Perfect peaceful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing peaceful holiday, it was like home from home, so comfy and quiet. You could not of asked for more within the property, even with games and dvds for the bad weather. The location was perfect and you could do as little or as much as you wanted in the area. Absolutely loved it and will definitely be returning.

Tide cottage

  • 4 of 5

Very nice cottages in peaceful setting. Cottage is well equipped and comfortable. Kitchen a little small when cooking for 6 people. Pleasant surroundings and lakes although would be nice if more routes were marked on map. But overall a very enjoyable holiday.

Mill Village facilities

  • 4 of 5

We booked this holiday with 2 primary aims and several other considerations. The primary ones were that Julian wanted to go fishing within walking distance of the property, and I wanted to be able to swim before breakfast every morning, and we checked to make sure that these were both available. Unfortunately the fishing was not the kind that Julian enjoys, as it was for large carp (more than 20 lbs), and he likes to fish for smaller species, so his fishing tackle is not geared for large fish. This meant that he could not fish within walking distance, although he found a suitable lake about 3 miles away, which cost him £8 per day for day tickets. The swimming pool did not open until 8am, so I only went swimming twice, as this is far too late for me. As I swim every day at home, I missed my early morning swim, especially as I had checked in advance.

The cottage was excellent, as was the location for watching wildlife, which was one of our secondary considerations. So the holiday was not a complete disappointment, but we felt that we had been misled by the marketing. We will not be holidaying with Orion Holidays again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to submit a review and for your feedback. I was very sorry to hear that you felt you were misled by the marketing and our team, it's our primary aim to ensure your holiday exceeds expectations which, in this instance, we clearly didn't manage to do. I have taken on board your comments about providing more detailed information on the fishing and pool opening hours..... whilst it is possible to fish within walking distance of the cottage, I'm sorry this wasn't the type of fishing required.... my understanding is that most types of fishing are available on the Estate so if you had contacted us, we could have directed you to the fisheries manager who could have advised the most suitable location for your preferred type of fishing. I am pleased that, overall, you enjoyed your holiday with us and must apologise again if we mislead you in anyway. I will ensure all team members are fully briefed on the type of fishing available on the Estate and ensure that, if guests make it clear they are early morning swimmers, they mention the opening hours of the pool.

A short break

  • 5 of 5

This property was rented on the basis of its price, as we needed to find something very quickly for family reasons. We found the location to be peaceful with lakeside access (although the jetty had clearly not been used, and was overgrown). however, the house itself was clean and 'homely' in that, whilst very well presented, was not pristine, in that it had been used. This made it more welcoming. Well equipped and with easy access, the only difficulty we found was, as we arrived at nearly midnight, the lack of any form of lighting on the road made it difficult to find the parking spot, and then unload the car. However, the external light of the property had thoughtfully been left switched on, which helped us to find it. All in all, excellent value, and a wonderful spot for a canoe/kayaker to locate and enjoy the very quiet water. Not very many resources on site, however; shop closed and the cafe was very slow with its service - but the swimming pool and playground were very good.

I'm sorry you had some difficulties finding the cottage when you arrived late; I will mention the general lighting and signage to the Estate and see if things can be improved.

Lovely location, comfortable, peaceful 3 bedroom cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the cottage. Great place to spend a week, 5 of us and our dog. The cottage was located in a private spot on the edge of the lake, beautiful views and very peaceful.

Only criticism is the windows in the ensuite and behind the TV needed a clean.
