“Dissapointing”
Reviewed 13 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

On reading the reviews on Crockham Lodge, I must say my first impression was 'Great' the price was good and was local to where we wanted to go.
On arriving at the property, everything seemed good, Paul the owner welcomed us and advised us that there was a squiral in the loft. Ok, we are in the county and these things do happenand so we started to unpack. Unfortunately the squiral did wake is up very early (about 5am) have hardly slept in a very soft and uncomfortable, very old bed. Perhaps the squiral need to go before renting it out again.
The cottage has everything you need albeit dated and as one other review said there is parable too much furniture, but the biggest thing for me is cleanliness and unfortunately this is what let this place down.
There were cobwebs in the doorways, a very musty 'old smell' and we were invaded with blue bottles (flues). Yes, we are in the country but in February? We caught at least 8 in the bedroom within 12 hours of arriving. We live in the countryside too so know that this was excessive.
Utensils and plates etc needed to be washed before using as there was still old dried food on some and the work surfaces and sink were dirty, something that in my opinion shout be checked before letting out your holiday let.
We do about 6 short cottage breaks a year and would have used this place again but unfortunately for us the cleanliness really let it down.

Thank you for your few kind words and for giving us 3 stars (bubbles). You obviously enjoyed your brief stay, in spite of your comments.
The temporary problem of the SQUIRREL in the loft has now been solved.
After nearly 9 years of letting the cottage, not all through Tripadvisor, this is the first "disappointing" review . The bed is not old and I have never before had a comment that it is uncomfortable. Everyone has different opinions/standards
I appreciate the cottage is not equivalent to a 5 star hotel, which the reviewer is used to, but it does offer good value clean accommodation.

Reviewed 9 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

The Lodge is exactly as described and in a very peaceful location. Newbury town center is just 5 minutes drive from the Lodge.
The Landlord, Paul, was friendly and welcoming and I can say we had real good time there.

“A comfortable cottage in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed 30 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

A very comfortable stay in a lovely quiet location - in the summer it would be great to sit in the garden. There was a lovely walk from the cottage, through private parkland, that had been recommended by the owner. Also appreciated a pub recommendation. The only criticism was that more information could be available in the cottage with respect to wifi access and re-cycling etc - but as the owner lived next door, it wasn't a problem! Would recommend the cottage and area for a week's holiday.

“If you are looking for a cosy, comfortable and peaceful cottage, this is it.”
Reviewed 27 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We have stayed at Crockham Lodge several times and as always, have enjoyed our stay. What I like especially, is the two bedrooms are not together, but on opposite sides of the living room. They also have their own bathroom, so you don't have to disturb anyone else. The cottage is not far from local amenities and after a day out, it's wonderful to come back to such a peaceful and quiet cottage. We would definitely recommend it to anyone.

“Cosy and comfortale”
Reviewed 6 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Cosy and comfortable,although a little on the snug side and would benefit from a little less furniture. Location is excellent if looking for something quiet and peaceful (as we were). Good access for man roads and larger towns and great for country walks. Paul ( owner ) is friendly, welcoming and non intrusive.
