Booked through Sykes and was very disappointed. Hot water and heating lost for nearly 3 days. Under floor heating didn’t work. Hot tub cold for two days. No heating in downstairs bedroom at all. No WiFi all week despite being promised it would be back after a maximum of a couple of days. having a token compensation I was promised a reduction to return yet the owner didn’t stick to what was agreed so left very dissappointed and felt very robbed of an expensive week away which turned out to be far more stressful than staying at home.
Absolutely wonderful 2nd stay in this cottage and hope to return again next year. Nothing too much trouble for the owner who was just a message away to answer any questions, lovely welcome hamper full of goodies from the local farm shop, cottage clean, modern, well equipped with everything we needed for a family stay, hot tub amazing, setting very private and secluded but within easy reach of local shops and pubs with great walks on the doorstep for the dog - all for an excellent price!! Can’t rate highly enough!!
I would like to reiterate the comments of the previous reviewer. This cottage could be lovely BUT why was it so dirty???
The bedding etc was clean but we found clumps of dog hair all over the place, even in the kitchen sink. Whoever is cleaning this property please clean it throughly.
I have photos to prove my statements.
A super hideaway and we loved our stay in Tealby but like the previous reviewer would not return unless standards improved. Sorry.
Location is actually out of Tealby. Promises to be good but a few things need addressing. The driveway needs maintenance as it's quite potholed. Parking for the cottages are right outside where the rubbish bins (overflowing) are. Offputting, specially when not cleared for to days. Sympathetic renovation to a barn. No sight of the owner at all for the entire stay. Heating controls not adjustable so it was too hot for the entire stay. Broken bathroom tap. Broken front door from previous visitor. No logs left for the wood burner just a small amount of cut up old pallets which were just kindling, disappointing. Cleanliness not really very good.....looked like it needed a thorough clean throughout. Spa is in a garden position too 'exposed' to be inviting.
Potentially a good place to stay, actually in need of repairs, cleaning & better response from the owner. Would stay again if the standard was raised
Linda is a wonderful host. We have never been left so many items in a welcome pack... homemade bread, cakes, crisps, lemonade, eggs, milk and dog biscuits! She showed us everything we needed to know and left us to it.
Cottage itself is beautiful, quirky and decorated to a really high standard, yet cosy and romantic for a retreat. Everything you could possibly need is here too. From spare batteries for the remote to umbrellas by the door. Hot tub great too! The garden is PROPERLY fully enclosed, something many cottages don't think about for small breeds that like to escape!! I was able to let her out and forget about her.
It is ideally situated. Easily found from a quiet road and right next to Willingham Woods which are huge and fab for walkers/dog walkers. Also only 5 minutes away from a small town but you feel like a million miles away.
I don't think I have ever written a review while I am still on the holiday ! Very impressed. Larger cottage available here too (very private and secluded from each other despite being semi detached - haven't seen or heard from our neighbours!!)
