Lovely house in quiet surroundings
The situation of the house was perfect, surrounded by fields and with lovely views and sunsets from the back porch. It was also very comfortable and quiet. There are a couple of reasons why I didn't rate it with 5 stars. There weren't enough cereal bowls for potentially 6 guests - only 4 cereal bowls and 4 mugs. It would take very little time and expense to equip the kitchen more extensively. Also the kettle which was really bad and corroded and needed replacing. The handle fell apart whilst pouring a cup of tea and nearly caused a scalding accident and a washer from the handle was discovered at the bottom of a cup and luckily wasn't drunk. There was only one bedside light in the downstairs bedroom and so we borrowed one from upstairs. We were very confused by the downstairs bed and the way it had been made up. The mattress was very soft and squashy and we discovered a couple of days later that the warm feather quilt (which surely should have been on top of us and not underneath) had been put on the mattress beneath the bottom sheet?!!! and on top of the bed was only a very thin blanket which wasn't nearly warm enough for the chilly nights. I'd love to know why. We took a quilt from one of the upstairs beds to use over the top of us to keep warm. We ate in The Stacked Kitchen in Sharon and enjoyed a very tasty and reasonably cheap meal. Ashley, the owner was very friendly and helpful and the service was good. The area around Sharon is beautiful.
