We recently stayed here (9 adults and 2 children) to celebrate my Dad's 70th birthday. From the initial enquiry, Rachel was extremely helpful and professional. The property is well equipped with everything you could need and the onsite facilities were brilliant, especially for the children. Vic was always on hand and even personally delivered a dozen freshly laid eggs. I would highly recommend the property and holiday village!
We can here as a hen party. The building is beautiful and very well done out. The bedroom was smallish but more then enough room for a weekend trip. We were in the larger barn with a total of 21 staying. The living space was prefect for this. It was very well equipped with lots of glasses, plates cutlery etc. But no milk jug! I would come back on another large group booking as the place is ideal and always ready mentioned beautiful. A couple of downside is that it is very close to a train track and it is has no hot tub for our accommodation.
The Old Milking Parlour is part of a developing complex of barn conversions. Booking was easy. The price was good. Fairly newly opened, it is immaculate inside, with 6 double bedrooms, 2 of which are en-suite.
The location is peaceful and beautiful. The sitting room/kitchen is upstairs, so you get the best of the outlook. Great walking and pubs nearby. Beds are comfy and everything is in very good condition.
We filled the place almost to the brim, with 10 adults and 1 child. Unfortunately, for our group the venue wasn't great. We found the building's internal sound insulation insufficient. When one group decided to go to bed, they were kept awake by the others. And vice-verse in the morning. The larger en-suite rooms are directly below the lounge and kitchen too, so this made it worse. Pumps from running water was also a disturbance for us.
We also found the rooms only just large enough. The living area of the kitchen didn't have sofas for us all. Some remained at the dining table. I personally feel that less rooms and more living space would have been a better use of the building.
If you are a smaller group, who all go to bed at the same time then you will find it peaceful and gorgeous. Our group, sadly, didn't enjoy the stay as much as we should.
The Old Milking Parlour and the team behind it were excellent. The service throughout my booking and stay was second to none. Speedy & helpful responses and the quality of accommodation was excellent. I would highly recommend this venue and commend their commitment to customer service.
We visited as a group of 9 adults and 6 kids. The house is really well done out, modern and a nice finish to it. The majority of the bedrooms are on the ground floor, two with en suites. Upstairs is the kitchen and living area with another two rooms. The kitchen was really well equipped, one of the best stocked I've seen in a rental. There's a farm on site but this was closed when we were there which was a real shame for the kids. My only criticism of the place was the outside lighting. Because the majority of the bedrooms are on the ground floor it would make sense to turn the bright yellow lights off at midnight, instead they shine through the bedroom windows all night which I found made the rooms quite bright. Would I go back? Yep!
Family from the north and south of England joined us for a birthday celebration weekend in the Old Milking Parlour. The football pitch and the children's playground kept the youngest members of the party amused, while the adults had their reunion. The facilities in the unit were excellent. Everything was of good quality and much appreciated by the family. We would highly recommend it to anyone for an even longer stay.
Would definitely recommend! Very clean and beautifully decorated with everything you could wish for readily available during our stay. The children particularly enjoyed their invitation to feed the animals with Farmer Vic! Everyone in our family agreed what a fantastic place it was and we have all gone home with some lovely memories.
