    “I actually was a bit dissappointed in the fact that we could not book longer than 28 days in one accommodation,there must be other people as ourselves wanting to book Holiday accommodation for 2 or even 3 months.”

    We had to book 2 different cottages,which in fact cost more to do with booking fees etc. than being able to book one place.But fortunately for us this time it was a blessing,as we were very dissappointed with the Barn,the apartment first floor was okay,but we were surprised and disturbed by the owners Parents turning up and making alterations to what is described in the description of the Barn,as the OFFICE downstairs.We did complain to them and I did get in touch with yourselves about the ...

    We had to book 2 different cottages,which in fact cost more to do with booking fees etc. than being able to book one place.But fortunately for us this time it was a blessing,as we were very dissappointed with the Barn,the apartment first floor was okay,but we were surprised and disturbed by the owners Parents turning up and making alterations to what is described in the description of the Barn,as the OFFICE downstairs.We did complain to them and I did get in touch with yourselves about the situation.After that ,from the next moment we were ignored,and were not asked if everything was okay,also no apology from them or the Parents,all I got from the owners Mother was a surprised look as I mentioned the disburbance,as if I had no rights on the subject. But the Pear Tree Cottage was a completely different experience,the owners were so lovely and polite,and called in to see us,and asked about a mattress that had been marked by a previous booking,in order to photograph it for Insurance,to order another Mattress,we didn't mind,as they were so nice.Pear Tree Cottage was superb,a beautiful little 2 bedroom cottage,very clean,and excellently stocked with little knick knacks,even down to a little egg slicer,also a lovely Welcome Hamper with essentials,and a box of Chocolates.Highly recommended,and lovely owners,would go there again in the blink of an eye,fantastically situated.
