    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.

    A great family holiday. Plenty of space both inside and out, I cannot think of anything extra that is not provided by the owners. Hot Tub was a bonus and used every night. A bottle of bubbly, chocs, and even chews for the dogs left as a welcome pack was a nice touch from the owner, and very much appreciated, thank you. Would we stay here again? Most definitely, we had a ball!!

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Many thanks for your kind comments. We look forward to welcoming you to Ridge House again in the future.

    A lovely house and a relaxing stay. The only disappointment was the weather preventing a few more dips in the hot tub but that's not a fault of the house! Plenty of space for all those staying and the children enjoyed playing with the games available. The owners were even kind enough to mail back an item we had left behind and did so very promptly. Thanks for a lovely stay.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your kind comments and your understanding that the house is not to blame for inclement weather. We are always more than happy to return any items that have been left behind - we appreciate these things happen. We hope you would like to visit Ridge House again in the future and look forward to welcoming you then.
