Property was fine but very disappointed that the day after booking the prooerty cos was reduced

  • 1 of 5

On the plus side problems were resolved quickly and the cottage was well equipped. However we arrived to find dirty bedsheets left in hall of property. Child's pillowcase had blood on it put in to question whether it had been changed. A lot of the Dinner plates were chipped. No teabags or coffee in the welcome basket. A crab bucket with rotting bait was left in the garden together with several beach shoes. The main problem for us was that the bunk beds were downstairs. As a parent I would not have allowed my children to be alone downstairs. Also we had an elderly disabled gentleman in our party who found the stairs very difficult but would find the bunk beds also difficult. I would suggest the bunk beds be moved upstairs and twin beds downstairs or just do away with the bunk beds altogether as there is enough room for twin beds in that room and these are not as dangerous for small children. We had to constantly supervise our three year old grandchild to ensure she did not fall as she insisted on climbing the top bunk but was very sketchy at climbing down again. The parents had to split in to two rooms to ensure she was safe. Not ideal. Getting in and out of the parking area at the property is not easy particularly as the bus stops across the exit and exiting us blind on to a road suitable fir one car only. It is the same getting into the road for parking - you cannot see what is coming until you ease into the road. We nearly had our nose taken off the carbon several occasions. Pillows in property were thin and stained and needed replacing. There were not enough either - most adults need two pillows but there was only one and one spare in each room but the spare had no cover on. This property is in a built up area which is not that pleasant. We were woken up regularly when the pubs let out and also by house alarms going off and dustbin collection at 5 am. Street noise is prominent. I had not realised how poor Brixham is. Prefer north Devon to south. Lovely properties beautiful villages and very welcoming. Will avoid this area and definitely won't use this website again - extremely misleading and we paid summer rates for an autumn let. Used to love using owners direct but if I was an owner I would definitely not use this site and I would not recommend it to anyone else either. We were left a bottle of wine but others were given chocolates and wine by the owners so there is no consistency

Owner's Response: Thankyou for your feedback Suzanne, We are sorry you felt this way about your whole experience I would like to apologise for any thing we could have rectified given the opportunity .Our listing on this site does show the exact location and it does state how the bedrooms are layed out accordingly and the price you paided was the mid season ownerdirect rate £565 (our peak season direct booking rate is £850) so I hope this clarifies the situation the rate charged is below average for a 4 bedroom (8 person)accommodation in September in the area there are many that are double that price . I have taken on board other comments made regarding the cottage and have worked with the changeover company to ensure that this is rectified (the situation with the laundry at the door s at 3pm was due to the( fact that the company that picks it up had broken down) and had apologised for this happening .We have many repeat & happy customers and we are sorry that you feel you were not one of them on this occassion. Kind regards, The owners.

Fantastic cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our fifth visit to freesia cottage. The cottage is large and well equpped, amazing value for money, bedrooms are large and linen exceptional. The cottage is situated on a frequent bus route and is central for visits to brixham, Dartmouth and Torbay.

The owner ensures you have a fantastic stay and is very approachable.

Cannot recommend highly enough.

Fabulous Family Break

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week in this beautifully decorated cottage, everything we could have wanted was provided, and more. The location was perfect and on several occasions we walked into Brixham. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this cottage, great value for money, we hope to return again soon.

Goodrington beach is perfect for all ages and the Brewers Fayre was good value for money. Brixham is a lovely town with lots of interesting shops. Had a lovely meal at the Poop Deck Restaurant in Brixham. 6 of the party went Mackerel Fishing and caught 166 mackerel. Crabbing in the harbour was also great fun.

Can't recommend this beautiful cottage enough.

Good value accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was very well equipped and clean, and what a nice touch having little extras like wine, chocolates and welcome basket of tea coffee sugar and biscuits. Fresh clean good quality towels and linen was provided. We had a lovely week as there are so many places to visit in the area together with places to eat and drink. We hope to revisit in the future.
