  • "The house was very comfortable and warm it suited all of our needs."

    We were able to sit in the garden and good to have off street parking. Just one question the outside lighting was on all night could that be changed for movement only lighting to save electricity.. We would definitely stay again.

    We are pleased you found South Glebe comfortable and the weather was kind to you so you could enjoy the garden. The outside lights are very low wattage and are dusk to dawn lights so cost less than a penny a night to run . We look forward to you staying again . Property Owner

  • "Had a great 5 night stay."

    Good location in the quiet village of Hawkchurch. First impressions were slightly disappointing, it was clean but did not look like it had been hoovered. Found a few dead insects in living room, biscuit crumbs, various bits on carpets throughout. Thank you for the welcome pack and milk this was appreciated. Positives - View from the front bedrooms. Comfortable sofas and beds, spacious, kitchen was very well equipped, ensuite was huge and like a main bathroom. Minor aspects which could be improved on - having a hairdryer at the property, linens (bed sheets and pillows) were tired,only one tea towel was provided it would be useful to have more. Overall, we would recommend staying here.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are so glad you had a great 5 night stay and feel able to recommend staying at South Glebe . Property Owner

  • "A real quality home from home (great facilities) with some much appreciated nice touches (welcome pack games, books, radio, smart tv's) to make us feel welcome."

    Spacious enough for 6 and quiet location away from the hustle, but close enough to everywhere you'd want to go. Fabulous walks through local marked rights of way, especially good for 4 legged freinds Only let down by uncomfortable tired mattresses and a lack of black out blinds in the bedrooms.

    We are really glad you enjoyed your stay and agree there are some fabulous walks nearby . All the mattresses were bought new only 8 months ago but we understand personal tastes can differ and we always take any guests comments on board for future improvements . Property Owner

  • "We loved the cottage."

    The location was perfect. The accommodation the same. The decoration, furnishings and kitchen equipment was first class. A few minor points - the door on the family bathroom did not lock and we were unable to use one of the dining room chairs - legs wobbly! We had a fabulous holiday.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are so happy you loved the cottage. The minor maintenance issues you have raised has now been resolved. I am only sorry you didn't notify us when these issues became apparent, as we are always happy to attend and resolve issues for our guests. Property Owner

    Two little things I should like to bring to your attention . The legs of the dining room chairs were a little loose and required tightening and for older party members I would like to see a grab handle on the wall of the en suite shower.

    A lovely village with a friendly village pub. Great location to visit all the area has to offer . We loved our stay at this beautiful home. Very well equipped with everything you could possibly need . The outside space is delightful, beautiful garden & seating areas which we made the most of with the great weather … Travelled down from Scotland , good directions & easily found down the narrow country roads . The mattresses were all new & although immaculate aren’t very comfortable. I would definitely come back to this house.

  • "The only downside is the bed in the en-suite bedroom it’s squeak when you move."

    I didn’t like the pillows because you sink in it , mattress and pillows so soft for me.

    We're sorry to hear that you experienced an issue with the bed, and felt the pillows were uncomfortable. We will have a look at this. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "One word… SUPERB!"

    We’ve used Sykes for many years and this property is up there with one of the best we’ve stayed in! The house is in a beautiful quiet location and had everything you wanted. The facilities were excellent and the welcome package on arrival was a lovely touch. The property owners had thought of everything and really wanted to make your stay special! If there was one small suggestion and I mean it’s very small would be a note on the website highlighting the entrance to the parking is quite narrow. Nothing to worry about but definitely worth noting as if you have a large ish SUV type car it was quite tight pulling in and out of the property! Thanks for a lovely stay

    Thank you for your lovely review and we are really pleased you loved the location and facilities of South Glebe. We really appreciated you leaving the house exactly as you found it . We would love to see you back again soon . Property Owner
