A 70th celebration in style! 4.2/5
This lovely characterful house and grounds were just perfect for us - a group of old friends celebrating 70th birthdays - playing snooker, croquet & boules on the lawns, sundowners by the fire pit with gorgeous views and bbqs and dinners all seated round the outside table or at the big wooden table in the bright kitchen/conservatory. We were blessed with sunny days so it was a shame the pool was out of use but maybe another time... The rooms were tastefully furnished and had interesting decorative paintings and objects. Kitchen appliances & equipment were generally good and the welcome basket was a very nice touch. Two suggestions - we think the photos & info provided don't do sufficient justice to the property we were surprised that there was only one (not very good) hairdryer amongst 4 bedrooms

Family celebration of Grandpa's 70th birthday. 4.5/5
Long weekend with 3 generations who all kept fully entertained. Very comfortable. We took the Figgy as well to accommodate all 10 in comfort due to varying ages of children 2-11. But older kids could easily share the 4 bed room and thus get all 10 into the Farmhouse in comfort.

We had a great time! 4.8/5
We had an a amazing stay. Beautiful home with amazing swimming pool and tennis court l. I found the service team really helpful. I had one small criticism regarding the state of the garden furniture, one of the chairs broke when we sat in it and I think it could do with updating. Lot of them are in a state of repair. We will definitely be booking again. Thanks for making my 40th so special x

An enjoyable family holiday 4.5/5
As a family who usually holiday abroad we were looking for a property with a pool and plenty of space for 8 adults plus one infant, Dormestone Farm fitted the bill well. We were fortunate with the weather and were able to swim in the pool each day. We also enjoyed using the tennis court and billiard table. There is plenty of indoor and outdoor space with comfortable accommodation. One of our party had to work from home during the stay and the self contained accommodation at The Figgy provided a good quiet space for him. It was lovely to sit around the fire pit with a sundowner whilst enjoying glorious views. We enjoyed being able to walk to a pub. Just a few things which we would highlight that could enhance the experience further. Firstly since we could only get a Monday to Friday booking we found the 5pm check in and 9am checkout shortened the break considerably only really giving us 3 days in the property Changing times to 3pm and 11am would have been more guest friendly. The local pub (Bowl Inn ) does a very good breakfast which we took advantage of on our last morning. Food took much longer than expected to cook in the main oven it seems the door seal might be the culprit as a lot of steam escaped despite the door being properly closed. (I have a similar rangemaster at home which is much more efficient.) The dustbins were not emptied despite our putting them out on the designated night. Overall however we had an enjoyable family holiday
