    To be fair we had an amazing holiday. Red kite house wasn’t up to Complete standard ie cleanliness wasn’t very good. But all bedding towels etc where all very clean. Kitchen equipment was ok. Very dated. But in all we had a great holiday an I would visit red kite house again.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Glad you enjoyed your holiday but cannot understand the 2/10 rating on cleanliness. You did not contact us about this during your stay. Our housekeeper works very thoroughly to prepare the property for guests. Sometimes it is difficult to achieve that when the place is left in a state by those departing, but without fail it is always up to standard before new people arrive. There is also little we can do if guests ignore the requirement to put the bin out and this regrettably impacts on the next family or group who are staying.

    This was our third stay and we enjoyed ourselves immensely as usual. The owner is very helpful and easy to deal with. We are already thinking of returning next year.

    Had a lovely stay here. Loved the house, much bigger than it looks in the pictures. Plenty of room for our party of 4adults and 4 kids. The location is great, really beautiful. The only negative is that it could of been cleaner. We had to clean the fridge before use. The chairs in the living room are very tired and dirty. In saying that we all loved the old fashioned look of the house and realise it would cost alot more to stay here if it was more modern and uptodate.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner: The cleanliness of the property and guests comfort and enjoyment is of paramount importance to us. Steps have been taken to ensure that issues of this nature should not occur again.

    Unfortunately, although we had been asked not to go to the property until 4pm, due to it being cleaned, etc., when we arrived, any cleaning that had been done was superficial. It by no means spoilt Red Kite House for us, but we had to spend sometime wiping surfaces, cleaning up under beds and the TV unit. The group before us had not sorted their recycling waste correctly, so the bin was rejected when we put it out. We spent an hour with rubber gloves on sorting out the recycling waste. The general waste had not been emptied either, so when we left, the bin was completely full! Not our fault, but not something the incoming group would have been very happy about. Apart from cleanliness, Red Kite House was a great place to stay. Wonderful views, plenty of room, good utensils in the kitchen and very relaxing after a hectic day.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner: Although I'm delighted that you had an excellent stay we apologise for any shortcomings in the standard of cleanliness on this occasion. Thank you for your feedback and I am confident that there wont be a repeat. As is common with holiday cottages, guests are asked to put out bins on a designated day. There is clear signage on the kitchen noticeboard and schedule as to which bin. Unfortunately some guests occasionally forget to do this. The bin cycle alternates fortnightly between recycling and general rubbish. If a bin is not placed out for emptying then the following guests suffer the problem mentioned in the review. We can only apologise and re-iterate that clear instructions are given. The actions taken by you go above and beyond goodwill and we would like to register our gratitude as I'm sure the following guests would also.
