The house is very spacious and offers ample accommodation for 12 guests. There is huge potential for it to be fantastic, however we were left feeling disappointed. Everything felt very average, despite the price being well over what we would normally spend on a holiday cottage. The kitchen is not well equipped for 12 people - crockery was mismatched, a lot chipped/cracked and there was just not enough! The very slow 2-slice toaster is frustrating. There is no cutlery basket for dishwasher so you have to wash up after every meal! Only 1 tea towel. Kitchen work tops were chipped and swollen up with water damage around the sink (not the most hygienic).
There are only 10 chairs (6 in the kitchen and 4 in dining area) so it is impossible for everyone to eat together at the same time.
The downstairs bedroom at the end had no wardrobe or hook to hang clothes.
The bedroom upstairs to the far left of the stairs has a kingsize sheet on a super kingsize bed which obviously kept coming off. The adjacent bathroom is carpeted and constantly smells damp. The water pressure is a real issue - the showers stop (literally go off!) when there is water running elsewhere in the house which is just so frustrating!
While we were there, the roof in the downstairs bedroom cupboard leaked significantly all over clothes that we had laid out on the floor. We reported this and someone came the next day (no apology). The hot tub only fits a maximum of 4 people at once.
Towel supply is distinctly meagre (1 bath sheet each, some of which were thin and had holes in).
For the amount we paid, it would have been nice to have had something in the way of a welcome pack. Even a carton of milk would have been nice - there was literally nothing!
While we were there, workmen were carrying out maintenance on the outside of the house which was odd (especially when in the hot tub!)
I would not return to this property unless it was significantly improved. Believe it or not, I am not a complaining or negative person but admit to feeling a bit scammed this time!
We stayed here in July for a long weekend with friends and family. 6 adults, 6 children.
Met in reception by a friendly lady who quickly checked us in then gave us a tour of the house.
I was immediately impressed with the house. Clean, nicely decorated and equipped with everything you could need.
The house is beautiful and very spacious giving each family enough space to enjoy the weekend without feeling crowded.
The children loved the big garden giving them plenty of space to play.
Although it is on the outskirts of the holiday park there is plenty of privacy for the hot tub!
Excellent value for money and would definitely book again if we are on holiday in the area!
what a fantastic place, lots of space and lovely rooms. heating with in the house is very good. surrounding area also very good lots of space for kids to play. the hot tub was one of the highlights, lovely at night looking up to the stars. great there is sky with in the house on all tvs.
only thing i would say the house was missing was in the top floor bedroom with spa bath the water pressure was poor so took a very long time to get water in it, also there seemed to be a lack of mirrors in this room. we also noted that the kitchen could be better stocked with suitable pots and pans etc, being a group of 9 this is what we felt could be better.
Location wise the property is not far from shops, driving distance 2-5 miles, however we did book lunch in the old mill inn which was only 2.5 miles away and ordered a taxi which was quite cheap. We also recommend this place!
I must say i would most certainly go back! Already looking at possible dates!
