    We had a lovely holiday here, there is everything you need to make you feel at home. Ian and Alison are lovely people and really made us feel welcome. The cream tea on arrival was a lovely gesture and delicious, as were the fresh eggs and milk. The farmhouse is nice and private, has it's own gated driveway. It was only a short walk to the field to exercise our 2 dogs, a lovely enclosed area. The house is spacious and cosy and we really felt at home. There is a big kitchen with full size American fridge freezer, range cooker and good range of utensils etc. A great central location to access both coasts.

    We had a lovely week at Mena Farm. The cottage is set out in the country adjoining the Mena camp site. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and we were able to take in the scenery whilst exercising the dogs. We were a family of 6 4 adults and two children aged 9 & 5. They loved the outdoor play area and had hours of fun playing. The facilities in the cottage are good, however the only negative was the bathroom, more the shower. Unfortunately the shower spray was very poor so much so that the spray was more of a trickle! The bathroom itself is nice a spacious with a slipper bath. We did try to use the bath but it took forever to fill up...we gave up and it also used all the hot water. So in essence looked nice but not really useful. As a minimum the shower needs to be replaced. The drive area to the house was private and secure. It was lovely to be able to sit outside and enjoy the sun. The yard area would benefit from a patio set or a table to go with the chairs already provided. (there was a wooden picnic table but the bench was very narrow and uncomfortable to sit on for any length of time) The kitchen facilities are great, it was easy to cook for the family rather than spending lots of money eating out. We did use the wood burner one evening and although you have to pay for the wood as this is an added extra it soon warmed the house up and made it cosy. Everyone was very friendly, helpful and welcoming. It was an ideal central location and I would stay again. In fact we didn't want to come home.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Many thanks for your review. It was lovely to meet you all, and to see the children making the most of the facilities here. We’re very glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Mena overall. We are disappointed though that you didn’t mention any of the problems you detail in your review whilst you were here. It’s a little frustrating from our side, knowing that we could have resolved those issues for you during your stay. For example, there isn’t a limit to hot water, as it is instant and continuous, so we could have adjusted the water pressure for you. Also, we provide plenty of free firewood for guests to use, it is only the bags of logs that you need to pay for. We’re happy though that these issues wouldn’t deter you from returning to Mena, and we’d love to see you all again in the future. Thanks again and all the very best.
