I feel compelled to write this review even though I never normally comment about hotels, but I honestly have never stayed anywhere in my life like Barnabrow and I dont mean that in a good way! Yes its quirky and the setting is lovely and that I'm afraid is where the positives end! We attended a wedding and stayed in one of the cottages which are self catering and you can't get breakfast unless you stayed in the house, you would think that in this day and age they would be delighted to have paying guests for breakfast but not so! I dont know where to start on the cottage, It was filthy. So bad we couldn't get into the shower the next morning as it was gross with dead flys, spiders and as for the scum all around and on the tiles. We had to wear our shoes the whole time in the cottage as everywhere was so dirty. The bed had what was once a white throw at the end of the bed but needless to say it no longer kept its former glory and the over powering smell of damp kept me awake and cold even though it was July but unfortunately there was no other place to sleep as all the rooms were occupied by other friends who all had the same experience.
I have to say though that the wedding meal was good!
