Not a luxurious property

  • 2 of 5

The property in my nowhere near absolutely luxurious as mentioned on the website. It lacks a lot of attention to detail and it spoilt our experience of staying there. It was a double birthday celebration and I was disappointed. The oven was not working on a arrival and when I phoned the owner she was not available, instead the man who answered the phone was rather offish. There was no loo rolls and the ensuite bathroom had not been cleaned. The kitchen looks stunning on the website but in reality is dated and could do with a make over.

The management is extremely poor, emails had to be consistently chased up, no acknowledgement of payments received despite requests. Each time I asked a question instead of the owner being personable the standard response was read the terms and conditions. We had paid for a late check out but the cleaners showed up at 10am.

The owner was not very pleasant to deal with and I would not recommend this property to anybody.

If you are planning something very special then this is probably not the property that you should think about renting

Absolutely fantastic !!! 5*

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage in a stunning location. Had everything we needed for a girly weekend. Quick taxi ride into centre of Bath and plenty of space inside and out.

Would love to stay again and would recommend to everyone, couples, families and groups of friends/family.

Perfect weekend - thank you

Lovely house spoilt by bad customer service.

  • 2 of 5

The house itself is absolutely lovely and a perfect size for 3 families to stay in. Unfortunately lack of attention to detail rather tainted the experience. A few days before our arrival we were informed that there was no sound system even though they had mentioned it as a selling point. On arrival there is no toilet roll left for you so if you go, pack your own! A tea bag or small pot of coffee would have been welcoming after a long drive, but alas, no such niceties. Once we started using the kitchen we realised that although the house is extremely clean, the kitchen hadn't been given a once over. The dishwasher is poor and we had to hand wash every item before using as everything had a film of dirt over it. We pulled out a sofa bed to use but it was broken. We also felt very chilly with no control of the heating. We contacted the owner and received no reply. But the next evening the caretaker arrived unannounced to bring us more bedding. The next issue that arose was the hot tub. It smelt strange and looked murky but we wanted to enjoy it, but regretted it as 3 of us cut our feet on a sharp edge on something broken at the bottom of it. We tried the owner again and no reply. We were further concerned about the hygiene of the tub after we read posters in the field immediately behind warning of an outbreak of Weil's disease in the area. Finally the owner text us but only to give excuses and insist that the water was changed after each visit. When we left the property the hot tub men arrived to add more chemicals. (They did not change the water!) They said the hot tub was falling apart. We asked the owner to reimburse our £50 as we only used the tub the once due to the above reasons plus it was only ever tepid! We are still awaiting a response.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that you feel that the customer service was poor, I was in hospital while you were staying at the property. I am astonished that you think that a notice on adjoining land has anything to do with the cleanliness of the property, which as you said was extremely clean. The hot tub is absolutely not falling apart, it is less than 6 months old. The hot tub is surrounded by gravel and it's possible there were a couple of stones in it. The water was not changed, as it did not require changing. The tub is maintained to a high standard by an independent pool and hot tub company. The water is tested before each group arrive, and was immaculate on your arrival. The 'film' that you refer to was probably caused by body lotions from your guests. We do ask people to shower before using as this grease clogs the filter, which had to be replaced after your group departed. We do normally supply loo rolls, my housekeeper forgot to put them out, please accept my apologies for this oversight. We do not provide food, because of allergies, but there was coffee available in the Nespresso machine. We do our best to provide a high standard of self catering holiday at an excellent price, I am deeply saddened that you wrote such a review.

Stunning cottage with all the mod cons

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful cottage, very well laid out and with everything you could want for a large group. The bedrooms are all really cosy with comfy beds and luxurious bedding. The bathrooms are all really well appointed and one in particular has fantastic UV lighting. The kitchen is well laid out and had everything we needed to cook proper meals, quite rare in holiday properties. All in all a fantastic place to stay and definitely somewhere we would return to.

Property lovely, great location, management poor

  • 2 of 5

We were disappointed to learn one day before our arrival that the sound system had been disabled. Also the instant boiling water tap was disabled 'for child safety' but actually it had a built-in child safety button, so that seemed like an excuse. More disappointing, the owner/manager controls the heating system remotely--guests have no control over it. So when waking at 5 am with jet lag, no way to turn on the radiators. No one met us upon arrival so we had to sort of figure things out, and not one phone call to ask if everything was ok. Actually, the central heating was broken when we arrived and the owner did send someone the very same evening to fix it, so she did well there. We then wasted hours trying to figure out how to manage the central heating system before we learnt we had no control over it. For these reasons, I would not book one of these properties again, even though the house was lovely.

Owner's Response: My housekeeper waited over an hour yo greet you in arrival, however as you arrived late, she had left by the time you arrived. I am sorry that there was a problem with the heating. I had visited the property on the morning of your arrival, to leave you some Christmas decorations and turn the heating on. The heating is a pressurised system and as the water started to pump around the system one of the pipe joints came apart. It was a freak occurrence, which was remedied within a couple of hours of discovery. I feel that I could not have done more for you. The heating is set automatically with a thermostat and time clock and you have full control over it. There are 5 sets of controls in the house, and they have instructions on the controls and are fairly self explanatory. We are able to check the temperature remotely, which we do to check that all is well. We cannot control it remotely, the controls are all in the house. As your stay was over Christmas and all of your requests were immediately dealt with and resolved, I think your review is most unfair.
