1/5 Terrible

Very disappointed with attitude of Caroline the property manager who had previously agreed family staying, using an inflatable mattress, as we had our Daughters wedding, and due to covid restrictions had too rebook several times. Previously booked with home and away. We also booked another flat along from the cottage to provide more room for us all. After receiving an intoxicated phonecall stating that teenagers were staying in the cottage she proceeded to accuse us of misleading her and threatened to throw us out. I asked for the reason and this could not be answered. We arranged to meet the following day, Caroline had an aggressive nature and implied that we were unsavoury people. I am assuming this was due to us laughing in the garden, which was not at a late hour. 8.30pm. we had not seen the children for some time due to covid and them working full time. We have never been treated this way and will not be returning. The property was left in Prestine condition, as we would always do. We felt that photos were necessary ,to be taken on leaving the property ,should we be accused of any other further wrong doings. We did try to book another property following this outburst but due to being August bank holiday, it sadly was not possible.

5/5 Excellent

Great base
We couldn't have wished for anything better, the property was excellent and very well equipped, the exercise area for our dog was excellent and he loved every minute in there, to the point where he didn't want to leave!! The location was excellent as you have the best of both worlds, in the middle of nowhere but near to everywhere. Communication with Caroline was great. Would highly recommend this property.

5/5 Excellent

All as advertised.
Excellent for all countryside fans. Very peaceful place. Well equipped, lovely cottage. Good contact with the owner.

5/5 Excellent

The location is stunning, and the cottage was beautiful and very clean when we arrived. It was well equipped and had everything we needed. Our dogs very much enjoyed the facilities including the field, which was totally enclosed and safe to leave them to burn off some energy We would highly recommend this property for dog owners or non dog owners alike, and are looking forward to returning

5/5 Excellent

Quiet location
April 2021- centrally located for days out for all compass points. The accommodation was well equipped: it had all that we needed. Would happily return.
