Let me start by saying John and Hilary are really nice hosts but our experience there left a lot to be desired. The farmhouse is in a beautiful spot but to reach it you have to go about 1/2 mile down an extremely narrow and muddy lane. We had an apartment consisting of a bedroom, a tiny bathroom, a sitting room and a kitchenette. The bathroom was tiny with a good shower, a toilet squeezed into the narrowest of spaces and a washbasin (we couldn't get hot water) which was no use at all as it was only about 4ins across and had a cabinet above it. We had to wash at the sink in the kitchen. There had been a slip-up with the provided towels as they were the ones the previous guests had been using and were filthy. They were quickly changed when we brought it to Hilary's notice.The kitchen was quite well equipped but we found that we had to wash everything before we used it as the previous guests hadn't been over-fussy washing them. There was no dishcloth nor teatowel and the provided paper towels were quickly used up with no spares at hand. The hot water tap produced just a trickle and took two or three minutes for hot water to start flowing. The sitting room had glass French windows which would be lovely on a warm summer's day but they wouldn't close properly which is not good this time of the year. The sttee in the sitting area smelled and looked none too clean. I am really sorry to give such a poor report but all this was exactly as we found it. If I were to make a constructive suggestion it would be to dispense with the kitchen and improve the bathroom. The hot water system needs sorting, the French doors repairing and more attention given to cleanliness and provision of things like towels, etc.
