There were a few issues that were a little bit concerning to us during our stay. They were mainly around hygiene in the dining area in the conservatory at the back of the house. The blinds which run throughout the sloping ceiling of the conservatory had lots of dead insects which were clearly visible when the light shone through, I appreciate that these furnishings cannot be cleaned every day but with so many it felt that they hadn't been cleared for quite some time.
Also the tablecloths weren't exactly spotless, there were some stray hairs on them - each morning, not great really. And the worse thing was that there was a dog hair found in my breakfast - no it wasn't wire wool, and yes I could have complained but I had lost my appetite there and then and wouldn't have eaten another thing from that kitchen.
These issues really let our whole experience down. The house is actually nice, with ample parking at the back and guestrooms were well furnished. The house is well located and a short walk to town. Staff were courteous and pleasant, and they gave us a pot of tea on arrival which was nice. The kettle provided in our room left a lot to be desired though - see photos.
