We have been offering accommodation to guests since 1986 – a lifetime – and the hardest lesson we have had to learn is that it is simply not possible to please everyone all the time, or indeed have a fully functioning Dannah Farm perfect at all times on every occasion. Most of our wonderful guests know this and generously forgive our lapses! We really, genuinely, do try our very best to please and hopefully are able to give our guests a wonderful stay with memories to cherish.
Reviews are both terrific and terrifying at the same time! It’s a heart stopping moment when we see a new review has been published – did they like us – were we helpful/friendly/in the middle of a domestic???? Then - having made the decision to put reviews on our own website – should we just put on the good ones – include the not so good – banish the awful?? The decision is taken – we will go for “the good, the bad and the ugly” and let our guests – past, present and future decide for themselves!!!!
We have decided not to reply to individual reviews, believing it could be perceived as confrontational, of course we read them all, and really do welcome your thoughts, taking notice of all the points you raise – good and bad! (For some of the issues which raise their head from time to time, e.g., charges for corkage an explanation can be found on our FAQ's page
And finally, a heartfelt thank you to those who take the time and trouble to tell us what a lovely time they had, along with a genuine apology to those for whom the experience was not all they would have hoped for.
We stayed in the Studio Hideaway - having booked 2 nights as a treat. On arrival we were welcomed very warmly, shown around and then brought tea, coffee and cake in our room. The room was lovely - beautifully and quirkily decorated and very comfortably furnished. I actually thought that it looked bigger than it did in the photos on the website, and much prettier in reality. The hot tub was amazing - very relaxing indeed! Our private terrace was lovely and peaceful and we were entertained by a family of wrens who seemed to have a nest in the greenery.
Breakfast was, quite simply, the best breakfast I have ever tasted! On our second night we had the supper platter and it took our breath away, a feast for the eyes as well as a delicious supper that would probably have fed four of us, let alone two.
We took one of the recommended walks and enjoyed the beautiful countryside. Overall, a wonderful stay. Dannah Farm has a really lovely family atmosphere, looks beautiful and is extremely luxurious. Highly recommended and we will be returning (though we'll have to save first!). Thank you.
