band with the fella with the washboard. Amazing fun with quality booze and food a plenty. I'd highly recommend here... More

Dear Steph, thank you for leaving a review! We've done a few cakes of cheese over the years, but I think that was one of my favourites, and 'Lil' Jim's Big Squeeze' are always brilliant fun! We hope to see you all again soon. Best Wishes, Emma More

The staff at the farmhouse hotel were very attentive during our wedding reception. Everything ran very smoothly. Would strongly recommend the farmhouse as a venue to hold your wedding reception! Such a lovely memorable day.

We got married at the farmhouse on 31/01/15. From the initial look around until the big day, Shelley, Emma and the rest of the team were absolutely fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble and everything that we wanted we had. The day was absolutely amazing, it just went by too fast! We can not recommend them more, everyone who came... More
