  • "The property is very quirky but also could be classed as quite old fashioned."

    The tree feature is amazing, however we did feel the property needed a bit more maintenance. The hot tub had constant problems and the overall outdoor area isn't really looked after very well. We did have a fantastic time though and the property ticked a lot of our boxes.

  • "The listing photographs must have been taken when the property was first marketed and never updated because the current condition does not reflect those photographs."

    The owner should consider telling occupants about the state of the approach road with all its potholes and blind corners before an accident occurs. The garden, which is nowhere as large as the photographs imply, was virtually unusable due to very long grass, nettles and overgrown shrubbery. The owner suggests that they can fine you if you leave dog poo in the garden but ensuring that can be achieved should not be a treasure hunt. We followed the rubbish procedure as requested only to find that the food waste bin was attacked overnight by some mutant creature that ate its way through the lid creating a large enough hole for it to climb through making it unusable for the rest of our stay. We all spotted a very large rat the next day patrolling the garden. The area for placing the rubbish is wide open to rodent attack. We had no alternative but to put the food waste directly onto the compost heap as we saw other visitors doing which again is not an ideal scenario because again it will attract rodents making it a possible hazard to all visitors. As reported by other visitors we found the property clean on the surface but on closer inspection it left a lot to be desired and the hot tub was frequently showing the spanner mode. It says that it is awaiting an engineer visit but I would suggest that this as been ongoing for quite a while considering the amount of visitors who have reported this. The smell from the kitchen cupboard where the bin is stored is atrocious and can not be subdued. The sliding door which opens out into the hot tub area can be difficult too close. The owners have put instructions on the door but the opening statement really relays the problem - 'This door is old'.

  • "Kids called the raod leading to this house pot hole road (the're right)."

    When we arrived I was really upset the house had apparently been getting cleaned all day but this place was dirty and smelled especially in the cupboards. One of the bedrooms was advertised as a queen adjustermatic bed but on arrival found this to only be a single so brother had to the sleep on the sofa for the whole week as no one was willing to do anything about it. We also noted broken wires coming from this bed was told by sykes an electrician would attend, 24 hrs later maintenance man with some tape turns up to tape it. The w/c up stairs carpet was wet with wee on arrival, this never dried out and smelled so bad. The whole house had lots broken or damaged bits. The hot tub looks old and has a crack at the bottom of it and damaged material, and the spannner light kept coming up on the control panel. Saturday night the sliding door pin drops of the runner we managed to close it tried calling owner but wouldn't answer but then ask me to text him. So I told him the issue he said he would call someone Monday. We had no update and the door was never repaired during our stay. Upstairs living room has a balcony on it the hand railings only reach 870mm well this should be a minimum of 1100mm. I have taken up all my issues with sykes.

  • "Cottage is beautiful and very spacious, plenty of kitchenwear and home comforts."

    The washing machine is very small and the temperature always seemed to stay the same and actually ruined a couple of my boys football tops as it melted the lettering.. The WiFi is very unstable x struggled to connect the television at times.
