  • "The furniture was well thought out for the property and the bed and bedding were excellent!"

    Docking is a lovely little village, however, it is not tranquil. The traffic starts at around 5:20am and builds up to full on ridiculously busy by 6:30am - HGVs, lorries, vans and tractors with every variety of farm equipment imaginable attached!! The property has a wooden door and old wooden double glazed windows and would benefit from modern glazing for both noise and warmth, (the smaller of the two windows in the lounge is broken and can be opened from the outside). The kitchen looks very tired particularly the work surfaces and tiling as well as the oven markings on the front of the oven being barely visible. The sky light in the bathroom does not have any sort of window covering, therefore meaning that once in the shower, or using the toilet, you are fully visible from the next door property’s upstair’s window. The cleaner needs to pay more attention to cleaning the floors and removing the cobwebs.

  • "As a dog friendly property, I think you need to let people know that the property is not on a quiet country lane, but a very busy road."

    As the only access is via the front door, there was nowhere safe to let the dog out without a lead, particularly before bed. Our dog is quite elderly but I would definitely not recommend this cottage to anyone with a young, lively dog.

  • "We arrived at the cottage to find weeds growing in the front doorway , the door was stuck and wouldn't open, we eventually opened it to find a pile of mail on the door mat , the cottage was freezing cold with all the heating turned off at the socket , there was no sheets on the bed , the Duvet thrown on the floor and dirty towels on the bed , in the Kitchen there was a part bottle of Wine and a Window open which wouldn't fasten , we phoned your company and a cleaner was sent out within 2 hours ."

    The whole experience was just to much and didn't feel safe in a Cottage with a Window we couldn't lock , after a sleepless night , we took stock of the whole experience and decided to go home . This can only be described as the worst holiday we have ever had . We do feel that some form of Compensation should be coming our way . A very upset and annoyed Glen and Lesley Wall

  • "The property itself we thought was lovely, well decorated and furnished."

    It was easy to find, access to keys etc good and in a very nice quiet village. It let itself down a little as there are no cleaning items such as a brush and dustpan or even a small vacuum cleaner. I understand that the owner has a cleaning company in to do a clean after each let, I feel it would be to his benefit if he were to visit occasionally to check on this as it wasn't to a standard that reflected how much he apparently pays for this service. Overall we would go back as it is a nice property in a good location.

  • "I have had four cottages from you and this one was overall disappointing."

    The cottage was clean and the furniture comfortable. Easy access to the very good shop was a bonus. The internet worked well as did the television. However it was disappointing on the following: 1. I do not think you can describe a cottage as suitable for dogs when the only door opened directly onto a busy road. There is no sensible area to let a dog have a dog have a quick urinate. It was certainly not a dog friendly cottage. 2. Certain basic equipment was missing e.g. a broom and a mop would have helped. 3. The kitchen was minute although workable. 4. There was some confusion over the rubbish, and I had to phone the owner for clarification. I am not sure if we did it right even then. 5. It was not particularly cold, but the heating was only just adequate. 6. The sloping ceilings were a bit of a challenge, but I suppose that reflects the age of the property. I think my disappointment was focused by the fact that of the four cottages I have rented from you it was the dearest of the four per guest and in many respects was inferior to the previous ones, with which we have been very happy.
