I stayed here with a group. It is very pretty, great views. It looks to have good amenities, but it was cold in October.
In the house we stayed in there were three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The living room was comfortable. The kitchen was well-equipped. It even had a couple of coffee makers, a good sized fridge. It didn't have any cleaning equipment, so guests had to bring that. What we all kept forgetting was sugar for some reason.
The beds are comfortable. The single beds are a bit narrow. I'm used to sleeping on a wider bed and almost rolled off a few times. The lights are a bit interesting to figure out. There are main switches, but they are for all the lamps in the room, or at least the standing one. One problem that we had was that there were very few power outs, and none in a place where I could plug my chargers in without putting things on the floor.
The bathrooms are nice. However, the tub is not good for having a bath in. It has a lot of veneer missing. Like someone burned it off at places.
The heating worked well, though we needed the thing unlocked quite late at night. Luckily the estate keeper was available.
Now for the negatives. One evening we had a huge storm, and we had water coming in everywhere. We even had water so deep in the room, that we couldn't figure out how it got there. We didn't have anything to clean it up with either. So in case of a storm, start putting things on the furniture.
Another problem that we had was the doors. They are the type where you move them and they make so much noise, everyone wakes up. So forget trying to quietly sneak out to the bathroom.
The third problem was the bugs. They were everywhere, and there was no precaution against them at all. I know that we're on a farm, but still... We even had an accident with that, because something bit me in the middle of the night. The staff was great, they rushed me to the hospital right away in their own car. However, I do wish they had taken some steps to prevent the animals from getting in. I had something huge, like 10cm running out of my bed, and that was probably what bit me.
Overall, great place. It would be even better if they took care of the things I mentioned.
