Thank you Wendy for your detailed and thoughtful review. We attempt to advise in our listing (probably too subtly) that this is just a real farm with some rustic spare rooms, and not a hotel. Yes we can certainly improve a few things, and are in the process of so doing. Our lower than typical rates reflect this I believe. Our apologies, but a work in progress!!! In lieu of TV or radio, we instead opted to move with the times and provide very fast free wi-fi for all our guests. Unfortunately the fridge/freezer we presently have in the nearby shed is too old, unreliable and rather too large for the small kitchen area, and the cooking gas is needfully switched on/off only on request, for safety reasons. (A previous guest once left the gas and electric blanket on after leaving! Recipe for disaster!). The kitchen and BBQ area in the main house is the preferred option, and mentioned in our listing. We really enjoyed hosting you, Robyn and Alex. And your two lovely show dogs were well behaved as stated. Our other guests really enjoyed meeting you as well. Here's wishing you well, and please consider us again in your future travels.
