Thank you for providing feedback following your recent holiday. I am sorry to hear that this was such a tumultuous experience for you and your family. We believe that we did all that we could for you to try and facilitate a move for you. Were we the owner of this and all of our other properties, then of course we could perhaps have released you from the contract.

I can see from the notes that Mrs Jephson really did take your request for extra guests seriously too, but she felt strongly that the cottage could not accommodate more than the advertised number of people unless another bedroom were opened up, and was saddened when you consequently cancelled your booking. She also felt it would be unfair to ask her caretakers to deal with the aftermath of such a large group within the limited changeover period, as well as the added wear and tear on her house.

You are absolutely correct that once you have made your booking you are liable for the cost of the booking, unless the owner consents to release you from the contract or you meet one of the conditions in our terms of business, including illness or bereavement. We will, however, always do our utmost to re-let the dates for you if you prefer, and if we are successful then we will issue a refund.

We really are very sorry to hear that your holiday was not a happy one, and we understand why you have decided not to book any further holidays with us. Accordingly we have removed your name from our mailing list so that any future communications will not be distressing to you.

Thank you very much for your positive review of Cotmore Cottage. As this is a brand new venture it is really pleasing that you have enjoyed your holiday and found the accommodation to your liking. We have tried very hard to appeal to a broad group of visitors including small groups such as yours but also provided facilities that will appeal to families with children and babies. We are pleased that you found the provision for the dogs good and although the patio garden is small it is totally secure and provides a pleasant sun trap for outside dining and barbecuing (BBQ provided). Thank you once again, kind regards, Annette

Hi, we're sorry to hear that you stay wasn't a good one.
We do try to post as many pictures as possible for you to make your mind up on your choice of cottage. The description does state "small, cosy and refurbished...is perfect for two or a couple with children".
We have passed on your cleaning comments, which are not acceptable and ensure that these will be remedied in the future.

Many thanks

James

Thanks for your comments, we're unhappy to hear that your stay wasnt a pleasant one.
