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.
Myself and my wife stayed at dannah's new heather cottage in sleepy kirk ireton this September for our 'minimoon'. Away from the main farm, the cottage is brand new with its own private hot tub, snug rooms and amazingly large, handcrafted 4-poster style bed. You will need a car to get around to restaurants / pubs, but the whole point of this place is to have an amazingly charming hideaway where everything is stress free and all things you could think of are taken care of - and this place gets an A* for everything! You could disappear to this place for 4 nights as we did, sit in front of the cool snug fire In front of the large TV and wish to live there forever! Fantastic hot tub, views and superbly decorated cottage - I heartily recommend anyone looking for a getaway to look no further! Joan and the staff are great (they do not bother you while you stay - which is the point) and breakfast is included if you wish to go to the farm - a must! We will definitely be back!! Thanks for a wonderful break dannah! Jason & Danni x
