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.
I booked the Red Room at Dannah farm for a last minute overnight stay on the 11th July. The girl I spoke to whilst making the booking (Laura, I believe) was very helpful and friendly.
Dannah Farm is in a great location; we went to Dovedale the next day whiich was not far so it is great to use as a base. We found Dannah Farm easy to find and received a very warm welcome. I had arranged for a bottle of bubbly to be placed in the room and it was with plenty of ice and two glasses which was a great treat.
The room was lovely, clean, well furnished with a fantastic bathroom. I have noticed other comments regarding beds being too soft which I must admit is not a problem with the Red Room. I don't like a soft mattress either so would recommend this room for anyone with reservations.
The breakfast was lovely; we are vegetarian and there was plenty of choice.
I would seriously recommend Dannah Farm to anyone and we will most certainly be returning!
