out of 10
We stayed here a few years ago, for two years running, although we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday, we knew it was not perfect, but this did not bother us in the slightest, However, returning this year the track to beer farm was so overgrown it damaged our cars, we even tried cutting the worst brambles back with scissors ourselves! Although the owners have spent money extending the property and the pool house with a sitting room, which is a very nice touch, it's a shame that attention has not been paid to the actual grounds. The field was so overgrown that the dogs could not see where they were going, so was not used much, and the woodland walk was totally unusable as it was so overgrown and full of barbed wire! Extremely dangerous!
The games room was a disappointment as it was so dirty, that hasn't been cleaned for a long time, but we could deal with that, the biggest disappointment was the pool! It was cloudy and to be honest dirty! You could not see your knees let alone your feet!
The car parking area is sharp gravel, which years ago I thought my dogs feet got cut because they were not used to pavement walking, but the dogs with us this year are, and we had to bandage their feet because they were cut to shreds!
The BBQ was not used as it was thick mould, I know guests are supposed to clean this themselves after use, so shame on you!! But it should be checked and cleaned if needed.
We were only at beerfarm for 5 days, and we are not fussy people and do not like complaining, we haven't even touched on the minor issues. We needed that break, and nothing was going to spoil our holiday!!!! Not even a terrific storm with power cut which set off the pool house alarm and no way to switch it off! We laughed and enjoyed, what else can you do?!
Then to add insult to injury I had to fight for my security deposit!
Would we recommend Beer farm? No, major maintenance is needed. Not worth the money. Such a shame as it has so much potential.
