We were impressed by the website for these properties and the facilities on site. However the reality was very different. The farm buildings are semi derelict with a pile of rubbish being the view fro… More

"Great facilities in a peaceful location"

We spent a week here at the end of August 2014, booking was easy and quick and all questions that I had subsequently were answered very quickly by the owner. The cottage was as advertised, as were the… More

"Asked to leave the holiday home or alternatively tolerate central heating failure, shower failure and blocked drainage"

We booked the holiday cottage for a week during Easter. On arrival after a 6 hours long drive, we found that the water drainage in onsuite was blocked resulting in smelly, flooded onsuite. Perfect we… More

I had not intended to reply to this review, but having received professional advice, will now do so because of the damaging effect this review may have.
This booking was not made with Holiday Lettings and was only booked as a late booking,by telephone, after mid=day on the day of arrival.
I do not deny that there were problems with the shower or the central heating, but it has been grossly exaggerated and some comments are totally untrue,both were dealt with as soon as it was possible. The shower showed no sign of flooding but we cleaned it throughly anyway and it was cold because the electric supply switch was switched off, although we had informed the couple that they needed to keep it on.
Unfortunately, the central heating boiler, which supplied Hayloft and Parlour did pack up on the Wednesday. I was at work until 9.30p.m. which was the first time I heard about it and went straight down to see them.
The cottage was not cold as the wood burner was going, and the men folk were walking around in T shirts, it was just the lady who had a coat and scarf on. I did offer oil filled radiators as I did to the family next door who had very young babies, as a back to the woodburner. The response to everything I suggested was very negative. I felt there was nothing I could do which would be acceptable and because no payment had been forth coming for the weeks holiday, I asked the family to leave the following morning.
The plumber came by the next morning and he confirmed that there was nothing wrong with the shower but that the boiler did need new parts which he would not be able to get immediately.
We do listen to what our guests have to say and do everything we can to make sure our guests have everything they need to make their stay enjoyable.
