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 had a midweek stay at Dannah farm as wanted something special for a quiet weekend away. We stayed in the studio hideaway as wanted to use the hot tub. The room itself was a bit small but it did create an intimate secluded feel which we were after. The hot tub was amazing. It was great to sit in the hot tub with a glass of wine after a good days walking in the local countryside. There was a selection of DVDs to choose from in the room too
The breakfast was fantastic, loads of choice & locally sourced produce. We also tried the supper platter one evening which was superb. A wide range of meats, salad & cheeses which tasted great after a day out walking.
The owners were really friendly & made us feel very welcome.
Yes, this is more expensive than your average B&B but I think that B&Bs are not that cheap these days so its worth paying the extra to get a better standard of B&B.
This B&B is perfect if you want a totally relaxing few days away from it all.
