    Extremely disappointed,website stated kids could ride ponies and milk the goats that made my 5 year old really excited, to then be let down by arrogant rude unsociable people, they didn't even wish us good morning or introduce them selves,so my daughter never got a ride. The cottage was very cold damp and dirty with no cleaning products left for shower etc. Wouldn't recommend and wouldn't go back for free, made our family holiday very disappointing.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; It saddens me to hear that that you were disappointed with your holiday with us. I would like to take this opportunity to respond to some of the comments you have made. We always introduce ourselves to guests when we deliver the welcome pack and homemade loaves. However, I will remind everyone that this is the expectation, in case they forgot this time. You addressed me by name when enquiring about receiving an online shopping delivery during your stay and when you asked about the opportunity for your daughter to ride one of our ponies. Once we aware that she was interested in riding, we asked you to speak to Lora (our riding instructor) to arrange a mutually convenient time for her to have a ride. However, as you did not do this, we assumed that your daughter had changed her mind and was happy watching and feeding the rabbits and Guinea pigs instead. We do provide guests with some basic cleaning supplies, such as Cif bathroom and kitchen sprays, sponges and air freshener which are kept in a kitchen cupboard. As the cottage is cleaned thoroughly by our cleaner before guests arrive, we find that visitors rarely need to do any further cleaning during their stay. However, if guests do require additional cleaning supplies, or would like the cottage cleaned again (during longer stays) we are always happy to oblige, when asked. The cottage is heated with storage heaters, which we appreciate that some people may be unfamiliar with using. Instructions for the operation of these are in the information folder (found on the living room table) and we are always available to provide further assistance, if required. Many of our guests comment on how warm and cosy the cottage is using this heating system. There are also additional blankets in the blanket box and hot water bottles on a hook in the bedroom should these be required. There is always someone available to attend to our guests needs 24 hours a day and we pride ourselves on our customer service. However, as you did not make us aware of your issues during your stay, we did not know that anything was wrong. If you felt uncomfortable raising issues with us directly, you could also have contacted cottages.com, who would have passed on your concerns to us. If we had been aware of these problems, we are confident that we could have rectified them and made your holiday the relaxing and pleasurable experience you were expecting. Please accept my sincere apologies for your disappointment. As a gesture of good will, we would like to offer your daughter a free half hour pony trek the next time you are visiting the area.

    The cottage could be lovelybut a few thins needed updating. The oven was useless grill didn't work & only 1 ring worked. The table & chairs were falling apart & dangerous & very dirty.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent stay with us. We follow up on the comments we receive and use these to continually improve the service that we provide for our guests. We are sorry to hear that you found the kitchen appliances inadequate. We have checked these and have found them to be in full working order. However, from now on we will show our guests how to operate the oven, grill and hob when they arrive in addition to providing written instructions in our information folder. Hopefully this will prevent others from having difficulty operating them. If you had asked, we would have been more than happy to have assisted you with the use of these appliances during your stay. I have passed on the comments you made regarding the furniture to the cottage cleaner. As expected, she was upset that you found the tables and chairs dirty as she prides herself on the high standard of cleanliness in the cottage. However, she has given the furniture a thorough cleaning since your visit and has also inspected this for damage. We are pleased that you referred to the cottage as ‘lovely’ and hope that we will see you again in the future.

    The cottage was beautiful and ideallic for a short stay. The girls on the farm were ever so friendly and even arranged a last minute pony ride for our little boy. It was very cold when we arrived, so had to get the heat on quickly, and unfortunately for me, the heaters dried out the property making me feel quite unwell and full of cold. The location wasn't too bad but was difficult to find at 8pm when it was dark.

    We had a lovely holiday but would suggest the following Updating the guest information as seemed out of date A better cooker, couldn't get the grill to work Mattress protectors would be advisable. Shower not very efficient Otherwise the cottage was very comfortable and homely & we have memories of enjoying a lovely time together. Enjoyed seeing the animals
