  • "Dirty pillowcases and shabby looking duvet covers."

    The ceramic hob did not function and the pots and pans were so old and chipped we didn't use them. It was budget but that's no excuse for such neglect. We wont be visiting again...But the WiFi was Good

    We sent you a welcome pack via email to which your response was cant open it send me a letter On arrival you said the Wifi was faulty which it was not as i explained how to connect to it The electronic (Halogen) not Ceramic hob is fully functional but you couldnt work it out after looking at instructions on display, however you managed to override the heating albeit the hottest week this year to 28c and leave windows open, and after the Landlord requested you not to park on the grass you got into a heated altercation The pots and pans are in good condition, not perfect and duvets and pillow cases fully cleaned and ironed, thank you for your feedback Property Owner

  • "The stay was lovely in peaceful surroundings once found."

    The property was in a good condition, although some of the fixtures and fittings needed a little tlc. Overall it was a great holiday in lovely surroundings.

    Thank you for the comments, Sykes have reached out to you for more information so that I can make any improvement where needed at the end of the season. Property Owner

  • "Well organised and superb value for money."

    The Chalet was a little tired at the end of the season, some mould here and there, a torn net curtain, no washing up liquid, little things that didn't detract from the stay. The spare bedding and other things we didn't need made the storage spaces a bit cluttered, but that didn't bother us. Overall a comfortable, peaceful, restul place. We thouroughy enjoyed our stay.

    Thank you for the feedback and for your 4/4 comfort score and for understanding it was the end of the season. Your comments will be taken on board, the curtain unfortunately was due to dog damage and replacement is already underway. We will take your comment about storage on board. Sykes have also reached out to you for more information regarding any spot of mildew you have seen so that I can get that checked and remedied straightway during our winter closure. Property Owner

  • "Great little bungalow, very quiet site …."

    Cleanish, (cobwebs behind tvs on walls) , tidy and very comfortable…. Issues- shower needs handle it fits on replacing as it doesn’t hold the shower head properly so you’re better off using it free hand. One bin in the whole place!….situated in the kitchen, none in bedrooms or bathroom. The microwave!!…. Aweful, rusty inside and I would no way use it!!… Patio door has piece of plastic that constantly pops out when using, easy fix but not been done! Not enamoured with the fact there’s a camera outside the front door that constantly photographs you as soon as it sees movement, I have the same camera so I know it records also!… not on photos on booking but definitely there! ( I appreciate security but not comfortable with someone reviewing my movement on holiday !) If these simple and cheap things were done then it would be perfect

    I personally visited this week and have replaced with a new Microwave also fitted new shower rail as part was missing. The toilet seat had been broken unsure when so have replaced with new one too and yes dusted behind tv missed that one and will update our cleaner thanks for feedback making it perfect for the next guest’s Property Owner

  • "Having read the reviews for this property, we mistakenly decided to trust the owners comments that the damp issues had been fixed within the property and a new cleaner hired (plus new damp proof measures)."

    I can categorically tell you that there is an unmistakable stench of damp inside this property. It permeates every aspect of the property meaning you cannot put clothes in wardrobes, and we didn’t even allow our son to sleep in one bedroom instead deciding to give him the rear bedroom and double bed due to the smell being stronger in the front (meaning my husband and I slept in twin beds). I contacted Sykes after visiting the property, but they were worse than useless with any kind of resolution. I wouldn’t recommend visiting this property especially if you have children. We all left with heavy chests that lasted for weeks afterwards. We didn’t approach the owners during our stay as we had many activities already planned which meant we were out early and back late most days. I was also unable to see how the issue could be resolved aside from leaving and returning home as it was literally the entire building that smelt so we grinned and bared it. I will say, they clearly have updated cleaners as the surfaces were clean and there wasn’t any dirt around, just a dozen or so spiders which we didn’t mind.

    The property had a pre season Sykes visit in March and there was no damp or odour found at all. We give out two phone contact numbers pre arrival for guests and Sykes also has a dedicated helpline for guests in any of their properties who need help or advice, including an out of hours emergency phone line and also a customer account web message facility. As you have acknowledged, neither Sykes nor I were contacted at any point during your stay, until you had been checked out for several days. Sykes also then tried to contact you and asked you to call them back again to discuss further but you regrettably didn't respond. Thank you for noting that the property was clean. Property Owner

  • "Sadly the accommodation was not the cleanest ."

    Spiders and cobwebs in every room . Pubic hairs around the hinge on the toilet seat . Black curly hairs in the bath. Black condensation mould in the bedroom window. Musty smelling towels . Damp smell throughout the bungalow. I have emailed the owner who had replied regarding the matter .

    Thank you for your comments. We were only made aware of the cobwebs etc on the last day and I would have attended myself straight away to rectify immediately, if I had known. When I was made aware on the last day of your stay I contacted the cleaner at 07:00am to resolve, and the cleaning protocol has been addressed and the cleaning resource has been changed to ensure there are no oversights like this again. Apologies that the weather was not too good and we were finding that if any previous guests had left windows closed that condensation could build up. We have now installed a new ventilation system for the 2023 season to ensure that this doesn't happen again. Property Owner

    It’s situated on a lovely quiet site, with nice outdoor space. The big tv is great for when you return from exploring, and the wifi is excellent. The cottage is well equipped. There was an issue of cleanliness, particularly in the kitchen. I raised this with the owner and hopefully that has since been addressed. I enjoyed my stay.

    Many thanks for your feedback and that you found the cottage well equipped. I can confirm that moving forward we have changed cleaners and so the cottage should be at a high standard moving forward. Property Owner

  • "Our suspicions were raised with the overpowering smell of air freshener, this was to mask the damp smell that lingered throughout our stay."

    On inspection of the bed linen, we found stains and hairs in all the beds meaning that we had to purchase our own bed linen the following day. The carpets had not been hoovered thoroughly, they were full of dog hair and we also found a hair band full of hair next to one of the beds. There was mould on the floor of the kitchen, next to the fridge and the shower curtains were filthy. We were very disappointed with the accommodation as the pictures on the site did not represent the true picture of the place. As a consequence, we spent minimal time at the accommodation. We have evidence of all this through pictures and video. We will not recommend using this company to any of our family or friends.

    Thank you for your feedback. We do provide two contact numbers for all guests pre arrival and will help immediately if we are made aware of any concern, regrettably we were not contacted at all during your 14 night stay. We can confirm that we have changed cleaners and have installed a new ventilation system for 2023. Property Owner

  • "I am afraid to say that Peacehaven is the worst place we have stayed at with your company."

    It was smelly due to damp and everytime we came back from a day out the smell nearly knocked you out!. Also the same in the bedrooms,( which actually were worse). We opened the windows to try to help with the musty smell and the condensation and although it was better while the windows were open when they were shut back up again to go out it was just as bad when we came back. The mould was awful above the main bedroom window and the net curtains were also mouldy. The whole place was covered with spider webs and there was even a tissue left under the bed!! On the good side, The furnishings were good and the beds were comfy and the pans and dishes etc were good.

    Thank you for your feedback. The comments that you have left are very out of character for the cottage. We understand that the weather in the area was terrible as it was the heaviest rain in October during your stay. The owners of the cottage are always on hand to help you with any issues that may arise during your holiday and had you made them aware, they would have helped you. The only negative feedback that we have received recently is about the local pub being closed due to Covid 19 Property Owner

    The accommodation was lovely and was well equipped, outside was patio table and chairs, bbq (although we did not use this), even a rotary line! The best place to eat we found was the Cheesewring Inn at Minions, their menu was vast and good size portions, excellent food and excellent value for money. Yes I would definately stay at Peacehaven again.

  • "The bungalow was lovely."

    No problems at all. Our only complaint was the on site pub listed has been closed for over a year. We were told nothing to do with Covid. We couldn't find the footpath to the Crows Nest but found it was a couple of miles away anyway. So unless you're happy staying sober and driving around there is nothing there or close by. Can't fault the accommodation though, lovely place.

  • "Hi..."

    The site was nice and quiet which is what we wanted . It would of been nice if the bar was open onsite but wasn’t unfortunately. The bedding was a bit dated that could easily be changed to White and dressed with any colour. Unfortunately the chairs was really uncomfortable,e which didn’t help my sciatica, and could do with updating, The lodge had everything you needed but due to being a holiday letter myself I felt it unfair to add comments about other things that was out of their control if no one says anything. I hope that the owner has adressed the issue, it’s the little things that make a big difference

  • "When we arrived there was a pint of milk and a packet of milk chocolate digestives waiting for us ."

    A very welcome and nice touch . Peacehaven is a nice lodge and plenty of room for 4 people and our Leonberger . The owners had everything in there that you could possibly need for human and dog. . The site was well maintained with plenty of space for us to walk our dog . The Village Inn just up the drive way was a nice place to relax and have some dinner , they are dog friendly and staff were friendly and helpful. When we walked into the lodge it smelt very musty and damp. Every room had damp in it . I am asthmatic and was having to use my inhaler every day, not something I usually have to do. The rest of my family are not but even they were suffering from the damp. The only light working in the twin room was the main light even though there were 2 wall lights and a lamp as well. The tap in the bathroom constantly dripped. We discovered that the sofa was a sofa bed which my daughter could use instead of her camp bed. The sofa had clearly not been moved for a while to be cleaned underneath as was quite dusty and dirty. She pulled out some duvets from the bedroom cupboard to sleep on as the sofa bed was quite hard, they were stained. There was old food in the cupboards, the outside rubbish bin was full, not a big issue had the rubbish been bagged, but it stank!. Bin day is Friday. As most people leave on a Saturday then I think that would be a better day to collect the rubbish. The light on the outside of the lodge on the driveway side did not work as the bulb was broken. There are streams flowing either side of the site which could explain why the lodge, and most likely every other lodge on the site, suffers from damp. A holiday is what you make of it so all in all we had a pretty good one, however, due to the damp issue we will not be going to this particular place again.
