    This is a beautiful house in a great location. Sadly the good bits end there. The furniture is nothing short of disgraceful, uncomfortable, looks filthy, faded & sagging. Lots of light bulbs not working, showers are hit & miss & really only safe to use one at a time in case of scalding or freezing water. The windows are really grubby. Plenty of cobwebs. And as for the towels that were left, they looked like they came from a charity shop. So, we would definitely not recommend nor revisit unless the furniture & furnishings have a massive upgrade. Lovely big garden but very weedy, lovely house but very poorly kept.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are of course very disappointed to have received this review about our home which we have had great pleasure in renting out to so many guests who have enjoyed staying there. As can be seen from the majority of our reviews we have had very positive feedback and the guests after these gave the cottage a 10 out of 10 and are on their 3rd visit.

    We booked Sunshine Field Cottage for 8 family members and 2 dogs to celebrate a 60th birthday celebration and we all had a super time! The pictures do not do it justice, we were thrilled when we arrive to see how well kept the cottage was and well equipped. The rooms were beautiful, all had comfy beds and were nicely decorated. The pool was chilly but the two youngest members of the group still went in every day and it was all freshly cleaned for when we arrived. The only thing we needed was a non stick frying pan (which I had noted was on previous reviews and I forgot to take!) The lovely kitchen and aga is perfect for making large family meals and so really think an extra pan would be used, other then that the kitchen had everything else we could possibly need. Towels were provided for both indoor and pool use, We also found a lovely welcome gift of wine and biscuits on arrival which was a nice touch. I have already recommend this property to friends who asked about it when I posted some pictures!

    Ideal house and garden for families with young boys who love to run around outside and swim.

    Truly enjoyed our stay. Found the setting & gardens lovely for birding, however, were disappointed the pool pump wasn't working. Understand there was flooding in the pool area from heavy rain just before we arrived. The bedrooms & beds were very comfortable. The conservatory with the heated floor was wonderful as was the AGA in the kitchen. Would have liked to have access to a nonstick pan for fried eggs. Had to fetch toys from under the sofa and would suggest having cleaning crew move & clean under them more often. We changed the bulbs that had burnt out in the stairwell from bulbs we found in the laundry cupboard. The bulbs Victoria bought had too large of base. One lamp in the conservatory has gone bad from sea air but there was plenty of lighting with out that lamp. Loved the extra parking for guests. Had a 90th birthday party and all the elders were easily brought in. Perfect gathering area in the sunny warm gathering room. The gardens were a joy with the children. Put the rubbish out as directed but the men didn't take it away. Recycling bin turned full not with our recyclables. Every thing was as dreamed for a stay in the English countryside. Would stayed longer if it was available.

    This was our 2nd visit, as we have been guests there before.Loved the layout and the cosy relaxing atmosphere that the property creates. woodburners most welcome.lovely to be able to have the dogs there although the garden needed a path down to the carpark as it was very muddy!, Also as there is only a hedge surrounding the property we were unable to let the dogs out there ( only small terriers) in case they got into the field and road. Just a thought. Thoroughly recommend this to anyone and will certainly be looking to book again. We did also mend the Kitchen Roman Blind as all the cords had come out. We have our own Blind company so not a problem!! Hope this helps Mary & Steve
