"Management Response"
28 Apr 2018
By Debbie Loots
"Our stay was sadly not a pleasant one. We booked the dam side chalet as we were attending a wedding in the vicinity. The chalet is well sized and next to a lovely little dam but the cleanliness was not good. It needs an upgrade of furniture. The first night we found the showers to be dirty & encrusted with mound and slime. The main bedroom had fish moth crawling all over. When we went to bed that night we found the previous guests bed socks still in the bed and realized the bedding had not been changed since that. The cleaning staff the following day were quite rude following our complaint to management.On the positive side the owner/management took full ownership of the problem and on the Saturday morning sent in a team to thoroughly clean and fog the cottage while we were out. Ryan himself went down and checked himself that everything was in order. When we checked out Ryan refused to take the balance of our payment and refunded us our deposit as an apology - thank you Ryan.The breakfast at the main lodge was delicious and well presented and the chef was so pleasant."

"we had 5 wonderful days at the Dam Cottage at The Farside Farm. We found the cottage to be so much more than we expected and was well equipped and comfortable. We loved the quietness of its location and the stunning views. The cows were a wonderful addition - coming and eating the grass in front of our patio each evening. The cottage was perfect and beautifully decorated - did not want to leave! Wonderful staff too. The only down side was that the main bedroom had a double bed and my husband and I found it a little small - but that is really our problem, not the venues!! Will definitely go back. oh, also very central to meandering!!"

"We attended a wedding in the Midlands and booked Farside as our accommodation. We were welcomed by a very friendly Abel, the chef, and the excited dogs. Our room was cosy and comfortable, and the breakfast was exquisite. We did our own thing but at all times felt welcome and at home. Location was perfect for us, close to highway but quiet and peaceful. Dominique was very friendly and helpful - we would really recommend this B&B to friends."

"What a beautiful place! We stayed at the Farmside Farm for one night on our way to the South Coast. We stayed in the Dam self-catering cottage. It is a beautiful place, well equipped and looked after, and we will most definitely visit again."
