A bad review before visiting Harebeck cottage had us worried. Following the review - Any behind the scenes dust? Yes. Was it filthy? NO!! Smells? Occasionally, it's an old farm house on a working farm. Reasons for us to leave early and spoil our children's holiday? None. The connecting doors were locked from our side, no safety concerns. We had 7 nRead moreights, warm and cosy. Lovely, comfortable, clean beds. Owners are amazing, we had a farm tour, fed the lambs and saw a lamb born. Amazing stay!!! Hide

We are suspicious as to whether the positive reviews are fake. The property has a series of adjoining doors, one of which is directly next to the bedroom that is set up for children. My husband ended up sleeping on one of the beds in that bedroom as we felt uncomfortable leaving them alone.

Beautiful cottage. Very well equipped kitchen and everything you could need in the property. Added extras are a lovely addition, from arrival gifts to dog beds. DVDs board games books are also available. Brilliant location and lovely hosts who are happy to help with anything. Please do take note though, the steps to upstairs are very steep.

So when we first arrived there was a dishwasher full of items, the sides were all dirty (tea and coffee stains) massive chunk of the ceiling missing where it's had a leak, stairs are deadly! NO PRIVACY!!! The owner can walk into the cottage at any point as the bedroom is right next to the door that is controlled by them. So many faults. The dog ...Read more It tried attacking my children and my dog and myself on more than 1 occasion. 7.5 hours travel for 1 night. Still waiting a refund. STAY AWAY!!!! Hide

Cathryn was welcoming, accommodating & very friendly. Guests should be aware that the stairs are on a par with those on a military ship, very steep and narrow.
