NICE

  • 4 of 5

The overall impression of the cottage was good that's why I gave four stars.

But here comes the problems.First of all the electricity was by key meter which did not have any electricity on it so straight away had to top up the key meter.Then had the gardener knocking on the door to clear out wood in the garage then again next door knocking on the door to water the plants.Then of Saturday of our first week come in while we were out to cut the grass (oh yes using the electric we paid for his lawn mower).

Even all that decided to book another week on September 9th paid the deposit and owner confirmed my booking then three days later email to say that his wife had double booked so those dates not available anymore. Well, surprise surprise on the owner Carl Facebook page it said he is single. So where is the wife. Having all this going on while i was on a supposed relaxing holiday for myself and my 75year old mother for two weeks made a bad taste in our mouths and by Saturday night of the first week decided to leave and come home.

If the gardener wants to cut the grass this can be done between the change over 10-4

There was notes in the property listing do this and dont do,s .

Did not feel like a holiday more like running someone property for them.

I would not book again or use Owners Direct as if there is any problems Owners Direct do not take any responsibility but charge a fee from you the traveller and a fee from the owner.So any problems have to be dealt with the owner direct.

I did get my refund back for September but as i have mentioned all of this blighted our holiday.

So, therefore, will not book again.

And for note, the pond filter was run on the electricity that your pay for would not have minded but there were not fish in it as the gardener told us a heron had eaten them.

Beautiful, welcoming, very dog friendly property

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage - well equipped, very very clean, and welcoming.

Beautiful, large, fully enclosed garden - very dog friendly!

Very close to all amenities, but in a quiet residential area.

Thank you so much for letting Mum and I stay with our dogs. Will definitely be returning later this year, and next spring also!!

Excellent stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage, beautiful garden, very dog friendly, nice area. We really have got no negative comments to make, and the accommodation was really clean! One of, if not, the cleanest we have ever stayed in, and we have stayed in several.
