Booking for 10 (Full Occupancy)

Bedroom Configuration

1 Triple (ground floor), 2 double (1 ground floor & 1 upstairs), 1 twin (upstairs) and 1 single mezzanine (ground floor)

Depending on the group make-up 1 double and 1 single mezzanine is accessed through one front entrance, while the triple, double and twin bedrooms are accessed through a second front entrance.

However, for close knit groups and families all parts of the cottage can be accessed from either front entrance by walking through the triple and adjoining double bedrooms.

For smaller groups the cottage is extremely flexible and can be segmented and is priced accordingly e.g.

Basic Booking for 8 consists of either

1 Triple, 2 doubles and 1 single mezzanine or

3 double and 1 twin

Basic Booking for 6 consists of either

1 triple, 1 double and 1 single mezzanine or

3 double rooms

Basic Booking for 4 consists of either

1 triple and 1 single mezzanine or

2 double rooms

However, those smaller groups who are not couples or close friends or just want more space and privacy can choose to have sole use of the remaining double and twin rooms which would then attract a single person supplement.

The chosen configuration to be confirmed at the time of the quotation and booking.

"Misleading booking"

When making the booking for this holiday I selected I wanted 4 bedrooms for 4 adults + 1 infant. We arrived at buck farm to find we had been allocated 2 double rooms and the mezzanine bedroom (situate… More

When this booking enquiry arrived on our system it requested a quotation for 4 adults and one child, however, never stipulated that each adult wanted individual bedrooms and therefore was quoted accordingly as couples. The layout of the building enables us to segment the cottage, (i.e. close bedrooms) for smaller groups and therefore charge pro-rata for less than full occupancy as was in this case. Once this misunderstanding was raised, we immediately gave the group an option of opening up the remainder of the cottage, therefore giving them a further two double bedrooms, however, they declined to pay the single room supplement for these additional double bedrooms. In the past we have had several successful corporate bookings and groups of friends and family that requested individual bedrooms for either some or all of the party, which the cottage has the flexibility to facilitate. However, here each quotation took into account the under occupancy of any double or twin room which accordingly attracted a single room supplement. Furthermore, I am disappointed to read in their review that the mezzanine bedroom was chilly, particularly as during their stay we spoke to them several times and on each occasion stated everything was fine or ok? If this issue was raised at the time it could easily have been resolved.

"NIGHTMARE EXPERIENCE!"

I stayed at this property in August with my sister and four of our grandchildren. From start to finish the whole experience was APPALLING! We believe the description of the property is fraudulent … More

Unfortunately the majority of what this lady states I would politely describe as “pure poppycock” aimed at trying to viciously discredit the holiday let. In short the cottage has been wired up in accordance with statutory IEE regulations and has a fire safety inspection certificate. Furthermore, the large gardens have been safely enjoyed by many of our guest’s children. Then she uses poetic licence as she fails to mention that her party arrived several hours early but was allowed to sit in the kitchenette/lounge while the cottage was still being cleaned from the previous guests that had just vacated earlier that day. Hence the soapy water and dish cloths in the sink. Originally she asked for a quote for 8 and on receiving this then changed it for a quote for 6 (2 adults and 4 children) which she accepted. Then on arriving was not happy with the allocated triple, double and single bedrooms, which equates to 6 beds? However, due to the make- up of the party (2 grandmothers and 4 grandchildren) my wife agreed to open up another bedroom for their use but removed the two spare beds, which greatly upset the lady. Surely it’s a coincidence that one of the parents also arrived mid-stay, making a total of 7? Then on leaving she demanded her £200 damage deposit and was very unhappy being told this would be forwarded once the cleaner had cleaned the cottage and checked for any damage. Here, it was found that the grandchildren had damaged bedding and linen, furthermore, each bed is religiously fitted with a mattress protector for the hygiene of all guests, however, some of these were missing from the children’s beds? We purchased and replaced these items ASAP, forwarding the shop receipts with the remainder of the damage deposit. Here, using some choice derogatory expletives, this lady accused us of lying about the damage and fabricated the missing mattress protectors? . To justify our actions we retained the damaged items and took photographs of the rest for inspection, however, she was not interested in viewing them. Finally, the cottage was left in such a state that the cleaner took almost three times as long to clear, clean and sanitise the cottage, plus some walls required repainting. Examples being smears of human excrement on the toilet walls, food and sweets remains ground in the carpets, wax crayons drawn on the tables, chairs and walls, the oven/grill and pan left with cremated food remains and grease, etc., etc. In hindsight we made a huge error by not charging for the rectification of any of this. In conclusion, it cost us more than we received to remedy the after mass of their stay and as such this lady would not be welcome back at any one of our holiday lets, irrespective of her vicious derogatory review.

Unfortunately on arriving this lady was upset that the cottage never had a large country kitchen as in her words “she wanted to invite and entertain a number of friends and family at the holiday let”. Here, the online facilities description clearly states that the cottage is furnishes with a kitchenette, therefore I am not sure how this lady assumed otherwise? However, going forward this is planned for the 2015 season, making Buck Farm suitable to facilitate such events as a traditional large family Christmas. Subjectively in her opinion she states that the property has serious fire and electrical issues. Conversely to her review, the property was inspected by the fire safety officer who in total only made a couple of minor recommendations which where address in full. Furthermore, the building was rewired in accordance to statutory IEE regulations. Finally trying to be derogatory she states that the furniture was reminiscent of a charity shop purchase. Sadly I have never been in a charity shop as they do a great deal of good for needy causes. However, to make such a comment I assume her own charity shop visits and experiences where negative and not up to her own high standard. For the record all the diverse furniture at Buck Farm was purchased new 18 months ago in order to facilitate a warm, homely, country cottage environment which the majority of our previous guests have enjoyed. In conclusion Buck Farm will not suit everybody and on this occasion as they were looking for a longer term holiday let, it did not live up to this customers high expectations and needs, However it has been enjoyed by many large and small diverse groups prior and since this review. Sadly this customer fail to mention that as a good will gesture once they found more suitable accommodation that met their longer term needs, we refunded part of their second weeks rent in order for them to move.

"TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE"

Please be aware of booking this property. All is not well with it!!! We returned from the property 12 days ago having paid £200 deposit. We have still not had our deposit returned. HOLIDAY LETTI… More

During the summer holiday lettings changed their policy from Landlords to themselves retaining and repaying the £200 damage deposit. This is something we had advocated from the beginning. However, during this short transition period there was confusion who actually held the damage deposit relating to some individual guests such as Jean Malcolm. Furthermore, being on a week’s holiday during this confusing therefore exacerbated the delay. I have apologised and continue to apologise for the delay and for any upset this lady experienced chasing her deposit. However, on a positive note, I am extremely pleased that going forward a neutral agent will hold and police the damage money deposit scheme.
