“Amazing place to stay”

we stayed here with family for my husbands 40th birthday, the place is amazing, you walk through and it just keeps getting better. My son (11) loved the just dance game that was in the provided wii.
We all enjoyed the hot tub which we used every day, (need to book with proprietors separately)!
My mother in law fell head over heels with the gorgeous farm dogs!
And the excellently equipped kitchen was used to full advantage, when we cooked dinner Saturday night and then we all sat round the huge dining table for an amazing family meal.
Only downside was no wifi and extremely rare phone reception!

Thank you for this wonderful review and we are glad that we made your husbands 40th birthday a memorable one. It was nice to hear that your son enjoyed a boogie with the Wii dance game and your mother in-law was entertained by the lovely farm dogs. Reviews like this brighten up our day and we can't wait for your next booking with us!

“Lovely weekend break in a beautiful cottage”

Just got home from girly weekend at The Shed. It's a fabulous, spacious cottage situated on a working farm. We paid the supplement for the hot tub and it was worth every penny- very relaxing!
The cottage is very spacious, every bedroom having it's own bathroom! Towels were supplied soft, fluffy and smelling gorgeous- better than most hotel towels I've used! Special attention paid to making this home from home - wii console/games, DVD player and DVDs plenty of books and magazines.
I would definatly recommend staying here as well as dining out at The Old Mill where we were served a delicious Sunday lunch!!

This is a very spacious property, even for a group of 8. It is done up lovely. With the Wii and loads of DVD's and books there was enough to do in the house while it was raining outside. The only thing I missed was wifi/internet access, I just assumed it would be there and it was a bit of a nuisance that it wasn’t.

This very spacious rental suited us very well, we were a group of 8 of which 3 children aged 4 -6.
Lots of space for kids to entertain themselves inside and out. Stylish interior design, nice sheets, towels, bedspreads etc.
I appreciated the fact that it was mentioned that some motorway noise can be heard. The weather wasn't so good that we spent time sitting in the garden, so I don't know if the sound would have bothered us. We did have games and sports in the garden without even noticing the sound.
Very friendly and helpful owners.
Tips: the dishwasher is too small for 8 people and didn't clean very well. More sizeable pans would be good. The lighting inside on the groundfloor can be improved in the living room and in particular the dining area was either too dark or too bright.
One last thing that would have made it even better for us: we only needed the house for 4 nights, frustrating to have to pay for the whole week.
