Firstly we are very frequent hirers of cottages and we have never written a bad review in the past. We take the rough with the smooth essentially. However in regards to this cottage we cannot avoid providing negative feedback. To begin with there is no welcome pack (a pint of milk, a tea bag, soap in the bathroom etc.). Not essential, costs very little but generally provided by most cottages. No instruction pack full stop. No wifi code, no how to use the oven, microwave etc etc. LIterally nothing. No useful info on the surrounding local area etc. No visitors book. All of which we may have just taken on the chin however there is also no oven gloves, no scissors, no sharp knife (two tiny blunt knives only), no cleaning materials whatsoever. So as soon as we arrived we had to go and buy such essentials from the nearest supermarket. Added to all of that, the first time we went out, the owners entered the property without informing us. In all our many cottages we've stayed in before this has never happened to us. Feels a bit like you have been burgled. I can see from past reviews that this has happened to others. In our opinion this is unacceptable, if entry is necessary just ask. Or even tell us you've had to come in for whatever reason (after all things happen). So a two week stay was sullied to be honest by both having to equip the premises and worry about when the owners were next going to slip in unannounced.

We had a lovely time at the stables and would recommend it to families looking for a quiet rural break. I get the impression that the property is quite newly renovated and the interior design in the property is beautiful. There are a couple of things that might be good to add to the kitchen for example scissors and maybe a bread knife. We had trouble with theDVD player too but that might of been an expert technical skill!

A beautiful property which is really huge. The owner was very friendly and solved a heating problem very quickly. The addition of some equipment would make it ideal. For example, there was no teapot, corkscrew or oven gloves!
