“Great place for a large party, bring what you need for cooking”
Reviewed 29 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The Granary is a really good space for entertaining a large number with enough plates/cutlery/glasses if the other barns are raided for supplies. WiFi was good from some barns and ok from others, but freely available. We used all the barns for our group: the beds/pillows were comfortable, heating was good. However, the walls are very thin so all sounds carry - be warned. The bathrooms were well stocked, but the towels were small.

The kitchens are not well set up for cooking other than simple things, and certainly not for large numbers. Bring your own mixing bowls, wooden spoons, large pots, weighing machines (there is one in each barn but it is so small as to be unusable, sharp large kitchen knives, electric mixer -- I accept that an electric mixer is not a normal appliance to find in a holiday rental.
Our biggest gripe was that the washing machine and tumble dryer are an extra charge @ £3 per time. The machines are old and small. The tumble dryer did not manage one load completely dried. There is no drying space provided. Also we had to fight for time to use it with the cafe which uses it as well for commercial use. The barns are expensive and this should be included.

Management Response
29 Apr 2015
Thank you for your feedback. We are really pleased that you were happy with so many elements of your stay, but are sorry that you found one or two things that could be improved. We are disappointed that you thought the kitchens were not well set up for cooking for a large group. The barns are all well equipped in the kitchens for their individual group sizes, but taking your comments on board we will put larger pots and mixing bowls, scales and more knives into The Granary to make it more convenient for big groups to cook for themselves. We are also in the process of upgrading our laundry facilities for guests staying in the barns. We do make it clear in the terms on booking that there is an additional charge for laundry. The reason we have structured it this way is because it allows us to keep our prices lower in comparison with other big houses, but we will certainly take your comments into consideration to see if there is a better way of operating this system. We really appreciate your fair and considered review- It is through honest and realistic feedback that we learn to improve our services and we are grateful that you have pointed out the things we do well, as well as the things that we can improve on.

My friends and I (23 in total) went to creeksea to stay for a hen weekend. When we arrived the barns exceeded our expectations and the staff were so friendly and helpful. The barns were clean and tidy and beautifully decorated. Everything we could need was available and the cafe on site was a god send after a night out! I am already planning another visit to the barns with my family and will be recommending creeksea to all my friends.

Hired the whole barn complex for over 25 people. Worked brilliantly with a communal area large enough to host everyone to eat at the same time. The area is lovely - great for walking with lovely coffee shops. The barns are beautiful and clean. Highly recommend booking for large gatherings.

“Perfect family get together venue”
Reviewed 2 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Booked to celebrate husbands 50th birthday and chance to have a family get together. Venue was perfect - everyone had their own space but plenty of room to seat 28 of us for a meal in the Granary and a BBQ outside too. Emily was the perfect hostess and could not be more helpful or considerate.

We would definitely recommend and there is every chance we shall do it again in the near future. Home made Indian food made by Aitka from Khush was fantastic too!
