The property is set in a very quiet and peaceful location with beautiful gardens. The owner clearly spends time and effort on the grounds however, we were disappointed by the lack of privacy in our room, it being directly adjacent to the breakfast room with all the accompanying intrusive noise.We were warned the previous evening by the proprietor that this was likely altho we did not realise it would be quite so loud. We were informed breakfast would be between 8-9am but the noise started at 7.30 am with no respite. When we made our concerns known to the owner she had the temerity to ask what time we retired and perhaps we might have 'gone to bed' earlier. To add injury to insult we were informed that perhaps it might have been better had we risen earlier. We were offered a refund for our second night which we accepted but all costs were deducted. When we asked about any warning to guests re the noise, the proprietor informed us that this issue was highlighted on the web site. We have been unable to find any trace of this notification.

The only disappointing stay we had in the 17 nights we were in the country. This property could be amazing with a little polishing and care. Currently very tired both inside and outside. Not at all like the photos and definitely not worth what we paid for it. We stayed in other more pricy areas of the country paying much less for much nicer properties which showed pride of ownership which this did not. Dusty, stained carpets, gardens required major attention. Bathrooms very basic, with rough old towels. Sheets had seen better days. Rooms could not be locked when you were not in the room so open to everyone. Only a slider from the inside when you were in room. This was very concerning. A very small safe provided but it’s size was inadequate and having to leave all our personal effects open to not only the property owner but also other guests was a problem. Would not recommend.
