    So disappointing. Arrived 3.15, met the owner who was rushing out, Good trip? Sorry have to rush, cottage ready, door open, key inside then he was gone. He returned around 11.00pm. The living area of the cottage was stifling, so hot with only a small window open. One roof window we couldn’t open as it was over the staircase. Second roof window we managed to open but had to leave the front door open for ventilation.No fans available. The table + chairs which were supposed to be outside the cottage weren’t there so we sat on the stairs with the door open. No enclosed area for our dog. No WiFi. Next morning we looked out the window, 7or 8 rabbits outside the cottage, our dog (a spaniel) will chase rabbits so couldn’t leave the open front door. The cottage is surrounded by open fields with no boundaries so our dog could easily have got lost if he’d got out. Although the owner’s car was there first thing no attempt was made to contact us. No information regarding the cottage and the surrounding area was left. The owner drove off again, it was at that point we’d had enough and decided to pack up and go home, valuing the safety of our dog rather than losing the money we’d spent renting to cottage. Shortest holiday ever arrived Friday 3.15pm left Saturday 11.30am.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I am so sorry that our guests did not enjoy their stay on the hottest day of the year, and were clearly upset to write such a review. We ask all guests to raise any requests or concerns with us as we live on site, because if they had done so we could have avoided this unkindness. The complaint we received over the phone, when guests requested a full refund, was that it was not dog friendly, meaning that there was no enclosed area. Most guests are happy dog owners who appreciate that this is a country cottage, surrounded by open gardens and fields. There is a small walled garden that we could have enclosed if asked. The other complaint was that it was too hot. It is true that it was at the height of the June heatwave and it was stifling everywhere. All the windows work properly and the cottage now has a fan, so thank you for that suggestion. There is plenty of outside seating, and if the guest missed something, again, please ask. I was upset about this stay. Yes I was at a wedding on the first day, but did wait to meet them and always have my mobile with me. We also leave the initiative with the guests to ask us things after the initial contact: most value the privacy. Wi-Fi is in the office next to the cottage. We are truly sorry that the guests had a failed holiday, but wish them well for the future.

    Unfortunately the cottage did not live up to our expectations. The wi-fi was non existent in the cottage although the owners did offer us use of the wi-fi in their office. We appreciate the cottage is very old but the lack of equipment was very disappointing. There was no shower mat available and there was a wood lice infestation in the bathroom. Altogether a very disappointing experience.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I am so sorry about this guests experience, I had no idea and no requests were made during the holiday. As we live on site, we can provide anything from the cottage that is missing - please just ask! The cottage is thoroughly cleaned on changeover, but it is an old country cottage and occasional spiders or wood louse may encroach. The Wi-Fi is as described. I'm not sure what other equipment was lacking, there is a good widescreen TV with DVD player, extra freezer if needed, and there should have been a shower mat there. Please just talk to us! I am so sorry for your disappointment and I hope your future holiday experiences are more successful.

    A quiet and relaxing place to stay. Very kind and helpful owners. Great for walking and cycling. The main gardens are lovely and Weycroft Hall is historic.

    beautiful cottage was the perfect anniversary for us. Vince and Clio gave us a very warm welcome. their hospitality was amazing its one of the best holidays we ever had. The grounds surrounding the quaint cottage was so peaceful and relaxing also the cottage was so spacious. We had no fault at all and would definitely go back.

    Cottage needs a complete make over strong smell of damp every time walked in clothes felt damp mold in places not enough utensils in kitchen Lovely Location and short drives to beaches

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I'm so sorry that you were disappointed with the Cottage and smelt damp: we will do all we can to eradicate that. If guests need anything extra we are on site and ask them to ask us: we can normally provide most things fairly easily. As for the complete makeover, it has recently been decorated, equipment has been updated, and it is thoroughly cleaned between each changeover. Many guests love the Cottage, and I'm so sorry you didn't. It is a very old barn conversion on a Grade 1 Listed site, so full of character but definitely not 'modernised'.

    Excellent Cottage. It is a lovely old converted barn with more than enough space. Easy for parking and plenty of choices for walking our dog. The location is not only very central to the area but has a wonderful setting in the grounds of the ancient Manor. Vince and Clio are very helpful and more than happy to show us the Great Medieval Hall and tell us of its History.
