    We enjoyed our short break immensely and would certainly recommend it to others. The only criticism; especially for this early in the year, mid March; would be the lack of warmth. The two Economy 7 radiators are far from adequate during the colder days.

    Great location next to the Reservoir. The property is obviously well used and this is now showing where the maintenance is now required

    Cosy and comfortable with lovely furnishings and decor. Just what we expected for the price. Apples from the garden an added bonus! Superb.

    We felt that the cottage was disappointing when çompared to other we have stayed in for a similar price. The external views on on the net gave a false impression as grass in front of the cottage has been replaced by a very high fence, and the hedge has now grown to eight foot tall. Add the very tall beech trees and the whole area is quite dark and clostrophobic. We had our two dogs with us but the instructions stated that they must be on a lead outside the cottage, hardly the most dog friendly. Inside the cottage there were several problems that we have discovered are long standing, such as taps that have to be twisted hard to stop them running, bedroom door that doesn't shut, bathroom extractor fan that didn't work, a rediculously high bed (why it had three mattresses is beyond me) and a moving loo seat. By far the most important fault was that the smoke detector was missing.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; With regard to the grassed area there is indeed a hedge which since the photograph was taken has grown. This hedge was planted to shield the cottages from winds that come from the water. There are areas in the hedge that have been kept low so a good view of the water can still be had. As the name implies, (Copper Beech Cottage) there are beautiful Copper Beech trees next to the cottage, which all have a preservation order on them. The cottage does have ample windows, plus skylights, which maximises the light. With reference to dogs being on leads, my understanding is that from Cottages4You their policy is that dogs should always be on leads in communal areas. I am a dog lover, but not everyone is, and sometimes people feel rather intimated by them. Certainly where the cottage is located there are so many walks for dogs within minutes from the cottage. I was unaware of any issues with the tap and will have it looked at ASAP, plus the toilet seat. The smoke alarm has been taken out of the bedroom, as guests complained that the light on it was a distraction at night. There is another smoke alarm located outside the bedroom. The location of the alarm does pass Health & Safety requirements. The bed is a high bed. Beds do come in different sizes and heights, and like most things it down to personal preference. We do try to accommodate all, and sorry that you didn't find it to your satisfaction. I hope you found the holiday enjoyable and relaxing, and thank you for bringing the above to my attention.
