Ollivers Farm is a quirky little place and I find it hard to review as it had its pluses and minuses. I can see how some of the other reviewers found the owner a little unwelcoming, but we couldn't grumble. She left a wedding early to greet us and was amicable the following morning when serving breakfast. We were guests at a wedding at The White Hart, which although only a mile away, was not easy to walk to as it's all along country roads so just be aware of that before you stay. I was absolutely dreading the thought of a shared bathroom but I think there is more than one bathroom between the amount of rooms. We were lucky because our room was next to a bathroom and the guest next door to us didn't show up, but I can imagine this being problematic if you were in a rush and there was full occupancy. The room was clean to the extent that the bedding was fresh, floor hoovered and we had a comfortable sleep. However, the properly is extremely old and was full of cobwebs, we even got greeted by a spider the size of my hand the following morning. Breakfast was tasty but really was missing the full English option. Cooked breakfast was bacon, fried slice, egg and tomato. We would have loved sausages and mushrooms. There was a lovely selection of homemade jams which were so tasty and cereal as well. The option to top up juice would have been welcomed. Overall, not a bad stay. But I don't think it was worth the £85 we paid. However, we had little choice in the area.
