"An attractive cottage"
We thought Gabberswell was a very comfortable and attractive cottage in a pleasant, tranquil location. The information, both before our stay and at the cottage, was excellent.Our one complaint was th… More
We're pleased that Heather and her party found 3 Gabberswell to be a 'very comfortable and attractive cottage' and delighted that she would recommend it to her best friend. We're very proud of all the 5 star reviews received to date and so naturally we are very sorry to hear of her concern about Penny visiting the property with a workman during the holiday week. This is a very rare occurrence (we live a 220 mile round trip away from the cottage) and the visit was made to make some enhancements, and to clarify the operation of some of the amenities, following a phone call from Heather the previous evening. We tried several times to contact Heather to confirm Penny's time of arrival but without success. Penny was pleased to meet up with Heather at the property and enjoyed an amiable meeting with her and her party, so was rather surprised to subsequently read the comment in her review. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience and can reassure Heather that we would not have gone ahead with the visit if we had anticipated that she would have any concerns about a workman attending to matters at the cottage in Penny's presence. Our only reason for attending was to ensure the best possible holiday experience for our guests. We hope that Heather will book with us again!
