“Peaceful, relaxing, country retreat”

Reviewed 6 Jun 2013

We recently stayed at Moulin Vaddie with our own family - parents, 2 adult daughters and 2 teenage sons - as well as friends - parents and 2 small children. Both families enjoyed their stay; there was a variety of things to do that included everyone, from DVDs and toys to playing darts, and the safe space outside meant lots of exploring. The property is isolated, so taking enough food is essential, but there was plenty of fridge room provided, so keeping it was not a problem. As there was so much room inside the house it meant that we were not on top of each other for the week. Personally, I really enjoyed the wildlife; there were many birds seen at the property from swallows to oystercatchers, and nearby we caught sight of red squirrels and deer. We had a number of questions before booking, and also after, that we asked the owners, and they were able to answer everything to our satisfaction. If you enjoy a country style of life and would like a peaceful and relaxing enviornment, this is definately a property to consider.

“Fantastic cottage in a wonderful setting”

Reviewed 10 Nov 2012

Everyone who came along found the cottage to have everything we needed and without that which we didn't. Was great to be without TV and internet. The rooms were clean and tidy and comfortable. And we loved the mini-bar/games room (invest in a better dart board), lounge and main room. The setting was just spectacular, the out-of-the-wayness perfect and the views breath-taking. We would love to come back.

“Desperately needs a clean. SUCH A SHAME!”

Reviewed 7 Jul 2012

The setting is gorgeous of that there is no doubt. The house is miles from anything in its own little valley and peace and quiet is defiantly on the menu.We travelled with a large group 5 adults (including pensioners) One teenager , two under fives and two dogs so the whole of society was pretty well represented. The one thing we all noticed was that the whole house desperately needs a good clean. There was mould in every bathroom and bedroom and the kitchen was just plain dirty. The owners had left a list of what we were expected to do when leaving which included washing the windows! They say its their own house but I just cant see how people can live like that. There are apparently cleaners who go in but they may have died. There was poo on one of the quilts when the cover was removed for cleaning (when we were leaving so we must have slept with it like that) There was a dart board in the Brai room which looked like a javlin had been thrown at it so was unusable - kind of just as well as there were only three sets of broken and mismatched darts . There were two cracked windows with tape on them, big burns on the carpets and mould and dirt everywhere. The downstairs toilet and sink were blocked (though they had kindly left a plunger!) The games in the games room had bits missing , there was a computer desk which had clearly recently had a computer on it but alas not when we were there. The toilet carpet/mat upstairs was more hole than mat , EVERYONE showered in the en-suite as it was the one with the least mould on the walls. There were no batteries in the remotes , the shed had mostly broken toys (bikes with flat tyres, ONE lawn dart, a totally tangled kite and a bogey with a flat tyre!) There was NO tree swing and access to the field where a second one was to be located was blocked with massive boulders and half the collapsed roof of the outbuildings. I could not make up the flaws that we found. The cost was very high considering the condition of the facilities. The one saving grace was there was (just) enough coal and logs for the four nights . Its taken me a lot to write this down because Im not a complaining person but it was just such a let down. The setting is gorgeous and house is really nice if it had just had some money spent on it since it was done up originally. Even the dining room chairs had been repaired with huge wood screws placed at random points . The lounge chairs were so dirty we contemplated taking them off and washing them. NOT what you want to be doing when you are spending £500 for only a few nights. Im sorry to have written this and although I have pictures of what we encountered I wont be putting them online unless someone asks me to. The place could be gorgeous AND worth the money but the state we found it in and the absolute gall of the owners to leave a list with full cleaning instructions prior to leaving was just not on. NOTHING on the list has been done for many a month! We left on the Sunday night because no one wanted another night in it though we had already paid. I came home needing a wash and we have two five year old kids and cats and dogs so Im no clean freak . Our great friend payed for this break for all of us and I felt devastated for him. We made the best of it and we did have a good time but only because of the setting . What a SHAME . By the way the directions are pretty bad and you have to go through four or five farm gates every trip . Be prepared.

Thank you for posting your review and I am very sorry that you had an unpleasant experience and that you felt that the house was not clean enough. Unfortunately your stay in May hit a very bad time for us - you joke that the cleaner must have died but in actual fact she was just recovering from a stroke at the time of your visit which is why she had not been able to remove the damp/mould from the outside walls in the two bathrooms and perhaps standards were not what they normally are. The mould has been removed. We have obviously taken on board all your comments with regard to the cracked windows, broken dartboards, stain (not poo I can certainly confirm) on one of the duvets and they have all been replaced. I have also bought a whole new set of cutlery, crockery, glasses and place mats, oven trays, dining chair cushions and the lounge chair covers have been washed. I accept that all this should have been done before your stay but we were away and as I said our cleaner was not at full strength. I am slightly puzzled as to why the existence of a computer table/desk in the playroom was detrimental to your visit - I mean why would you possibly expect there to be a computer in a rustic holiday cottage? Nor bolts in the dining room chairs would you rather they fell apart? Also the toys that you complain about in the shed are all my daughters and we had previously left access to them as a bonus to tenants (who sadly have not left them as they were found), but as they caused you concern we have now locked them away. I am very pleased to say that no one has complained about the cleanliness of the place since your stay so we must be back on track and I can only sincerely apologise for the unfortunate timing of your stay.
