Reviewed by StevenOct 2021 "This was our 2nd stay at TBP this year & was just what we needed." ....Peace & quiet. Thank you so much. Looking forward to returning soon Reviewed by RachelAug 2021 "Fabulous stay, we will definitely be back." Thank you Reviewed by JulieJul 2021 "We felt a little misled by the pictures which suggest the property is in it's own secluded ground whereas in reality it is opposite and in full view of the owner's property." There is an annual music festival on the ground which we fortunately missed by 2 weeks. Wouldn't have wanted to be there at that time. Property is very dark inside due to the trees overhanging. Cooking facilities were basic but adequate for our stay. Owners have clearly gone to a lot of trouble to upgrade the facilities and provided high quality items but then cooking is a two ring hob and an oven that gets extremely hot. Yes, we enjoyed our stay, but if we had known all the info we would have been able to make a decision on it's location. Thanks for your feedback. We make it clear on the advert that there is a festival on the site annually which guests can attend and our property is also separated from the accommodation by a road. Regarding the cabin, we do feel that people when booking a wooded area guests can expect some foliage and we think that this enhances the atmosphere one would expect in a wooded area. The hob is as displayed on the picture and the oven has been checked is working correctly with no operational issue. Thank you for appreciating that we have upgraded facilities and gone to a lot of trouble as we take great pride in our accommodation and we are sorry that you did not find it suited your particular needs on this occasion.
