    The cottage was dark needed a few trees and bushes cut back. We found the traffic noise constant.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments. Unfortunately, cutting the surrounding trees too much would spoil the character of the property. Regarding the road noise, there is one period of the year when the local farmers need access to dress the fields.

    Unfortunately the barn conversion in its location was too dark. Because of a lack of natural daylight there was an overriding smell of damp and lights needed to be on at all times of the day (other than upstairs bathroom). Owners should look into trying to put velux windows in the bedrooms. Also, because of the lack of daylight, towels & any washing couldn't dry properly (although summer we had rain & dew so hanging outside not really an option) and generally property felt too cool although not cold enough to warrant turning on heating. Although the cottage accepted dogs, the garden is not secure and our dog had to be watched all the times outside to make sure he didn't 'escape' through the unfenced shrubbery area on the left. The main lane running outside of the property is on the whole quiet, although very large, heavy tractors whizz by at great speed, so extra care is needed exiting the property either on foot or by car. Plus point was the meadow area opposite with the small river running through.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; It seems to me this guest maybe blaming the poor weather lately on the property. There are planning issues relating to installing Velux windows in barns and the existing windows are quite adequate, after all bedrooms are for sleeping in when its dark anyway. Any property will feel chilly and damp if it’s very rainy and you have damp clothes. We would recommending putting the heating on for short periods to make it more comfortable. The garden is adequately enclosed but if the dog is intent on getting through dense shrubbery then it shouldn't be left unattended anywhere.

    Clean and welcoming and generally nice holiday. No internet connection or telephone signal that would have been useful to know at the time of booking. Garden not secure for the dog. No fence on left hand side.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner: We are glad you enjoyed your holiday. With regards to WiFi; our property doesn’t advertise WiFi as the signal is very poor in our area. We request that pets are not left in the garden unattended.

    This is the second time we have stayed here and it's a lovely quite place. No distractions and all you need within a couple of miles. A great getaway from the rush of the city.

    Lovely holiday but cottage rather remote which meant lots of journeys down some narrow lanes. If we hadn't wanted to visit the area this would not have been an issue. For a quiet time in countryside it would have worked. Need to make sure you have adequate food supplies as long way to a shops.

    Small barn not ready for us, cleaner did not turn up till 6.30 PM - got date of handover wrong. Cottage is in middle of nowhere and difficult to find

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner:- Thank you for your feedback. The cleaner seems to have slipped up twice now and as mentioned previously she has been replaced. She did admit to you this was her fault and offered you a complimentary drink at the local pub she works at. So we were very surprised when you got home you had to review us poorly. On another note a sat nav will take you to the door.
