Notes on accommodation: The Lodge is a great place for a family with lots of outside space. The heating is electric and there are thermostats on every radiator. All heating is included. Hawthorn Cottage (our other property which sleeps three in one bedroom) is cosy and romantic, and also ideal for a couple with a young child. Again the heating is electric and there is a wood burner with all logs etc provided. Both properties are private and peaceful with only the noise of the horses, sheep and pigs to wake you up in the morning. Outside: Stank Farm has 22 acres of pasture land with horses and sheep grazing. There is direct access to countryside walks with a public footpath passing through the land. Guests are welcome to wander around the farm and help with feeding. Both properties have private outdoor space with table and chairs and parking. The Lodge has a veranda area with stunning views of the surrounding countryside.

shame about the lack of interest

  • 2 of 5

Lovely location, nice rental. Unfortunately, because the heating system was on a timer. This meant that on our arrival, the heating didn't kick in until 4pm,took at least another hour for the place to warm up. Came back from a trip out for the day, again had to wait for the timered heat to kick in. Contacted the owner to say that this wasn't working for us in terms of when the heating came on. Only to be told " we're out on a walk at the moment, followed by instructions on how to make sure that the heating would come on. This was the only offer of help that we received. There was no follow up call or knock on the door to see if we were OK. Went home a day early as 3 of our party felt ill due to being cold. The attitude from the owners was disinterested to say the least.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Lodge! Beautiful surroundings!

  • 5 of 5

Cannot fault our stay at all. We hadn't realised that we needed to bring our own towels and the owners were very accommodating and lent us some of their own. The very attentive cats on the farm were an added bonus! 5 stars all round!
