I wish I had read the terrible review here before I bothered to contact the Weatherbury Farm "folks". I wrote them in February a nice email asking about the accommodations for my 2 year old and myself, traveling alone in June. I noted that the only train service would have us arrive around 9pm and I asked if they could accept us at that late hour.
The response I got back weeks later was snotty and incredibly rude. Marcy Tudor wrote that they are farmers (gee, really?) and that it would "be best" if I checked into a hotel instead of coming to them, and strangely, cited that many others "from New York City" had planned to take the train, but no one did. (What does that have to do with anything?) She goes on in this condescending manner about her recent vacation and how I should go elsewhere for everything like groceries- no maps provided. The kookiest part was her talking about my 2 year old completing a workbook... as another reviewer noted, these people don't have even a small clue about children.
Nonetheless, I replied and asked her specifically if she would accept us arriving at 9pm from the train.
I got no answer.
Save yourself a trip- I noticed also that the positive reviewer lives near the farm. If you are coming from a distance... you put yourself in a bad position with these hosts from hades. Take the proprietor's advice: STAY ELSEWHERE!
