                                                                    Keeping bonds

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    Thanks Julie, I expected better from you, as you know we kept your bond because you burnt our new hot tub cover with a cigarette. I asked you to come and have a look at it but you declined and tried to stop the card payment. Disgraceful behavior you should be ashamed. We have had over 12,000 happy guests and only 5 incidents of reckless damage like this, would you do this on your furniture ? Our feedback is 99.9% excellent with guests returning time after time. Look at all the 5 star reviews.

                                                                    5 family week long break!

Opening the door to the cottage we were delighted truly home from home with everything you need and more for your stay. Was relaxing from minute arrived. Later Viv arrived who is truly helpful and friendly and felt more at ease further to enjoy our stay. The pool is amazing we felt like a king and queen when just the two of enjoyed a dip. The hot tub on our patio was also a extra special touch recommend using in daylight and taking in the views. We cannot wait to return and in process of booking our next trip. Value for money defiantly when leaving did not want to leave. Thanks don't change a thing Sara and James

Tony and Viv were fantastic nothing was to much trouble! Cottage was lovely and cosy and the pool and hot tub was amazing both private and communal. The men especially liked the snooker room will definitely be back thank you both for a lovely stay

                                                                    Loved the cottage and especially the hot tub. Tony was helpful and easy to reach when we needed any extra logs for the fire. Would recommend for anyone wanting a relaxing weekend away.
