My memories of this hidden gem will always be very special as it was the perfect setting for me to propose to my long suffering Girlfriend!
Even without the proposal I scored maximum "Great Boyfriend" points the minute we pulled up!
It doesn't matter why you are going to stay....just as long as you do!
In summary, the location is idyllic to say the least, the gardens are enchanting, the buildings are straight from a fairy tale, and the welcome from Sarah couldn't have been warmer even if you were a member of the family.
Attentive without being over bearing, although close in proximity, you could genuinely feel you are in the middle of nowhere and no one else is about.
We stayed in the Hop Pickers house, which has exactly the right blend of character features with the very latest creature comforts, it is decorated brilliantly without chince or cheese. Clean, tidy, furnished to a high quality, the bed was amazing.... I haven't slept that well in years! There is even a document that details the history of the barns pre-conversion which really makes you appreciate the building and history.
Amazing value for what you get, (don't tell Sarah, but I would have happily paid more!).
I cannot recommend this place enough, we are definitely looking at several return trips, there is so much to do in the area, we basically used the weekend to recharge batteries and just enjoy listening to music (They even provide an iPod and dock) while sat by the wood burner, Or lounging upstairs on the sumptuous settee watching a bit of TV.
For a better than value for money stay in a beautiful part of the world in amazing accommodation I have to say this place cannot be beaten...... Actually should I rave so much about Brook Farm, if you all listen to me there won't be any vacancies next time I try to book!
Sarah should be so proud of her little haven, keep up the good work and don't change a thing!
