Beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing long weekend at the cottage. Beautiful walks near by with stunning scenery. The cottage had everything we needed to get away from it all.

Quiet location in a small village and very well maintained

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very well appointed and welcoming. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped. Everything works just as expected ! The whole cottage is kept warm is very clean with a comfortable lounge and two good sized en-suite bedrooms. Our small dog needed to be kept on the ground floor and off the furniture which was very sensible and not a problem. We stayed four nights and had no complaints or concerns. The owners are helpful and on hand if needed. We have no problem in recommending the cottage or the area

Orchard House

  • 4 of 5

The house was very clean and tidy and the overall accommodation was lovely. The welcome pack was greatly received and leaving treats for our Dog was a lovely gesture. Being able to let the dog out in a morning and not worrying about him in the secure garden was an integral reason why we chose Orchard House and it did not disappoint us. The rooms had plenty of character and there was a lovely log burner which we did not need to use mores the pity.

However there are a few minor issues that should be considered to make a lovely house better and feel comfier for other guests.

We found that the dining chairs were very uncomfortable and unsafe, we used the cushions from the sofa to bolster the seats.

Two of the dishes were damaged 1 - chipped the other cracked.

The skylight in the bedroom should have a blind in it / over it as it makes the bedroom very bright in the early hours disturbing sleep.

Apart from these minor points Orchard House was lovely and we had a great time.

We would have no problems recommending it to our family and friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and we sincerely apologise for the minor faults. We check every plate, dish, glass etc so I am unsure how the dishes have become chipped but they will be removed immediately. We are awaiting a new delivery of dining chairs and I am sorry they didn't arrive in time for your stay. We are disappointed in the quality of the chairs as they are not that old but the base padding has lost its fullness which makes them a little uncomfortable without a cushion. We have been unable to source a blind for the skylight that guests can operate due to the height. We have tried many companies with no success but I will keep trying. We are glad you all had a great time, especially rocky and feel able to recommend us to your friends and family. Thank you so much for the lovely card and wine you generously left for us and we hope to see you here again sometime in the future.
