“Great place for a family break”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2019

We booked this cottage for a family group of 4 couples. It is ideal as there is plenty of choice of bed types (twins/doubles/kings) and a huge seating area in the living room. So many properties have space to sleep large groups but not space to lounge around comfortably in the evenings. This had plenty of space. The kitchen was very well stocked with dishes,crockery and utensils etc. Everything we needed was there. All the extra facilities such as pool, hot tub, sauna etc just added to it to give us a very special weekend. It's in a lovely area with plenty to see but we didn't really explore as we had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend where we were. Gill, the owner, was very welcoming when we arrived and communication with her was excellent beforehand too. She answered any questions promptly and helpfully. The cake left for our arrival was a really nice touch and went down well! We would definitely return and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property for anyone wanting to relax and enjoy a break somewhere beautiful.

Owner's reply: I am sorry that you had a few concerns with your stay but glad you appreciated the huge living room and kitchen. Most guests love the upstairs bedroom for its quirkiness with the high ceilings and rafters. There is at least 2 ft on each side of the bed which is a large 6 ft bed. I am sorry about the sheet and will mention this to our housekeepers , if we had known we would have come and changed it. Its a good point about the kettle and I will see if I can upgrade it to a larger one. Some of the beds are zip and link so they either make 2 singles or a large 6 ft bed, this allows us to configure the house to specific guest needs vs just having a set bedroom configuration. On the Apple barn there are 2 forms of heating, an air to air heater and a 12KW wood burner and we have never been told it wasn't warm before so I can only guess that you maybe didn't turn them both on.
