    We had a lovely week at the cottage, it was so peaceful. The owner provided a very generous and welcome hamper on our arrival, they were also near by if we needed anything, but the we didn't as cottage was well equipped and they've thought of everything! Comfy beds, cosy open fire and very dog friendly, I would definitely recommend this lovely home from home.

    We had a lovely relaxing week in The Old Post Office, Ruckhall. A very pleasant welcome from the hosts and a very generous welcome basket. The accommodation is very suited to having dogs, the local walks are adventurous and the garden is stunning. We would definitely visit again.

    The house was really nicely furnished. Lots of nice touches. However, we got the time of check out wrong, as this was not in the information pack. The owners turned up just 10 minutes after check out time and were really rude, with the gentleman standing opposite the house glaring at us whilst we packed the car. The owners then phoned us to complain that we had forgot to put the bin out! The house is quite isolated, but it was a nice break until check out.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I am very disappointed that this review has been left. I knocked on the door asking whether they had realised that the departure time was 10am, this was at 10.22am. I could see guests were still in bed and that the kitchen was still very much being used. We were asked to give them 20 minutes, which we agreed too. The guests of which there were 7 and not 6 plus a tank with a pet in then left at 11.15am. Yes, we were opposite waiting to enter the property but at no time were we rude. The rudeness came from the guests as they drove off without apologising or even saying good-bye. I did call the gentleman who booked the holiday let to say how disappointed I was that they had not spoken before they left and also to how untidy and dirty the property had been left and yes that none of the bins had been emptied of which the kitchen one was overflowing. He did apologise and offered to come back and help clean which I declined. I therefore feel the comments left are very unfair and unnecessary.

    We had the most wonderful week staying at the old post office. We were greeted with a basket of local produce and the most delicious homemade Victoria sandwich. We felt immediately at home and my granddaughter enjoyed the spacious garden. We extended our stay by an extra night and would dearly love to go back for another holiday. We have rented many cottages over the years and this is by far the best anyone could ever wish for.
