"Clean, well placed to travel to a number of places and interesting"
The property was a well built and maintained barn conversion. We were greeted on our arrival by the owners who took time to explain how things worked and showed us a book which included instructions for everything. Beds were comfortable and everything you would need for the stay was provided. Property was very clean and welcoming.
Thank you for your kind review

"Warm welcome, lovely converted outbuildings but lack of surface/cupboard space for our clothes, food, toiletries etc"
We spent a very enjoyable week @ The Mistal. We arrived to a warm welcome from the owners & the place was immaculately clean. On attempting to unpack our clothes, we found the drawers in the bedroom locked & the wardrobe full. There was no bedside unit or lamp in either bedroom. Every available surface was covered with teddies etc. In the absence of wardrobe/drawer space, we all ended up having to stack our clothes on the floor. My parents in law had the larger bedroom. Sadly, the window opens on to the sitting room rather the outside, so they found it hot over night. Having cleared the owners' toiletries & ornaments from the bathroom, we were able to put our toiletry bags down. The kitchen cupboards & shelves were similarly bursting at the seams. We stacked food items in boxes on the kitchen floor. The gas-fired range in the kitchen, whilst lovely in the winter, I'm sure, meant cooking/preparing food in the summer was unpleasantly hot. Ornaments, Buddhas etc covered every surface throughout the place. Whilst we felt it was attractively furnished and very homely, we would have looked for less of the owners' things & more space for those renting it, at least for clothing & food items to be stored. On reporting a fault with the toilet-flush, the owners sorted it instantly. The two sitting rooms & spacious dining room were perfect. The larger sitting room was gorgeous - full of character, comfortable & the surround sound was awesome. We spent a v enjoyable evening watching the DVD of 'Les Miserables'. Whilst we felt it was a lovely home, we felt due to the amount of the owners' possessions filling storage/surface areas, we would be hesitant to recommend it for rental, I'm afraid.
Thank you for your review which is really appreciated
* Although there where three wardrobes we where not informed by yourself that you required more space you should have said.
* Sorry we put extra towels in drawers just in case you required more which we always do. You only needed to removed them if you wanted to use drawer space
* The storage room is for hanging coats and storing shoes which I did point out to you on arrival and you was happy with
* The toiletries in the bathroom I explained where for your use sorry if you did not know this you should have said
* The kitchen is a farmhouse style kitchen as advertised and apart from the fridge/freezer the storage is under counter and shelves for storage a bit different I know from your conventional kitchen which makes it unique
* We like the house to feel homely instead of it just having blank walls as it holds a lot of history, we treat all our visitors as friends and want them to enjoy the surroundings
My contact details are always left in the property if anyone requires any anything. I never received a call other than the toilet flush which we rectified instantly sorry you did not let me know of other issues which could have been easily rectified.
We like our guests to have an enjoyable stay.

"A Hidden Gem"
We stayed at the Mistal to celebrate my birthday a week ago. It was the perfect place for myself and my sisters to all get together for a pamper night. The location is tranquil and private and we sat out in the Courtyard enjoying the sunshine. This property is cosy, beautiful and filled with character. Our favorite room being the large annex room accompanied by a large fridge cooler. We met Diane who made us feel very welcome and was kind enough to leave us some complimentary chocolates!. We all hope to stay at The Mistal again soon, we didn't want to leave. It truly is a hidden gem!.
Lovely to meet all of you and I do hope to see you all again
