“Would not recommend this at all. Grubby, poor state of repair, furniture dated, majority of mugs chipped and unpleasant.”

Highly disappointing.
Poor state of repair.
Curtains either missing or damaged.
Bedding old, some with stains.
bathrooms very grotty.
Only one oven shelf in arga impossible to cook for 8 people, 6 hobs though.
Most cutlery, utensils and crockery needed washing before use. Some were damaged and unhygienic.
Bare electric wires visable on electric fire and kitchen radio.
Base of bed unsavoury looking due to staining.
Attic room and bathrooms unheated.

The views expressed here are mostly inaccurate.
It would seem that this person was expecting a higher grade of accommodation, and so was disappointed. It is made clear on the website that The Croft is an older property,is of 3-star standard, and people should not expect the standards of a modern, higher-grade property.
There are 2 ovens in the Aga, and so 2 shelves.There is also a combination oven/microwave, and a four-plate electric hob.
There are no bare electric wires.
The main bathroom has an electrically-heated towel-rail. The en-suite has a radiator.
There is a net curtain in the main bathroom. Curtains in the en-suite.
All rooms have curtains.
Bedding provided is of good standard, some of it new.
One or two mugs/plates might have been chipped recently, but there are plenty of others available which are not.
People considering booking are asked to view the photographs of the house, which paint a rather different picture to this review.

“old and tired but this is reflected in the price”
Reviewed November 19, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

A large property desperate for some tlc but no complaints as this is reflected in the price.
One niggle is lack of oven as the aga just doesnt cut it when cooking for 10 and if going as part of a group get there first so you can park as this is really tight,,,,,, and you really dont want to be in the attic!

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
