I have hesitated to put a review up about Chevin Farm because, to be honest, it is so good that I don’t want it to be booked out when I need to stay.
The standards of the rooms, the breakfast and the welcome are all exemplary. The first couple of times I stayed I worried that they wouldn’t be able to keep up such high standards but in fact things have improved. For example this time I visited there was homemade cake left in our room and a fridge provided us with real milk.
The rooms (which are all different) and bathrooms are beautifully appointed and equipped without being soulless. It has always been beautifully clean throughout and in addition some very practical things like beautiful cotton sheets, a high quality (Sony) TV that works, fast free wi-fi (even in the furthest rooms), bottled water and plenty of parking make for a wonderful upmarket B&B.
It is fantastically quiet and peaceful there, whilst it isn’t a working farm it is still surrounded by fields. This rurality makes for its one shortcoming in that you can’t really walk anywhere for your evening meal. On the plus side there are lots of eating opportunities including some cracking pubs within five or ten minutes drive.
David and Sarah and the others who help out are really good at this. I always look forward to going back.
