Lot of improvement required.
Could be cleaner. Although a farm lodge, one would still expect maintenence on external structures for a better upkeeping. For a couple, we were given a room with two single beds joined together with single bedding sheets on each.Wifi signal is also extremely weak to non existent based on where you are placed in the house.
