“Excellent accomodation for large family with children”
Having stayed for a week with family including 4 children we had a great stay. Facilities very good especially number of bathrooms. Very friendly welcome from owners. Excellent location for coast (esp. Lyme Regis) and other tourist attractions.
We stayed at the Granary for New Years Eve 2012 and found it to be lovely and great value. The cottage was spacious but also cosy and well-equipped for 10 people - the log fire was gorgeous! The bedrooms were large and each had an ensuite, which we loved. The communal areas were spacious and well-maintained and the surrounding area was very picturesque. There are some great walks and a lovely pub very close by. Mike the owner was very friendly and couldn't do enough to help - although there was a Wifi issue when we first arrived it was rectified from the first day and the Wifi connection was great after that. Similarly there were two fridges at the property but we actually found it helpful to have extra fridge space. A previous reviewer mentioned something about the owner's dog fouling outide the cottage, but we didn't notice anything like that in the week that we stayed - it was a working farm with dogs and other animals (including a gorgeous shetland pony) in close vicinity, which we thought added to the charm. All in all we had a fab stay and would highly recommend the property - we will definitely be coming back!
“Did not meet expectations”
The position of The Granary is lovely and the bedrooms and bathrooms are good. We did encounter a number of problems which could so easily have been avoided had the owners checked out the property before our arrival. The fridge/freezer was our biggest concern because the fridge temperature was not low enough and as we were staying at the property over Christmas this was a major problem. The owner was aware and a replacement was delivered on the second day of our stay but as it was the built-in variety we were faced with the choice of either having the upheaval of it being fitted or having it just standing in the lounge. we opted for the latter as this way we had one good fridge for our meat and goods that required proper chilling and the other for other goods requiring chilling. This problem with the fridge was caused by the layout of the kitchen. The built-in oven was situated next to the built-in fridge/freezer and as the oven door seal was well and truly perished the heat from the oven had damaged the fridge seal. Not all the cooking settings on the oven worked so all in all cooking the Christmas turkey was a challenge. The kitchen was a good size but when 10 people are staying at Christmas the appliances are inadequate. There was only one oven and hob and an average size fridge/freezer which although is probably adequate for a summer stay, it isn't for a Christmas stay when all meals need to be prepared and cooked and it isn't possible to shop daily for supplies. Fortunately we took our hostess trolley with us which helped us to overcome the cooking limitations. The property was described as having free wifi which is always important for the younger generation. so, as well as the fridge/freezer sudden breakdown we were informed that the wifi had broken the day before our arrival. An annoying problem was the owner's dogs fouling the area where we parked our cars so care had to be taken whenever we left the building. This was particularly annoying when there were signs up asking guests to clear up after their dogs! Another annoyance was the size and positioning of the TV. It was tucked in a corner in a recess so only 3 or 4 people could see it at any one time. This wasn't overly important to us because we play games at Christmas time but 10 people sharing during a wet spell would find this very irritating. The lounge furniture was tired and worn and the carpets were in need of a good clean. We did enjoy our stay but that was because we are people who make the best of any situation we find ourselves in.
Owner's reply: So sorry she was unlucky with her stay. Mechanical breakdowns happen at any time, so the fridge and WiFi router went at the same time. We attended to her needs whenever they arose. A new fridge was delivered to them on day 2, but they did not want it fully fitted, even though it would have taken 30-45 mins. Their observation about the seal on the fridge was unfounded as it had run out of gas and was 14 years old. The WiFi router went down days before Xmas, so a replacement was not obtainable, but they could pick up a weak signal from a bedroom. We have had 14 Xmas stays over the years and no one has complained about the Kitchen setup or equipment. The TV has been in the same place for 14 years, and no one has complained or commented. It is perfectly viewable from most angles of the room. The carpets are cleaned once or twice a year, and next week (4th Feb) they are having a seeing to. A dog fouling is sad, she only needed to tell us and we would have removed it. Our 13 year old dog is disabled with 3 legs and sometimes has accidents (rarely) when he fails on his only hind leg. Glad to hear the party actually DID enjoy their stay as mentioned in the last paragraph despite the apparent dilemma they encountered The party who had the following week painted a VERY different story (see write up) and had a WHALE of a time !! - BRAVO !!
“Excellent accomodation for family break”
The location was beautiful and peaceful.The open space gives wonderful opportunity to walk and explore the countyside. The accomodation was spacious for a large family with both older members and young children. The Granary has a well equipped kitchen and is spotlessly clean throughout. The outside space was very secure for small children allowing them to play outdoors safely. The log burner in the living room is real delight during the cold evenings.
