Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay in Goat Barn and we do appreciate guests' comments to help us improve what we offer.
As you said Goat Barn is a " work in progress " and in fact the property only accepted guests from end June 2014 so we hope next year to be able to improve some of what we offer. Sorry if you did not find the mattresses comfortable and "cheap" we will look into improving these when funds become available. However we cannot understand why you thought a genuine antique brass king size bed in the master bedroom was "cheap" !!
Also the bedding used is standard bedding - neither top of the range nor from a market stall. This is all reflected in the pricing which you state is half the price of other similar properties.The beds are British made and the same as those used in our other property which has been running for 18 months now and as yet no other guests have commented on them being cheap.
The comment re the washing machine we feel is not justified as this is stated clearly on the holiday letting website as not included in the property .
Re the kitchen and cooking - we do provide the basic utensils and cookware ( pans, frying pans,casserole dishes etc )so would be interested in knowing what you felt was missing so we can provide theses in future.
WE do hope that you did enjoy your stay with us as we did actually go " the extra mile" for you - when you arrived we realised that you had five children with you ( although you had booked for 8 adults) and we gave you extra bedding to make up all the bunk beds for the children ( at no extra charge ) so we did try to make your stay as good as we could for you so we are sorry that you were not totally satisfied with your stay with us
Re the lack of restaurants & takeaways- it is clear from the webiste that Goat Barn is set in a rural area and we imagine guests investigate the local area & facilities before booking properties. Many guest do in fact enquire about pubs,restaurants before they book. Also did you not see in the visitor book that we provide a number of leaflets from takeaways (Indian/Pizza) that deliver to Goat Barn and we know many guest have used this service so it was not necessary for you to cook unless you chose to do so. Also if you needed something for cooking - why did you not simply ask us if we had it ( another guest asked for a food blended and we lent ours - problem solved !)
Thank you again for bringing these points to our attention and we hope to continue improving the standard of Goat Barn in the future.
