“Not as good as we expected based on other reviews”

Plus points
Plenty of room
Good location - central for all the places we wanted to visit
Spotted the green woodpecker a few times, plus what seems to be the resident hare.

Minus points
Pigs in nearby building - these are not the free range pigs you see around the area - they are in a shed with no access to outside - I m not a pig expert, but the noises coming from the shed did not seem those of contented pigs - seemed to be stress/fighting noises.
We found this a bit upsetting - plus the noise, whilst less during the night than day time, meant we could not have bedroom windows open during a hot and humid spell.
Also a bit smelly.
We know this is a farm, but it would be better if the pigs could be re-located away from the holiday cottages, or even better, given access to outside,
Some areas need cleaning, outside tatty.
Lots of flies - take a fly swat, or rely on the sticky fly paper in the kitchen with a hundred dead bodies on it.
Not deliberately being negative, but this is a truthful account of our experience.

First the blackbirds start in the morning, then the pheasants, then the pigeons, then the pigs. What lovely country sounds! And we could hear them all without getting out of the warm, firm bed. But it we hadn't done that we would have missed the glorious ghostly blackthorn blossom and the cowslips, primroses and stitchwort on the banks. All mod cons too. We particularly made use of the washing machine and WiFi.

What absolutely wonderful sounds to rise to in the morning, a real country dawn chorus! Even better is to be able to enjoy them from the comfort of the lovely warm bed! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your break at The Bothy and thank you for taking the time to share your experience there with us, we hope that you return very soon.
