    The location was wonderful, however the house decor and funrnishings are tired. On a positive the games room was great for the children. The utility room was also a good. Conservatory felt like a B&B dining room rather than a practical dining space for 12 people. Large garden was a bonus and great for both the kids and dog and with fantastic views across the valley. Owners were very helpful during our stay, and the welcome pack of fizz of chocolates was a nice touch.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for taking the time to review our property and we take on board your comments. Your score is very much out of line with the majority of the previous reviews we have received and doesn't appear to reflect your general appreciation of what Ridge House has to offer. However I appreciate this is your personal view. Your comment regarding the conservatory was rather confusing with regards to a 'B & B dining room rather than a practical dining space for 12 people'. The dining facilities are very clearly depicted on the website so this arrangement shouldn't have come as a surprise. Most guests are delighted to dine in a lovely consevatory with superb views across the Roccombe Valley. I'm pleased to read that you found us very helpful during your stay.

    Oh what a fantastic holiday!! We booked Ridge House for the purpose of a two week extended family holiday and it more than exceeded our expectations in size and layout. On arrival, the property was spotlessly clean and Becky, Rob and Alison were available to answer any enquiries. We booked a mid-rental clean and would recommend this to any future rentals and again Becky and her colleague were very flexible with this. The location was an ideal base to explore surrounding areas but we also enjoyed the beautiful garden and along with the views and the Hot Tub! We note that a previous review mentions that some rooms may be due for refurbishment, whilst we note this, we would consider that the photographs on the website were accurate and there was no misleading information, again this is a family home and suited our needs. The Prosecco, chocolates and Dog biscuits was a lovely touch on our arrival- thank you and we really appreciated the flexibility of the owners in our booking. We will be looking at rebooking this again next year subject to other matters within the family. Thank you

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you so much for your review. It is so nice to receive such comments from Guests who appreciate that they are staying in our family home. I'm very pleased to read also that you feel the photos are a true representation of the property. Becky, Alison, Rob and Dave all work hard to provide a clean and welcoming environment. They get despondent when we get a bad review (which are very rare - thankfully) because it rains, or despite the photos and description being accurate the house isn't to guests taste. As Owners, Derek and I are more than happy to be flexible when possible and are really glad we were able to be in this instance. We really hope we are able to welcome your family to Ridge House again in the future.
