  • "Lovely big house in a great position, but we spent the first two days cleaning it, evacuating spiders, and sorting the bins (which had not been done for ages) and the house itself has been neglected…such a shame!"

    Facilities were very good but cleaners doing bare minimum.

    We have spoken to our cleaner regarding the issues mentioned . She was very concerned about your comments as she sets herself very high standards . Our house is carefully cleaned after each guest stay . We strive to ensure that the house is well maintained . Recently renovation work has been carried out on external areas of our property . We do advise guests , in the house information booklet, of the procedure for the local rural refuse collection that we subscribe to . Property Owner
