These buildings are very handsome and are in a lovely location, however we stayed in one of the barn conversions and felt that it was overpriced and a bit tatty, there was evidence of wear and poor repairs-dishwasher, etc. In order to justify the price, the place could do with a make over, perhaps the conversion was done a good few years ago. 2nd double bedroom was very small and cramped, almost claustrophobic, as was 2nd bathroom. Hot tub was fun, swimming pool tatty[rotten window frames, pool cover tatty and dirty] and very small and the sauna didn't really work, wasn't hot enough.
We were shouted at by one of the owners-"Get away from our drive way!!' when we were merely passing with our dog on a lead. Very imperious, seem to forget that we were paying guests with a right to be where we were. However the staff were helpful and pleasant. Maybe the other properties are better than Cockanynes, we also booked quite late and so were limited on choice.
