    We spent a long-weekend break at Canon Court. We comprised of 3 generations, the youngest was a baby of 10 months and the eldest was celebrating his 70th birthday. There was ample space for all of us, and we all enjoyed the holiday immensely. Minor criticisms would be lack of some basic kitchen equipment such as scissors, kitchen roll, cling film, kitchen foil, oven gloves and bin liners. And no ‘welcome pack’. Upstairs we were surprised that there were no hair dryers in any of the rooms and storage space was minimal. Also, there was no visitors book.

    We booked Canon Court for a large family get together (three generations including four children aged 10 months to 5 years) and we generally enjoyed our stay. The property was largely as described on the website although there were one or two areas for improvement. It was spacious, clean and peaceful with comfortable beds, sinks in all the bedrooms and generous easy parking which would easily accommodate 10 or more cars! The kitchen was a little small for large parties of people and provided a few challenges over self catered meals. Also there was only one small general waste bin downstairs although the (open) recycling bins in the front porch were emptied daily. Other reviewers have mentioned the issue of dog poo which sadly has yet to be addressed as we were visited several times by a friendly pooch from next door who left his calling card on the adjoining lawn, which unfortunately meant that we were unable to let our grandchildren play outside unsupervised. One other issue was the super-creaky floorboards (and squeaky door handles!) upstairs which made night-time movement a little difficult as we tried not to disturb four sleeping children. Drawer and wardrobe space in the bedrooms was also very limited. All in all though, as long as some of the issues mentioned above are addressed, we would very likely consider staying here again as the property was ideally positioned for accessing numerous attractions within an hour’s drive and was generally good value for a booking in mid-August.

    Overall rating cottage was lovely but no downstairs toilet A lot of cobwebs on lights . Staff cleaned the cottage before they left. Owners dog using the garden as a toilet no one cleaned up the mess, running a few times into the cottage which could have knock someone over.



    out of 10

    We had a lovely week at Canon Court, which was spacious, clean and peaceful. Previous reviews had stated that there was a problem with the garden furniture and with dog mess. We have to report that both these issues had been dealt with. However, we have to agree with a previous comment regarding wardrobe space, which was insufficient for visitors staying a week. The floorboards on the first floor were also very creaky, which was embarrassing to anyone not wanting to wake up others whilst visiting the bathroom during the night. The temperature control on the showers in the two bathrooms need attention, which has been highlighted to the owner so hopefully will be rectified soon. We would have liked the provision of more shade in the garden. Having two young children and adults who prefer shade, the only umbrella was a small one in the centre of the patio table. Also, I’d like to emphasise that this is a working farm! As such, there are early starts with the cows - normally around 4am - and if you are in the bedrooms on the back of the house you will hear them!!! We found the owner very helpful when needed, and amenable to any comments.

    Fantastic few days at canon court farm. This is a spectacular setting with loads of open fields and spaces. Six adults and seven children including 10 month old twins had a wonderful time making family memories. The only negative was the kitchen is a little dated and could have been better equipped



    out of 10

    We had a great stay at Cannon Court Farm. lots of things to do, and found some very nice pubs to eat in. the village was so pretty, and every one said they would like to return.



    out of 10

    Good points, large airy farmhouse situated in a rural setting on a farm, the early morning tractors ( 4am) didn't really bother us too much. Big bed rooms without a bunk bed in sight ( thankfully) as we were a party of 8 adults. Lots of downstairs space. The owners live next door but didn't hassle us at all. Poor points Tiny kitchen with hardly any worktop space for meal prep, we wouldn't use the kitchen table as too accessible for the 2 year old in our party, the broken cutlery draw was inconvenient as the cutlery was stored on the worktop. No baking tins, pizza tins, small pans. No downstairs loo. The configuration of Jack and Jill bathrooms just didn't work for us either. No chest of drawers in any bedroom, only a single wardrobe. Pillows need replacing Lack of suitably positioned plugs in the bedrooms, tricky for hairdrier/straighteners/chargers etc. Showers would totally stop if another shower was in use. Towels provided were rough and several were torn or had holes in. Windows were very dirty Small garden, garden furniture broken ( table was dangerous) The resident spaniel would take a large daily poo in the garden, not great with a 2 year old running about. It's a lovely house but it could be fantastic with a little love and care as it does feel dated and unloved

    out of 10

    Really lovely farm house with very spacious rooms and very reasonably priced. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms all very well furnished. The only improvements could be more applicances in the kitchen and bigger bath towels. The village is a pretty walk, although not a lot there. Would definitely recommend.



    out of 10

    Very good value and space for entertaining a large group. Quiet as on a farm. Beautiful on the outside and well kept on inside. Sherborne is a close drive where there are lots of pubs and shops and there are nice walks around Things which could be improved - there were lack of some basics like kitchen roll / foil / cling film. I appreciate it is an extremely good value cottage but we didn’t expect to bring the kitchen basics which meant we couldn’t cook properly.



    out of 10

    The booking and directions etc was brilliant. The cottage was exactly what we needed for a family get together for an 80th birthday. Rooms and bathroom ratios all worked out fine. Some of the kitchen equipment was a bit dated but functional. Our only slight gripe was when the heating was on it was thermo hot, radiators far too hot to touch and the house too warm, but when the heating went off it soon got really chilly. We never found a thermostat.



    out of 10

    Ideal for a family get together.plenty of space.



    out of 10

    We stayed for 3 nights 7 adults and a 6 year old. All rooms were spacious and comfortable. The house was a little dusty but it is on a working farm so to be expected, could do with some bigger towels but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would defiantly go back!!
