    The Byre is a very comfortable holiday cottage, furnished with flair and with care. We had a lovely New Year holiday staying in the Byre and after daytime activities, we were always happy to go back to our 'home from home ' which was warm, welcoming and very cosy. We would definitely love to stay there again sometime.

    We were somewhat shocked at the dirty bed and kitchen crumbs everywhere. Cushions stained. From the picture it looked lovely. Instead it is behind a hall tiny over grown garden . Overlooks a picnic area then golfcourse at back, rather disapointing

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I am very sorry you were disappointed in your recent visit – I am also surprised as our feedback as you can see is normally so great - in particular for cleanliness scoring 9.5 out of 10; which is an average score over many visits, and scoring 10 out of 10 most weeks. We really try hard to surpass guest’s expectations. We also score very highly at over 9 out of 10 for location, with many repeat guests. Regarding the garden, I must point out that we don't own the area between us and the golf course which is beyond and below the rear decking, that you refer to as overgrown - it actually looks quite beautiful just now with all of the autumn colours and shrubs, wildflowers and trees, and guests report their dogs like watching the rabbits and chickens down there from the glass balcony, but that is perhaps a matter of taste - it is not a manicured lawn and I'm afraid as it is owned by the golf club they only allow us to strim it. I think between the photos online and the property description it is not at all misleading - we have a lovely rear deck overlooking the golf course, and a smaller enclosed lawned garden at the front. Regarding the location - again, it is as per the description and photos - we are in the village, but not on the main street - this is considered by most of our guests ideal as they have the convenience of four or five fantastic places to eat within walking distance, but are still in a very peaceful rural setting. Once again, sorry that The Byre wasn't to your taste, and thank you for your feedback which enables us to re-examine our texts, description and images. If there is ever an issue with cleanliness I always urge guests to please get in touch whilst they are here, as our housekeepers are on hand to help with anything, and a letter with contact details is left for this reason.

    The cottage is a very nice, beautifully decorated and warm house, we liked everything ecxept the beds. Bed for 2 persons is too small and our back hurts because of the mattrasses. We will recoment the cottage to friends if there are other mattrasses.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback. We have had holiday properties now for many, many years, and if there is one thing we have discovered it is that as far as mattresses are concerned, unfortunately you can't please all of the people all of the time! - Too firm or too soft....The mattress is a high quality recent one. It also has a feather mattress topper on top. Regarding size, it is a standard UK double (I note that you are from Belgium so just to clarify the sizing). We always appreciate and try and act on feedback, but I'm sorry there are no plans to change the mattress as we simply would not have more happy guests, and it is quite new. I'm glad you enjoyed the rest of the house and your stay.

    Fantastic place no compromise on quality. Photos do not do the size of the property justice. Like home from home and location ideal for all!
