Joanna Hughes review 27 Oct 2008
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
The hospitality was very warm and welcoming - and the rooms and house were delightful. Lots of lovely touches - organic food and organic bath products and a bar of chocolate from Oxfam. Lovely and warm.
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
Get clear instructions to find the place - a complicated route of back country lanes and we never seemed to find the same way twice.
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
Four stars - as I had mentioned I am a vegetarian beforehand I would have preferred a wider choice for breakfast - not just minus the sausage and bacon. The cereals and organic juices and coffee were lovely though.
Read the operator's response here:
I'm so sorry my guest was not aware of the choice of vegetarian options I offer: eggs in all forms, vegetarian sausages, local cheese (and even pancakes if ordered the night before). I understood her to say she would like the same cooked breakfast as her friend, but without the meat! We have many guests who follow differing diets and do our best to provide them with a delicious breakfast. It always includes cooked fruit, fresh fruit salad, nuts and seeds, and home made bread, in addition to the cooked breakfast, and all ingredients are organic and/or locally produced wherever possible.
