We recently stayed at The Granary for a relaxing weekend away with a large group of friends. The property was simply breath-taking and so much more than we expected! Beautiful grounds and amazing features including hot tub and sauna make this an idyllic weekend away! So much attention to detail with board games and speakers provided; and the lake, ponies, reindeer and peacocks add to the perfect countryside feel of the place!
Julie and Brian were fantastic throughout the process keeping us informed and easy to contact by phone or email. Their hospitality has been second to none and even offered to post items back to us which we left behind by mistake. Couldn’t recommend this place or the hosts more highly and will be looking to return and recommend to others – thank you!
A large group of us recently stayed her as part of a hen weekend. The accommodation was so much more than any of us were expecting. The owners were lovely and friendly and made us all feel very welcome. The accommodation was very clean and well presented. The bedrooms all offer en suite facilities which is very helpful when many people are staying. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. The only issue we had was a large number of flies but being located where it is it was not surprising and not worth worrying about.
I booked the Granary and one Yurt for our stay in August 2018. Throughout the whole booking process, Julie was very helpful and fast at replying.
The accommodation itself was very clean and a lovely place to stay. The grounds are beautiful and could not fault it.
Unfortunately we did have a couple of issues whilst here and informed Brian via a note through their door. He came over and was very sarcastic and just tried to blame us for everything. We advised we were not looking to complain or moan, just offer recommendations to assist future guests so they do not experience the same issues as us. He wasn't really interested in anything we had to say and no apology was offered, just tried to blame us for everything.
One of the issues I feel should be highlighted was the Yurt had no towels- I was advised it is in the T&C's that towels were not provided for Yurt guests and suggested I should have managed my booking better. So a note to anyone booking the Yurt- take towels!!! As I'm sure I am not the first to make this mistake.
I would recommend this holiday let however I would suggest anyone who does stay, maintain contact with Julie as she was lovely and very helpful.
Had Brian handled our issues better, I would have allocated this accommodation a 5* rating.
The granary and yurts were the perfect place for a weekend in the country side for our large group of friends. We couldn’t fault the facilities in the house with the added bonus of the hot tubs and games room where we spent most of our time. We would definitely recommend for a relaxing weekend surrounded by beautiful scenery.
