    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner. I'm so sorry this guest had a poor experience at the cottage. To get such a devastating review is always upsetting as we strive to deliver a lovely holiday experience. To clarify on a few issues: whilst being sensitive of guests' privacy, we live on site and welcome contact with them at any time during their stay. In this instance early liaison had been by telephone, when the guest said he was keen to fish on our stretch of the River Axe. I said I was happy for this and said that there would be no charge, but on trying it he was apparently disappointed. On leaving early he mentioned none of these complaints, but just said that his wife wasn't sleeping well as the bed was too low. Later came a request for refund, along with some of the reasons mentioned. It's a shame they weren't raised at the time, as there would then have been the opportunity to rectify them. The safety issue concerned an opening window on the first floor, with a low wide sill. It had not been raised in previous Health & Safety checks, but we have now fitted a restraining strap. The standard size 4 poster bed's mattress is 40cm/ 16 inches from the floor. This is on the low side for some people, so we will now make guests aware. The appliances are well used but perfectly functional and other guests have happily used the outside rotary drier. We would not want to make out that this is a top of the range, modern apartment. It is a rustic, old barn conversion and part of a Grade 1 listed Hall. Most people find the ambiance beautiful and peaceful and the charm of the Cottage is in the fact that it is not all super-modernised. We wish this guest well, and are so sorry he had such a bad experience.

    we enjoyed our stay at the cottage very much, the surrounding grounds are beautiful, the only downside was the weather, cant do anything about that.

    Very disappointing. Health & Safety nightmare, photos available on request. Cottage needed a good spring clean, cobwebs and dust everywhere. Needs an upgrade, smelt of damp. Bed linen not ironed, which is ok but it was lifeless, ie old, as were the pillows and duvet. Object to paying for my dog, as the cleanliness was not up to my standards, let alone the dogs. Bathroom heater didn't work. Had to wash crockery and cutlery before use. Needs to be done in a dishwasher, after guests, as there are only hand washing facilities in the kitchen and not all guests standards are the same. Too many wires behind the TV (dangerous) Shower curtain dirty Poorly fitting lid to the water heater (dangerous) Extractor fans filthy Kettle needed descaling Plug in is a fire hazard

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I am so sorry that this guest had such a poor experience: I wish they had raised this with me at the time, instead of which the 2 guests appeared friendly. Without wishing to appear defensive, when most other comments are very positive, to get such a devastating review makes me wonder why. The flats are cleaned at each handover, but being very rural, cobwebs can appear at any time. I take all reviews seriously, particularly safety issues, but I'm at a loss about this one!

    Lovely cottage in excellent location. Up a quiet lane in lovely grounds of an amazing Mansion. Yet within walking distance of the town of Axminster. A perfect rustic retreat and good value for money.

    The cottage is lovely, unfortunately it is heated by Night Storage heaters and these had not been put on earlier enough, so our first night there was freezing cold. The location is beautiful and our dogs loved the grounds and fields. I would certainly stay there again but in the summer months. I know the new owners have only been there a few months and believe they are new to the holiday let business, as I have run a small hotel, my recommendation would be to improve the cottage would be. 1. The place is for two people and therefore there was only two plates, cups etc, most people do not want to keep washing up, so I would suggest more plates, cups etc is provided. 2. The bedroom had been decorated and everything matched the only small thing that let it down was the duvet not being ironed. 3. In winter months the heating needs to be put on earlier. The above are not complaints just my observation to make the cottage a more appealing place to stay.

    I purchased this cottage for a friend in need this Christmas as a gift for her, so the feedback I give is relayed by my friend to me..! The cottage was in a wonderful setting, and was so very noise free, it was silent night totally. When they arrived, the cottage was cold and they had to ask for a heater as it has night storage heating it wasn't enough in the winter. The cottage was really pretty and comfortable, the owners were very accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. They would like to think that they would return again soon.
