"Expensive for this type of property"

Nice basic accommodation, clean and equipped with all that was needed. Swimming pool lovely as was the hot tub, but thought it disappointing that you had to pay to use the sauna and likewise if you wa… More

Thank you for the review and rating and we are pleased you enjoyed the facilities at North Hill. I am sorry you felt that you should not be charged for using the Sauna (£1 for 20 mins coin operated) and the hot tub. The hot tub can be used without cost. We feel these small additional costs are justified where there is a heavy use of electricity or heavy wear and tear on a pool table for example. We believe our cottages are keenly priced and the cost for Ivy Cottage in this case was £435 for the first week in September. The price was pushed up over £500 because the guests in this case chose to book through a third party who charge a commission, and they bought two dogs which are charged at £25 each. This charge for dogs is fairly standard and many cottages would not take 2 dogs.

Thank you for taking the time to let us have your feedback following your recent stay. We are delighted to learn that you enjoyed Tawstock Castle. Thank you also for your constructive comments regarding the facilities and the general decor. It is a very popular property with us and as such is subject to a certain amount of wear and tear. The owners have been made aware of your comments and have already arranged for these remedial works to be carried out. A mid-week clean can be carried out at the request of guests, however this is not currently included in the cost of the holiday. If, in the future, you do require an extra clean, please let us know so we can arrange this and advise costs. We very much look forward to welcoming you back to a Rural Retreat soon. Best wishes Rupert Seager
