Difficult to find - and once found if you leave on foot have to walk the long way round the farm to avoid upsetting the owner's daughter and her horses. Make sure your suspension is sound, there is a huge hole and dangerous dip in the turning off the main road - fine if you are driving a land-rover, tough if you have a sports car.
Lovely house, garden and breakfast cannot be faulted. However, I prefer to be left to my own devices and will ask if I need advice/help/assistance - I did start to feel like myself and partner were being treated like teenage children, also was not keen on being engaged in conversation all the time.
Couple were extremely friendly, and very (over) helpful, but it you prefer to just get on with your break unaided this is not the place to stay.
Breakfast advertised as from 7.30am, but when we requested it at this time on the Sunday we were informed it was a bit early! We would have liked an early start, but had to agree on 8.30 in the end (because there were other "horsey" guests staying.
Our closet contained overspill clothing from the family - which I found disconcerting, as had not been informed that this would be the case, and felt the need to be very quiet in the room as it was next door to their living accommodation, "en suite" was in fact next door, and the central heating boiler/immersion heater starts up at 11.30pm and grinds away behind the headboard until the early hours of the morning, heating your brains to boiling point. We now refer to that weekend as the one where we stayed at Wiltshire's Fawlty Towers.
If you like feeling like part of the household then this is the place for you, excellent service, great eccentric owners, and offers of fetching you from the pub........brilliant breakfast and lovely gardens - just not my cup of tea.
