  • "Very welcoming property with everything we needed."

    Lots of hot water, plenty of towels and kitchen utensils. Suggest a grab rail over the bath and spare pillows. Lovely garden with patio set for outdoor dining! Great television with dvd and dvds!

    We would like to thank you for your nice feedback and are glad that you enjoyed your holiday. We try to make our guests stay as enjoyable as we can. There should have been some spare pillows on the top shelf in the wardrobe. We will be fitting a grab rail on the wall next to the bath to facilitate getting in and out easier. Many thanks Rita and John Property Owner

  • "Health and safety hazards."

    (1) Microwave was situated above head height on top of the fridge freezer - I was afraid to try and use. I mentioned this to the owner and his comment was it was a little tight on space in the kitchen. (2) By the time you open a section of the drop leaf table and open two of the folding chairs housed underneath the table you end up sitting next the rubbish bin and the mop, bucket and sweeping broom which did not seem too healthy to be next to when eating your food (3) It was quite an ordeal to have a shower. The sides of the bath were high and there were no grab rails to hold on to when getting in and out of the bath for a shower. I made do with a wash every other day rather than face the ordeal of getting in and out of the bath steadying on the taps! (4) Half of the wardrobe housed the vacuum cleaner. I won't be going to this property again.

    We would like to thank you for your feedback. We have tried to us the space in the annexe to the best we can. We do act on guests feedback and will put the microwave on the worktop. We will also fit a grab rail on the wall next to the bath to facilitate getting in and out of the bath. I must add the bath is just a standard height. We were under the impression that there was only one guest staying so there should have been no need to get two chairs out in the kitchen. The mop, bucket, sweeping brush and bin don’t have to be there in the way, they can be moved somewhere that is more convenient to your needs. One side of the wardrobe does house the vacuum cleaner but this can also be removed. The wardrobe is quite large and we feel that even half is large enough for two people let alone one for a weeks holiday. We are sorry to hear our property didn’t meet your expectations.

  • "This break was like stopping at my nans house for a long weekend."

    Which as you can imagine is nice. It did take us a while to find the property at the back of the main house as the sat nav kept us further day. Any first impression was OK, says what it is k. The tin basically. However if like a lot of property owners they have a management company that sort the cleaning etc for them they really do need to speak them. It is such a shame as it could be a lovely little gem. And before I go any further, no I did not contact the owner or Sykes I sorted some issues out myself so that we could crack on with the break. Firstly, cleaning spray and a face cloth wet left on the bedroom cupboard (no major problem), the kitchen bin was full to the top, as it happens we have a camper so I had some bin bags with me. There is a lovely welcoming gesture of tea coffee and chocolate biscuits. But I had to first scrub the spoons as they were very tarnished. The bedroom had soft clean linen on, but a shame there are large cobwebs on the walls and over the wardrobe, and when I looked it is thick with dust on top. Moving to the bathroom, again a lovely warm atmosphere, but spoilt by cobwebs, black grout and rusty towel rail over the bath,(this seriously wants removing) a good size towels just a little tired. Plenty of hot water. Areas of the property have had lovely thick carpet fitted and a vacuum is supplied which is good. But the skirting is thick with dust and dirty, the living room radiator as had something splashed up it and on the skirting below but has not been cleaned.It was lovely to see an assortment of birds visiting the garden and a lovely seating area for when the weather allows. It might be a benefit if some kind of lightening could be fit up the side of the property as this was very dark when returning at night. When leaving instructions ask you to strip the bed place items in a black bag and the n in an IKEA bag and the same for towels keeping them separate, unfortunately all that was left for us was 1 ikea bag. I have to say I is such a shame that we would not return to this property because the cleaning is not what we would expect because it is a cracking little property in a brilliant location.

    We would like to thank you for your comments and are glad that you liked the property and it’s location. We’re also pleased that you enjoyed the tea, coffee, milk, biscuits and other little goodies that we leave to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We were very surprised to hear about the cleaning problems. When our guests first make initial contact with us about key collection etc. We always tell them that if they have any problems, to don’t hesitate and phone us. If we had been told we could have asked the cleaner to come back. Some pictures would have been useful to send to the cleaning company. We would like to apologise if the cleaning wasn’t upto standard. The cleaners have been spoken to about this. Many thanks Rita and John Property Owner

    Thanks for your feedback we’re glad that you had a nice holiday. Sorry you feel there is no privacy from the main house but we believe it is quite private. Totally self contained with its own, in our opinion, large garden. We were surprised to hear that you didn’t like the mattress as it is not long since it was changed. It was checked on changeover and was found to be ok. If anything is faulty or needs changing we do appreciate our guest telling us. Many thanks Rita and John Property Owner

  • "Overall a very nice little place which was great value for us."

    Everything worked really well and it was easy to get into. Nice location to drive to and from, very close to a fantastic fish and chip shop and a few small, rocky beaches. The only gripes is with some small maintenance and parking space issues that need sorting. The toilet leaks a little from the back pipe, which is seeping under one of the tiles. The annexe also backs onto a garage, of which the door blows open as the latch has broken, the same with an electrical box on the house (Halcyon) it backs onto, which is also a holiday home for rent as far as I can tell. Regarding Halcyon itself, it was rented to a large group of workmen at the same time as our stay. The parking space out front was completely filled with vans and their cars, which meant that at times we were completely blocked in. Thankfully they were gracious enough to move if needed, however this could pose a problem to someone else in the same circumstances.

  • "Had a lovely week and the annexe was lovely."

    We had an issue with not being able to use the freezer as it was solid ice thus unable to open the drawers or shut the freezer door. It also made the running of the appliance ineffective and the outer sides were red hot. We spent 2 hours defrosting it and get it running normally. The garden also needs a bit of a tidy as we had to wade through tall grass and weeds to get to the garden furniture. Loved the location and would return.

    Parking became very tight on Monday evening when 4 transit vans and a trailer arrived because the main house had been let to a bunch of working lads, they were quiet well behaved except the use of language on one night as they went out. Just be aware this could happen to others.

  • "Once we had moved the dining table from the kitchen to the living room the cottage was comfortable."

    There is insufficient space to sit comfortably at the table in the kitchen. On arrival we were greeted with an overpowering odour of disinfectant that made the cottage smell like a medical facility. With windows open this took a day or so to disperse. We did not come to terms with controlling the electric radiators. Full guidance on these should be supplied. The bedroom radiator was set to 24C -far too hot - so we switched it off at the mains for the duration of our stay. The kitchen and bathroom rads seemed to switched on 24 hours a day whilst the living room rad gave no heat at all. The bathroom basin plug was the wrong size so the basin did not hold water for long. Cleanliness of some of the crockery could have been better. I do not like to remove the previous user's coffee grounds from the cafetiere! Neighbouring properties had separate containers for rubbish/recycling. Why does Halcyon Annexe not follow suit? Despite this list of shortcomings (which I hope will be addressed) we did have an enjoyable stay so do not let my criticisms put you off staying here!
