  • "Quiet rural setting with lots of space for a relaxing stay."

    Deer, geese, pheasant, ducks and rabbits see in the grounds. Very well stocked kitchen with helpful recommendations for where to get the best local produce.

    Delighted you enjoyed your stay. We are working really hard to encourage the local wildlife and have added 2 new wildlife ponds and an entire border of deadwood hedging and it seems to be working! Property Owner

  • "The property in general has so much potential, but unfortunately the cleanliness of the property was a big issue, dirty plates with food still stuck on them were placed back in the cupboards, dust was an issue all over the house along with lots of creepy crawlies."

    Yes we are in the country, but these little critters looked like they had taken up permanent residency. Broken trampolin in the garden is a safety issue, (But what an amazing garden to explore.) In hindsight what we paid to stay for the three nights reflected the condition of the property as it was a reasonable priced break. Would we stay again?, probably not as it appears smaller compared to the pictures. But I must say, as a family get together we made it work and had a great time.

    Thanks for the feedback - this is a property we've only just started to rent out, so we are always keen to hear how things can be improved. While we are delighted you had a great time and enjoyed the garden, we are sorry it wasn't perfect for you. We were particularly disappointed to hear that it was dusty. We have fed this back to the cleaner and specifically asked her to check the plates in case the previous guests put them away dirty and to check for dust and spiders. We will also get the trampoline looked at, as it was in good condition the last time our kids played on it but may have been damaged by some of the recent storms. Property Owner
