Arrived late here however directions and instructions were great as we were able to get straight in and settle.
very tidy on arrival and everything we needed was there.
we were blown away at the beauty of the area and the scenery. with two younger boys and two older teenagers they were in their element. plenty of space and lots of freedom to explore. the outdoor games room was a hit with all ages. as competitive as we are there was plenty to keep us busy. The children loved the animals in the stables, especially the baby goats.
we were contacted by the owners during our stay to ensure we were happy with the accommodation, very friendly and very helpful and was able to put us in the right direction of a good pub lunch.
thank you again Andy and Emma. I would highly recommend this property and will definitely return next year.
I feel the need to submit this having seen the response to my sister's very considered and rather generous review from our family stay. I have now had 2 previous reviews declined so will choose my wording carefully.
My wife and I arrived first and spent the rest of the day engaged in various tasks (our kids had to occupy themselves) so my parents could arrive to something bearable:
1.starting to deal with serious fly infestations, this involving literally hundreds of dead and alive flies falling on my head while opening a velux window
2. cleaning a filthy kitchen, locating hoovers etc etc
3. changing light bulbs
4. finding and operating the heating and hot water with no instructions at all
5. lighting a fire as the house was very cold as had been unoccupied with no heat on presumably.
It is true that the man came later that day and he did arrange for cleaners the next day to defrost filthy and chronically over frozen freezers and clean an oven that was grim too It is true a free meal was offered, though in comparison to the cost of the week this was small. My family are very loathe to leave negative feedback or cause difficulties but I believe it is proper that a genuine review is left given the feedback to my sisters entry. I would never have accepted the offer of the email but as mentioned other family members were keen to avoid any difficulties.
I have not been able to leave a star rating but it would certainly be a 2 at most. The issues we experienced have in part been flagged up in previous ratings- lack of dining space, problems with showers, lightbulbs to be replaced. it is for the reader of this review to make up their own mind as to what that might signify. I suspect there will be an owner response to this post but would like to point out I have not left such feed back before, have no vested interest, am not pursuing any repayment but simply wish a truthful account to be allowed to be posted. I have lived, worked, and travelled to many many places around the world and this experience was disappointing.
We booked this lovely old farmhouse for a recent family reunion. It is a quiet and pleasant location and the accommodation is flexible for large groups with several entertaining spaces.
Unfortunately it was dirty on arrival, in particular the kitchen including the oven and the fridges. It was not possible to close the freezer due to ice. There was also an infestation of flies on the top floor.
The owners were very apologetic and one visited the property and arranged for cleaners the following day. They indicated they hadn't had any similar issues previously however there was fly spray in the house suggesting this may have been a problem before. To be fair the owners did pay for a meal out to compensate us for the inconvenience.
The house could also be improved by proving a dining space where everyone can eat together. Neither the current dining room or kitchen table allow for this.
This could be a fantastic property as whilst it's in a rural area it's also close to a village and only 15 minutes from Ludlow. The children loved the play barn and the nearby animals and the house has a really charm. Unfortunately the house is a little run down and the showers are a bit hit and miss with regards to pressure and temperature.
While not necessarily advising against going we would advise being very clear about what to expect in terms of cleaning and general welcome e.g. advice about the heating works etc.
This house was perfect for a our large group. Bedrooms all large with good bathroom facilities. Loved options of different lounges for group to split up as needed. Outside space is amazing, lots of patios and chairs and the climbing frame was a big hit was the toddlers. The barn was a useful retreat in the rain.
Enough things to do in local location to keep us all entertained. Could do with enough wine glasses for the number of people it sleeps would be main advice for change, and more obviously place for keys for patios doors/window etc
50th birthday party with 10 adults, 5 children and 5 dogs. The house was perfect for this family celebration with rooms plenty big enough for us all to get together but lots of other cosy rooms to have a quiet moment. The bedrooms were all large with comfy beds. The children adored the animals and play equipment while the dogs were in seventh heaven in the lovely garden. The best bit though is the location which is perfect for stepping out of the door for fantastic walks or going for a short ride to Ludlow, Much Wenlock, Church Stretton etc.
Family of 15 ranging from 14 months to 67 years. The accommodation is outstanding. Each and every room is beautifully decorated with plenty of space. We never felt on top of each other. The views from the property are stunning and even looked great on a wet Easter weekend. The children loved the games barn and the stables next door. They were able to pet the goat and rabbit and the lady who looks after the animals couldn't have been more accommodating. Walks from the property are great too. A fantastic place to stay would highly recommend!!
