“Beautiful cottage in tranquil setting”
Reviewed 2 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Lovingly furnished and comfortable cottage. Great weather for long weekend stay so enjoyed sitting outside most of the time. Lovely flowers on arrival and children made short work of the chocolate cake. Good walks locally. On site some excellent tennis courts. Maria very helpful as we had to call for help on using the coffee machine which is a great addition to the kitchen and the coffee beans supplied very tasty. Only down side was coming home. Even our dog refused to move when it was time to leave and it took a while to coax her into the car; our teenagers had a great time which is the biggest recommendation of all.

“Beautiful lakeside holiday lodge”
Reviewed 30 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The rocklight was absolutely lovely. We were greeted by fresh flowers and a box of biscuits- a lovely touch. The lodge is beautifully decorated with good attention to detail. Everything you could wish for in a holiday lodge was provided.
Maria answered a query straight away. We will be re- booking- this was a perfect place for us!

“Cleanliness not good”
Reviewed 12 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

people found this review helpful

It is a lovely location overlooking the lake, The owner Maria was very nice and welcoming. Wine was left and also a cake but was a bit dubious about eating as the best before date had been taken off. But did find it was cleanliness of The Rocklight a issue. The only time I have never brought my cutlery and plates etc., and definitely needed here. The draws in the kitchen all could do with a deep clean. Also in the downstairs bathroom there is a fiesty smell and I found the shower not brilliant either not what I would call luxury. The main bedroom is lovely over looking the lake ,but the other double could do with abit of a revamp. Overall the location and amenities for the children are great. But I will not be coming back as very expensive £300.00 for a 2 night stay and that was with my dogs going for free.

Dear Julie, we are disappointing that you encountered issues with The Rocklight. We worked very hard to fit your two night only booking, already giving you a good reduction in the cost to meet your tught budget for celebrating a special occasion. It is indeed disappointing to read such an ungrateful review from you. You confirmed receipt of our domestic instructions in which we highlighted that should you encounter ANY issues during your stay, you were to contact us straight away so that our housekeeper can put it right. You clearly chose not to do so, therefore not giving us an opportunity to rectify any issues. Therefore, we find your review deceiving since you did not contact us during the booking reporting any concerns. I personally delivered that cake to you on your arrival, and yet you repay us with mistrustful comments? Thankfully, most of our guests are not like that. You are correct in highlighting that you will not be returning as we would not accept a booking from you and strongly recommend other hosts to abstain from doing so. Finally...., what sort of person travels with their own cutlery when doing self-catering??? All said, I think.

“Stylish, comfortable, well equipped”
Reviewed 2 September 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Stayed here for 2 weeks from end of July to beginning of August with 4 adults, 2 teenagers and 1 dog. Lovely decor, felt more like a well-loved home than a holiday rental. Very well equipped and lovely and comfortable. Only slight drawback was that there were no cushions on the 'sofas' outside on the decking, so couldn't really lounge about in the sunshine!

The area is fabulous, and we felt like we had only scratched the surface of what was available to do - plenty of glorious walks with the dog, delightful shops, and foodie delights everywhere. Would absolutely recommend this property and the whole area.

We were delighted to read that you loved our home and had a great holiday. I am sorry that you did not find the outside cushions, as they are stored if the weather is not nice, in the outside cupboard next to the sofas themselves. We would have been only too happy to point you in the right direction should you have asked us during your stay. Similarly, we sent you a courtesy email upon your checking in but as we did not obtain an answer, we gathered everything was ok. We are only highlighting this so that our future guests are aware that we have cushions.
