“Standard Dropped Since We Holidayed There Last Year”
Reviewed 17 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

people found this review helpful

Having stayed in this property in June 2015 in which we loved the property it was a excellent 5 star holiday property , so upon our return we didn't hesitate in booking again for the following year (June 2016)
When we arrived this year we was extremely disappointed with the drop in standards in a year. The property its self is excellent with lovely surroundings so it's a shame that lack of cleanliness and property maintenance as dropped.
When we arrived we found a wooden stool up against the freezer door !! We then realised that the stool was holding the freezer door shut !! Making the freezer unusable for us as you couldn't trust a stool keeping the door closed - there wasn't even a simple not to explain this or apologise.
We found a plate with traces of dried food on it and a glass with lip stick marks on the edge of it so we ended up washing most of the dishes before we used them - we had to clean the upstairs bath out before we used as there was marks and bath scum left round the edges from previous use - when we had the doors open you wouldn't believe the "dust balls and hairs" that blew out from under the sofa and downstairs double bed. We opened one kitchen cupboard and there was one of the roof end caps in there what ad obviously came off and instead of being fixed was just left in a cupboard - and we actually found a kids matchbox car under a sofa - maybe from a previous guest !! Again prove the cleaner isn't doing a good job.

It's a shame the such a lovely property in a brilliant location is being ruined my silly cleanliness and maintenance issues - and this as certainly put us off booking again for 2017

The Barn is absolutely beautiful. Tasteful decor, comfortable and with the added bonus of underfloor heating we were toastie all the time.

Oustanding unspolit views of the surrounding countryside. We all loved it.

“Absolute Bliss”
Reviewed 13 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Just arrived home from a week at this beautiful barn conversion. It is the perfect place to unwind and relax. A nice walk to the dog friendly beach. Comfy beds, good facilities, well equipped. The only negatives were the previous occupants hadn't washed the crockery and utensils properly but this was easily remedied, and quite a few fly's around but hey...its the countryside so only to be expected. A fantastic holiday!

“Beautiful cottage and location-Perfection!!”
Reviewed 25 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Stayed here for 3 nights, which was not long enough - need at least one week to explore the beautiful surroundings. Have stayed in many places throughout the UK and must say that this was the best by far. The cottage is stunning and clean set in a jaw dropping location. The owner of this cottage has thought of everything you need for a relaxing stay. Have just booked my next visit and cannot wait!!!
