“Loved this place! We will be back!”

Helen and family couldn't have been more accomodating and we loved our stay at Ashtead Farmhouse.
We went for my dads 70th birthday and he was thrilled by the thoughtful balloons and card that Helen left for him. It's such a peaceful spot and we were totally at home in this gorgeous house.
We had a real fire every night and it was so cosy and relaxing to chill out in our countryside retreat.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place and we will definitely be back.
Thank you Helen! X

“Memorable and cosy”
Reviewed August 25, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This is an excellent farmhouse with good facilities. The location is slightly remote but it was fantastic to be surrounded by green pastures. The downstairs toilet was leaking but Helen informed me of this on arrival and a plumber came to fix this the next day. She also brought balloons and a cake for my birthday which had been pre-arranged and paid for by me darling wife as a surprise. The facilities are more than adequate, child friendly ( I had a 4 and 1 year old) and clean. There were a few flies which I would expect for a working farm but the animals (sheep, chickens, geese, dogs, cats and horses to name a few) around kept my sons interested and intrigued. I was dying to light the fire place but it was summer and warm so others in my party objected! Maybe I'll come back in winter sometime!!!? Thanks Helen.

“Beautiful presented cottage”

We stayed over the weekend with family and 2 young children, On arrival the cottage was beautiful presented and spotless.

The open plan space is excellent for spending time with family and the upstairs living space is warm and cozy.

Everything you could ask for is provided in the cottage and is also a great location for heading into any of the local towns.

We would definitely stay again and recommend to family and friends if wanting to stay in the lakes.

“Excellent - would recommend”
Reviewed August 16, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely house - just wished we had booked for longer! Our children loved the bunk bed room, and all the beds were lovely and comfortable. Everything was clean and the whole place was lovely and homely. Thank you!

“Had the best time, so sorry to leave”
Reviewed August 6, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed in Ashstead Farmhouse for 8 days and had a lovely time. It's a bit off the main road, so totally safe for our kids to wander around outside. The cottage was clean and comfortable with plenty of space and a well equipped kitchen. Helen was a very gracious hostess and her lovely kids were very friendly.
The only thing that was a bit problematic was the erratic wifi, which was difficult because my husband needed it for work.
All in all-a great time was had by all.
