  • "The cottage itself was lovely and suited our party well, but unfortunately, several issues detracted from our overall experience."

    Firstly, the cleanliness left much to be desired. We found dirty toilets, extremely dusty and hairy bedrooms, grease and dust on the fridge door and floor, and even used contact lenses and dirty socks (not ours) to name a few concerns. Additionally, the top floor bathroom was unusable due to zero water pressure and no hot water in both the bath and shower. The kitchen was also under-equipped for a larger party. As a self-catering cottage with cookery books available, we expected to find adequate cooking equipment. However, there were no larger cooking pots, casserole dishes, or even a measuring jug, which made cooking for our group challenging. Upon arrival, we were greeted by an overflowing general waste bin by the front door, with flies swarming everywhere, which was quite off-putting. While we did enjoy our stay overall, the cottage could have been amazing with a few improvements. As it stands, I don't feel it offered good value for money.

  • "Very cute cottage, very deceiving looks tiny from the road then opens up into this big property with plenty of space for everyone!"

    Two tvs in two sitting areas so those who didn’t want to watch the football had a choice!! A couple of niggles…we were at full capacity of 8 adults not enough bowls or side plates per person, and when we arrived 4 of us had very damp bath towels & they weren’t the largest towels!! I feel cottage could do with a new set of towels hand & bath. Overall though a great location, very comfy beds & very pretty property with lovely outside sitting area.

  • "We were a large group with both adults and children, so the house was perfect in terms of size."

    There is plenty of communal space both inside and outside, as well as the number of bedrooms and bathrooms. However, after the number of reviews regarding the top floor bathroom, I would expect this would have been resolved by now. Unfortunately this was not the case for our stay, and even worse we had no water whatsoever for the upstairs bathroom. This is real shame, as outside of this, it’s perfect for a weekend retreat.

  • "Lynton Cottage is a special place, the layout, décor and furnishing all excellent."

    The beds are very comfortable. The courtyard was a major advantage as it has the sun all day (when its shines, as it did for us!). The pub nearby is a major bonus, and the village is absolutely beautiful. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking for six people. Unfortunately, we also had the troubles reported previously by past occupiers. The shower in the top bathroom only provides hot water and no cold, therefore its unusable. Strange, as the bath next to it seemed to run fine. The shower in the green bathroom had a pitiful flow. We only used the heating once, which was fine, but it would have been nice to have heated towel rails. This is not what I would expect when paying this amount. In conclusion, we would definitely go back again, but would need some assurance the plumbing has been sorted.

  • "This cottage is beautifully furnished with plenty of shared space for the number of bedrooms/occupants and a well thought through inventory of utensils."

    The courtyard, with its sunny aspect and multiple seating areas was a favourite. The quiet location but near a fantastic pub with super food choices was also a bonus. The only thing we’d have wanted more of is better and more instructions about operating the facilities. Showers and heating seemed to be a particular struggle. As it’s April - and pretty chilly - the evenings needed a heating boost in the house. Although we are entirely supportive of prudent use of fuel, it was not straightforward to warm the place up. Similarly, there was insufficient hot water, some showers seemed not to receive hot water or there was difficulty controlling the temperatures on the top floor bathroom, and in the green bathroom, controls were temperamental. Navigating this was not easy during a very short stay (ie - a bit frustrating but not a huge issue). It would also have been handy to have left some logs for the wood burner. Overall a wonderful place and we’d consider returning. Thank you

  • "We had a wonderful start to the New Year staying at Lynton Cottage."

    The cottage is beautifully decorated with all the utilities needed to make our stay comfortable. There's a great local pub and being able to have our dog come with us was a big plus. Also very close to Farmhouse if you want to stay somewhere that feels like an extension but with a cheaper per night price tag.

    Extremely well furnished and comfortable beds.,Intermittent hot water in top floor shower - a plumbing malfunction?? More firewood would have been nice to cover the 3 day stay

  • "Had a great holiday with 8 adults and 2 dogs."

    Plenty of space and everything you need. Comfy beds and big living areas perfect. Garden for dogs. Exactly what we were after. My only negatives are the central heating and the dishwasher, doesn’t seem like we’re the first guests to have issues either. Boost button on the thermostat didn’t always work, the radiators only warm and the house got cold quickly with it being winter. As above, we still loved our time in the cottage and it was a perfect location, maybe just something to keep in mind.

  • "We could have done with some bedside lamps on the top floor, when we used the dishwasher it leaked onto the kitchen floor, we had to use some tea towels to contain the leak There was a lack of socket outlets in the communal areas for charging etc."

    All in all it was very pleasant cottage and we all enjoyed our stay, thanks
