"Over prices for what was on offer, no privacy, second rate furniture."
We stayed at Creeksea Place Barns for one week. Having travelled a considerable distance to get there we were thoroughly disappointed at the unmade track covered in potholes which lead to the barns. W… More
We are very saddened that you felt the need to write such a negative review. We know that this was an important family holiday for you, and we are truly sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. Upon arrival we were made aware that you thought the property would be larger with an en-suite bathroom, and it became apparent that our advertisement was misunderstood by your group. Our advertisements on trip advisor and our own website do show pictures of every room in each individual barn, and describe the space and facilities in detail. We care deeply about the happiness of our guests, so we immediately offered you a full refund and extended our service to help you find alternative accommodation. We also offered you the use of one of our other barns for a few nights while it was available, to give you more space. Despite the misunderstanding, you ensured us that in fact you would be happy to stay in the accommodation, and we had several pleasant conversations with you and your family throughout the week where you very kindly stated how beautiful the furnishings, decor and location were.
We very much wish that you had voiced the other issues mentioned in your review while you were staying with us, as we would have been happy to help you resolve any problems you may have had. The only issue that you did bring up during your stay was that one of the light switches in the bedroom was getting stuck. We offered to repair it while you were out of the property, but you said 'not to worry because we have 3 other working lights in the bedroom.'
To address your point about privacy, River View does have very large windows in the living area which give beautiful views of the field and river. As River View is located right on the end of the barn with only the occasional dog walker passing by, the blinds do give privacy but are also designed to let light through. The bedrooms and hallway outside of the bathroom have black out blinds and curtains to give total privacy, but again the only view outside is of a gravel path and a small cottage. Photographs of this area can be seen on our website. As advertised, we do have other guests staying on site, and we are sorry if you did see a few other people outside, but we do try to encourage a friendly and welcoming atmosphere when people are sharing the courtyard area.
We were surprised at your comments about disabled access as none of your party required these facilities, but we would like to assure future guests that our property has been signed off by building control to allow disabled access.
We have tried to address your comments and take your feedback seriously. Sadly we feel that some items mentioned are very unfair, and in some cases, untrue. We note that you have given us extremely low marks for cleanliness of the bathroom and quality of the bedding. We feel confident that you would have mentioned these issues at the time if these really were such a big problem. We ask other readers to please refer to a review written by the people staying next door in The Hay Loft at the same time. They kindly state 'the barns are spotlessly clean' and we are happy to be welcoming that group back for their third stay with us this summer.
We have been running for the past year and a half, and this is the first review that we have had that has not been positive. We hope that anyone considering staying with us will read through our other reviews of River View and our barns, to gain a more rounded view of the accommodation.

"Beautiful accommodation, superb location, warm welcome"
We had a wonderful week staying in the Hayloft with our 2 children and large dog, Buster. The barn has been stylishly and sympathetically restored with bags of character. Great linen and a powerful shower .. always a bonus. Our hosts were very warm, relaxed and accommodating and their lovely, friendly dog made our dog's stay that extra bit special! We didn't have time to explore the lovely looking walks available from your door as we were there for a sailing event however the children thoroughly enjoyed playing table tennis in the evening with the children staying in River View. A ride on the combine harvester was the icing on the cake. We look forward to staying again at the next sailing event.
Thank you for your glowing review! We have worked really hard on the barns, and it is so nice when people appreciate them as much as you did! Looking forward to seeing you (and Buster!) again soon!
