  • "A lovely welcoming cottage with good central heating (welcome in a wet January)."

    Comfy beds and excellent facilities. A lovely location in a pretty and welcoming village with a good chip shop and a handy local store. The owner kindly let us know in advance that a garden fence panel was damaged but this wasn't a problem. However, I would just say that the garden isn't secure for dogs large or small as there are several areas where they could escape. Just worth mentioning for future visitors. Other than that, no complaints at all and really enjoyed our stay.

    We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We will review the garden security for dogs when we get the fence panel re-fitted. Thank you for pointing this out to us. Property Owner

  • "A truly beautiful cottage in a very pretty village."

    Close to Rutland and the many stunning towns and villages. The beds were very comfortable and the bedding thick and cosy. I slept better than I do at home (possibly down to the fresh air and gin at the local pub)! Incidentally the pub serves great food which we sampled for my birthday. The service was great and our greyhound was made welcome whilst we ate. The locals were very friendly also. The kitchen is well equipped with an enormous fridge freezer and doors leading out to a pretty garden. We would definitely stay here again and recommend anyone looking in this area to try it out, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed

    Thank you so much for leaving us a lovely review. We are lucky to be in such a beautiful location in the UK. We hope to see you again sometime. Property Owner

  • "Upstairs shower room fan is caped in fluff."

    Garden needs some attention, eg weeding. Really loved the cottage and high end furnishes.

    Thank you for bringing to attention the shower fan. We will get it looked at as soon as possible. We have some time booked in between guests to give the garden some attention. So pleased you liked the cottage and its furnishings. Property Owner

  • "Double bedrooms very cramped, no real access down both sides of the beds."

    Really can't see how this property could hold 6 people. We were 2 older couples and found it was great for 4 as we had a double bedroom each or the twin bedroom. Dining table and lounge seating suitable for 4 not 6. No potato masher or Pyrex to use in microwave to make sauces, porridge etc. The property was lovely and clean so overall our stay was pleasant. In a great location close to Rutland water and barnsdale gardens. Pretty village and good pub.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have been renting out the cottage for a year and never had any comments about the beds or the other points raised. We will of course look at putting a potato masher in the kitchen and a pyrex jug. Property Owner

  • "Both toilet seats were broken and one toilet was not even connected to the floor as the bolts had rusted."

    Many lights were not working, including the one over the dining table. The towels were very rough, one of the beds you could only access from one side, so one of you had to climb over the other to get out. The garden was very uneven and totally unsuitable for an older person. There were old bits of broken wood in the garden with nails sticking out and access to the garden path was not good.

    We were sorry to hear of the issues you had during your stay. As soon as we were informed about the toilet seat, we immediately worked to get it replaced. The outside porch light we were able to fix immediately and we have an electrician booked to go into the property this week to check all the electrics. We have never received any negative feedback about the garden and patio before. However, both have been booked for renovation this springtime. Property Owner
