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.

What our guests have to say >>

friendly personal service as demonstrated by greeting and tea with very moist delicious ginger cake - a lovely extra that makes a stay more special. The room was chilly - we had the garden rooms - until just after 6pm when the heating came on.
Lots and lots of information on short walks, long walks, every walk, every local visit etc with copies to take out with you. SO useful and the walks are lovely - we did two.
More info on local restaurants sent to us before our visit so we were able to book in advance. We tried the Saracens Head in Shirley and La Mistral in Wickworth.
Breakfasts were large and tasty.
