Guestbook comments from the owner

Our extended family - all three generations of it- absolutely loved The Old Famrhouse. It was pretty cold when we got there so we had the heaters running most evenings, but the wood burner in the living room was lovely (and we didn't have to pay extra like some other properties we looked at). The games room got plenty of use, as did the bar and pool table (which is bigger than the one pictured). The hot tub was ready when we got there.



The owners - Phil and Jenny are both lovely, friendly and approachable. They explained how to use everything and gave us lots of advice before and during our stay regarding shopping (ie. Everything is closed on sundays), days out etc. There was plenty of space for the ten of us without it feeling too big, and I imagine it would be fine with twice as many.



All rooms are en-suite which was great, and we had no problems with plumbing (such as a previous reviewer had). We had a couple of powercuts when we had lots of electric heaters running at the same time as the washing machine, but the owners sorted it out straight away.

Wifi was only available in the games room, which is locked at night so as not to disturb anyone, however this was not a problem for us. (I had no problem using my mobile network out there.) Though the owners' accomodation was above the games room and next to some of our rooms, the walls are plenty thick enough and the close proximity did not affect our privacy.



Due to nature of the house, the stairs leading up to some of the bedrooms were quite steep and narrow, and one set wasn't particularly even. This didn't cause us too many problems, however they might be more difficult for those with mobility problems or children. The trick is to take them slowly and not be holding two suitcases!

I treated myself to a massage and that too was lovely, as well as a fraction of the price I'd pay back home!



This house was fantastic value for money, and it is easy to get to the most popular places to visit from Mohon. I would strongly recommend this house to friends and family!

Idéal pour grande réunion amis & famille !

  • 4 of 5

La maison est très agréable, impeccablement propre, très bien équipée et correspond parfaitement aux photos du site. Le jardin avec sa très grande terasse, sa piscine et son jacuzzi, est superbe.

Toutefois, quelques informations ne sont pas mentionnées sur l'annonce : l'accès à la piscine et au jacuzzi est restreint à des horaires ( de 9h à 21h ) et l'accès à la salle de jeu également ( 9h à 22h30 ). Autre point important, les propriétaires habitent sur place dans un appartement aménagé au sein de la maison (avec son accès privatif). Du coup, cela peut surpendre au réveil de voir les propriétaires vérifier l'état des installations dans le jardin.

En résumé, location très bien & très confortable mais on aurait aimé avoir toutes les informations avant d'arriver.
