    the house is stunning and so is the view. The on site restaurant was fantastic and we would definitely stay again! Was perfect for out family Christmas get together and really well equipped for children. Can’t recommend this place enough!

    Beautiful views make this house perfect for a stay to charge the batteries. Use of the pool was an added plus. We took the kids' bikes which meant they were able to explore the area. A pub only a short walk away meant we could have a night out without the car. Would recommend a visit to the Cotswolds Wildlife Park.

    Squirrels leap was located in an amazing natural park, i would recomened anyone to go and stay in. However the house its self was very dirty, there was breakfast cherios in the rug downstairs, plates were covered in old food the bedding and towls smelt of damp. There was a few broken bits of furniture and the house its self looked run down. Over all the squirrels leap could be a lovely place to stay if a better cleaner was imployed,it was given a good clear out of old Junk and nicer furniture was brought.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner. I’m sorry this guest felt let down by Squirrels Leap for his holiday. I have taken his criticisms very seriously. I have checked with the lady who has always done the cleaning and she concedes there may have been a cheerio left in the rug. There is a separate children’s area off the main dining room. The rug has a very deep pile where it is difficult to ensure that every last crumb is removed. As far as dirty plates are concerned, that would be due to a previous guest stacking dirty plates in the kitchen cupboard as there is not time between guests leaving and arriving on the same day to check every item. The towels were all freshly cleaned and some may have been a little damp. However, the cleaner strongly denies that the house was generally dirty. I believe this is the case because she tells me that the cleaning standard was no different on the day the guest arrived. If you look at the other 12 reviews apart from this guests, the picture is very different from his score of 1 for cleanliness. Of the 12 reviews, 7 score 10/10 for cleanliness and the overall score for cleanliness apart from this guests, averaged 9.4/10. His findings were therefore clearly a one-off which has never previously occurred. There was one item, a broken chair on the outside decking when he arrived. This will be removed and replaced.
