These well-presented, unusual and comfortable holiday properties consist of a self-contained, ground floor wing of the owner’s detached, 19th-century home, set within its own grounds, and a detached cottage, set within the owner’s grounds.

    Very welcoming owners. Property well equipped and comfortable but bathrooms in particular in need of a deep clean. The pool is lovely but the owners rules mean that you cannot spend a sunny day by the pool as it is in their private garden and they will only allow guests from one cottage in at a time. This was quite a blow as "a day by the pool" was quite influential when booking, perhaps we didn't read the Cottage information closely enough? Net curtains would add privacy to the bedrooms when guests/ owners pass to access the pool/ garden.

    We were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the cottage. The owners had overlooked nothing. The cottage was well equipped and there were lovely little touches included like: tea and coffee, a box of shortbread , plenty of plates ,cutlery etc. and a lovely extra touch of a bottle of wine chilled in the fridge. The owners were very friendly and easy to get on with. where it fell down a bit, which was only a small inconvenience , there were no shops in the vicinity and we needed a car to go anywhere. Hence the lower scores for amenities etc.

    A wonderful place to stay, we thoroughly enjoyed our week away, and would certainly stay there again. Ou hosts Mike and Mary were such lovely people, and nothing was too much trouble.

    We only stayed for a weekend but although we had everything we needed the cleanliness let this cottage down. There was mould on the shower head and walls of the shower, the kitchen wall tiles were dirty and the kettle also. We did not use the oven but the grill pan was left dirty and contained grease and foil.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; I am so sorry that you were disappointed with the cleanliness of the cottage. The shower head is an unusual and, I agree, appears to have mould, but I can confirm that it does not! I obviously missed checking the oven when I cleaned the cottage in preparation for your arrival - so if there was a dirty baking tray in there, I can only apologise for my oversight. If you had mentioned it during your stay, I would, of course, have cleaned it for you. Thankfully you did not require the oven so it didn't present a problem to you. Sadly some guests do leave dirty pans or other utensils and I do occasionally fail to spot this and I always appreciate it when someone tells me so that I can put the situation right. Again, the kettle is regularly descaled, but the lid on it (being plastic) has been stained with tea, but the kettle itself works well and is hygienically clean. We will look to replace this kettle so that other guests do not feel that it is dirty.
