  • "10:00 check out is quite early when we are expected to empty bins, stop beds and leave the place clean."

    Obviously leaving the place in an appropriate state is expected as is emptying bins.

  • "The cottage is spacious and comfortable and the en-suite bathrooms help to make it ideal for a multigenerational family."

    The kitchen is very well equipped and several games are provided for wet weather entertainment. The short walk to the beach along the river is a bonus as one doesn’t need to be concerned about driving or parking. One concern is the absence of recycling facilities. There is a box for glass but no separate bin for plastic, cans or paper. This should be addressed urgently. Also it would help if a few bin liners were provided, in addition to the ones already in the bins.

    Thank you for your positive feedback. We are delighted you enjoyed Lightkeepers cottage and your stay. We have a business waste contract with Dorset council and the only recycling they offer is a glass bin we would love to have more when it becomes available. Recycling can be taken to the Lyme bay offices. Property Owner

  • "Nice cottage,clean and comfortabl inside."

    .However, severely let down by the unkempt garden (which we spent 2 hours removing the unsightly weeds from the rear garden area). Also difficult to park 2 larger vehicles on the front drive. But most off putting were the bins (right outside the front door) which we discovered were full of the previous occupants unbagged rubbish which stank and the bin was full of maggots! DISGUSTING.

    The property does have a regular gardener, however at this time of year, and given the recent rainfall/hot weather, the foliage has great growing conditions. We have contacted the gardener to make him aware, and thank you for taking time out of your holiday to cut back the weeds. We would happily have organised to attend during your stay.

  • "We had a fantastic holiday at light keepers ."

    Perfect size for 6 adults an 4 year old and twin babies. The only thing I would suggest is to let people know the Astro turf gets extremely hot in the sun and can burn children’s feet. So they need suitable footwear. Other than that we had a perfect holiday at the property. We looked after the home as if it were our own and left it in the condition as we found it. Many thanks.

  • "Great house and a good holiday."

    A set of pans designed for the induction hob would be a great improvement along with cooking utensils that don't wreck nonstick pans, on already good house. Lack of recycling facilities for anything but glass. The rest of the street had wheelie bins for this.

  • "Excellent property with great facilities."

    The property was clean, or appeared to be so until we after a couple of days decided to clean the floor in the open plan area. We then found that even the areas we had not used were dirty. It would appear that floor had not been washed prior to our arrival.
