    “Firtree cottage was very clean and comfortable, lovely decor, however was lacking the small things such as salt and pepper, milk, no complimentry toiletries, there was only one tea towel and no change of bed linen or towels.”

    The property is not very child friendly we had to take our own babygate for the stairs, there is a large dip between the house and the grass in the garden so didnt feel like i could just let the children run round freely aswel as having no gate going from the garden to the driveway. We did have an issue with the boiler going off one night but was resolved the next day after i had to keep chasing sykes as we did not have a direct contact number for the estate manager. ...

    The property is not very child friendly we had to take our own babygate for the stairs, there is a large dip between the house and the grass in the garden so didnt feel like i could just let the children run round freely aswel as having no gate going from the garden to the driveway. We did have an issue with the boiler going off one night but was resolved the next day after i had to keep chasing sykes as we did not have a direct contact number for the estate manager. There is a lovely park at the end of the road in the field and the smisby arms pub meals were delicious. All in all we had a great week.
