    “We had a lovely weekend at Home Farm and luckily the weather allowed full use of the grounds and tennis court.”

    We also went on two pretty walks straight from the house. There was a very generous welcome pack and the only tiny problem was that I feel that as the house is fairly expensive more tea towels could have been included. Also a second large saucepan would have made catering for a large group easier.

    Thank you for providing us with this feedback. We are glad you enjoyed the property and made the most of the grounds. We appreciate your comments about tea towels and an extra saucepan, and will make sure the property is equipped with these for future guests. We hope you plan on returning in the future.
