Guest Book

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.


“Bit of tranquil amidst the madness”

What our guests have to say >>

I stayed at Dannah for an impromptu romantic evening away with the fiance. From the outside it's nothing to write home about, the interior was clean and comfortable and homely. We stayed in the studio hideaway with the hot tub, it's very small with not much room to move around in, but ever so cosy. The views are okay but nothing to write home about. The hot tub was clean and the room was very well equipped. The staff are delightful, efficient, polite and really there to give good service. There's an honesty bar in the main lounge of the house, which restored my faith in mankind. You can't hear a pin drop at Dannah.... that's why we went. The air is fresh! We had breakfast in the restaurant in the morning - those guys know how to do the full English, it was nothing less than spectacular. The hot chocolate was also just dreamy. I think the reviews of this place make it sounds slightly better than it actually is but then potentially i might be quite hard to please. If you like 5* environments, it's not for you. If you like cosy and homely then this will definitely be your cup of tea. All in all its quite a good effort from someone who converted their old stables into a B&B. It's a nice evening away but probably wouldn't go back again - Enjoy!
