Have just returned from Lower Yelland Farm and can back up the rest of the reviews on TripAdvisor with regard to location and the food etc, and we welcomed the fresh milk available in the small fridge. The rooms are kept beautifully clean, and tea / coffee trays replenished daily. As I have mobility problems and some days require a wheelchair it can be difficult to find suitable places to stay, and I did state this when booking, so was very surprised when on arrival Peter showed my husband to an up stairs room. There was now way I was able to make the stairs, but luckily their one and only ground floor room was available and Peter swapped things around and accommodated us in there, which luckily had a King size bed, but the en suite is very cramped and we had to pay more for this room, then on top of this Peter then had to cut short our planned stay by one night as the room was required for another booking. Other than this we have just 2 criticisms, one major - we would have like the towels changed if not on a daily basis then at least twice during a 7 day stay, and the second one more a minor one - the bedding is looking rather tired and well used, so could do with renewing. But on the whole a pleasant stay and would stay there again.
