NICE BUT NEED A CAR

  • 3 out of 5
This is a very charming one bedroom apartment. It would work well for a family with children who have a car, not so well for single folk using the train, which is more than a mile away on a road that does not always have a walking path. We ended up using taxis from the station and it quickly became very expensive. The kitchen has no hot water coming out of the tap, but the shower is very nice. Make sure to inquire about the cancellation policy.

Owner's Response: We are pleased that these guests enjoyed our cottage, however dis-appointed that they have made some negative points, all relating to things that are advertised on the HomeAway website page.

Firstly, the website clearly advertises that a CAR is "RECOMMENDED" as we are in a rural village location, and secondly, the NEAREST TRAIN station is "1 MILE" at Church Fenton, which was pointed out to these guests on email, prior to their booking.

The cancellation policy is part of the on-line booking procedure, and a reservation cannot be made without accepting the policy beforehand. The cancellation policy is also advertised on the website below the rental prices.

We would like to remind guests to read our descriptive advertisement in full, and ask any questions they may have, to be sure that they are happy before making a booking. Hopefully this will help to prevent dis-appointment from all parties.

A PERFECT HIDEAWAY WITHIN EASY REACH OF YORK.

  • 5 out of 5
This is a lovely little cottage, very clean and well maintained with everything you need, set in a quiet, picturesque village. The owners are very helpful without being intrusive. The village pub is a stones throw away and serves good food, real ales and a welcoming atmosphere. We felt very comfortable and at home during our short stay. So much so, we have booked 2 more stays.

A FABULOUS, COSY RENTAL IN A GREAT LOCATION.

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed here for 5 nights with my 5yr old daughter and we had a wonderful time. Sally couldn't have been more attentive and helpful. The property is warm and cosy and spacious - the kitchen is super well equipped and my daughter loved the bunk bed! There are movies and CDs and internet and pretty much everything you could wish for. I can highly recommend it.

DISAPPOINTING, NEEDS SOME IMPROVEMENT.

  • 1 out of 5
Our first impression on the cottage was not positive. As we entered the downstairs hall we were met with an unpleasant damp and musty odour that despite our best efforts (of keeping windows open and bathroom extractor fan on), remained throughout the duration of our stay.
It was also surprisingly cold downstairs in the bathroom and bedroom, which was in notable contrast with the upstairs which was constantly warm and stuffy, even with the windows open.
The bedroom and bathroom were quite dark and even with the lights on it was too dingy to see properly. This meant we had to have the blinds open in the morning to get dressed/ready to go out. Unfortunately, being a downstairs room this meant we had no privacy and consequently, my wife was seen naked in the room by a neighbour walking across the courtyard.
Upstairs in the lounge/kitchen, the accommodation was comfortable and had a good selection of videos and entertainment. However, we could not understand how people could sleep in the room as the dormer windows had no blinds. Furthermore, the kitchen was not as clean as I would expect from a rental property. There were food splatters and grease marks on the splash back behind the hob and on the underside of the extractor unit, and both the oven and cooking dishes stored within were unacceptably dirty. Bits of food were also found in the seal and drawers of the freezer.
There was no hot water available in the kitchen making washing up quite difficult and the tap constantly leaked at its base. Additionally, it is always appreciated for a kitchen to include a dishwasher (!), but to not supply any powder/tablets is a first in all my years of renting properties. We had to resort to making a special trip out to find some ourselves, which was extremely frustrating.
In the details on the website, it was not made clear that the property had ACCESS to a garden, as the outside area is divided between the neighbours. Without the owners explaining this we would have not known where we could or could not sit. We were promised some chairs on which to sit outside when we arrived, but these did not materialise during the weeks stay.
The owners were very friendly and welcoming. With more care, consideration and attention to detail, the property could be much improved.

Owner's Response: We were very disappointed and frustrated to receive our first negative review of our holiday home, and that our welcomed guest's stay was not up to their expectations.

We live next door to our holiday home and make it easy for our guests to call on us, or phone us at any time. We met our guests on arrival, and departure, and also during their weeks stay.

We were very frustrated as all of their niggles could have been rectified if only given the opportunity.

We go out of our way to make guests feel welcome and at ease during their holiday.
No-one is perfect, we agree, but we are very approachable, we try hard, and would like to think that if any guests had an issue would bring it to our attention, rather than let it spoil their stay.

We hope that all our previous guest's, positive reviews (not owner's own submitted reviews), help to show the true reflection of our holiday home.

If you have any questions regarding the negative comments, please feel free to contact us on the given email/tel number.

We would like to welcome you to our holiday home soon. Sally & Andy.
