    Overall the cottage was very well appointed. Quite quirky with its 3 floors. Big safe garden with gates which could be closed for safety of the dogs. Could have done with some more clear instructions on when and where to recycle and what days to put the bin(s) out. There was contradictory info in the cottage guidance book on this. A few light bulbs were out which we left a note about and it was disappointing with 7 of us in the property that 2 of the toilets had not a scrap of toilet roll in them on arrival. We expect to provide whilst we are at a property but not on the day we arrive! A few more cleaning products would have been useful too eg. bleach or kitchen and bathroom cleaner.

    The best well equipped kitchen I have used as a holiday let. Outstanding location with great ease for dog walking.

    Wonderful property in beautiful location. Didn't want to leave, very well equipped like large fridge, wonderful beds and Aga was a treat. Local pubs are a decent walk (20 -25 off road with children). Property does have a lot of steps like the information says. Perfect for older children (ours 6 & 10) and dogs were in heaven.

    Lovely comfortable, well equipped cottage with everything we needed. The cottage is right next to a forest where we had nice walks. Gorgeous garden which is enclosed but I have a large dog and he chased a rabbit and managed to jump the wall at the top of the drive into next doors garden, I guess I can't take him anywhere!

    Nice Cottage but a bit of a shame the Living Room was so small particularly with 5 adults and two children

    This was our second booking at Keepers cottage in 6 months, so good was our first experience. It was great for our family party and especially our two dogs. Secure garden, plus fabulous walks from the property meant it was hard to drag ourselves away when the weather was fine, so much so, we barely did! - the views and wildlife locally and in the immediate vicinity are hard to beat. Property is warm and cosy and extremely well equipped with quality linen, china, etc. There was a welcome pack on arrival of a few basic items, which is always a bonus, but the only downside this time around was that it was completely devoid of any other condiments to use in cooking-salt, pepper, oil, etc., all of which were there in spades on our last visit, so this was unexpected. I appreciate that not everyone wants to use products that others have used/left behind, but it is nice to have the option if you don't want to spend your first days shopping for small items. We had noted all the warnings about steep stairs inside and out, and despite this our elderly parents chose to join us on our first visit in May this year, regardless; however, we did find the narrow uneven stairs between bedroom and bathroom too uneven to consider their using the upstairs, but instead they found the basement ideal with its wet room, and by entering and exiting the entrance door on that level rather than the internal stairs. However, did feel that this time around it would be a little to damp for them to use in the winter months given their age and disabilities. There a some good pubs around serving quality food, but by far our favourite was The Moody Cow in Upton Bishop a few miles away-a fabulous and faultless dining experience! We look forward to returning to Keepers Cottage at the earliest opportunity.
