Having recently stayed at Hollyhock cottage (one of the clematis cottages with the annex, throughout all our dealings with Richard and Kaye, we were very impressed with the friendlyness and quality of communication throughout. This continued into when we visited. Both Richard and Kaye were very warm, welcoming and around in case we needed anything, but not intrusive at all.
The cottages themselves have incredibly well kept gardens and outdoor space, and the properties are in an outstanding condition. While the ceilings upstairs are a bit low, this is part of the traditional stylings of the building, and wasn't an issue.
The kitchen has what you need - plenty of glasses, mugs, plates and cuttlery, as well as also having a dishwasher which was a very nice addition. There was a large Fridge-Freezer too.
When staying, I heavily reccomend trying the honey from the beehives onsite.
This is definitely where we will be trying to book next time we visit Stamford.
