  • Mrs Hardingham

    “We were disappointed in the cleanliness of the accommodation.”

    Seat cushions on the kitchen chairs were dirty and stained. The oven was dirty as were some of the oven trays. We felt we had to wash everything before being able to use them. My husband went round with my stick and a cloth to get rid of cobwebs. The photographs of the property were misleading making the place look bigger than it actually was. We were also plagued by gnats and were unable to open the doors and windows. Apart from that we had an enjoyable holiday.

    - Mrs Hardingham, June 2021

    Dear Mr & Mrs Hardingham, I wish to apologise, in writing, which I have done by phone also. It was such a shame your experience was spoilt by the fact I employed a cleaner for the first time prior to your visit. The job of cleaning was obviously not carried out properly and has now been rectified. So glad you enjoyed your holiday in Somerset in spite of this. You are welcome back to a very clean Shippen any time. - Sykes owner relations
