“Cottage was very comfortable and the children enjoyed the gardens.”
Reviewed August 22, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We very much enjoyed our stay at Owl cottage and the children are keen to return there again. The use of the gardens in the main centre was a really great addition for us.

“A very peaceful place”
Reviewed August 18, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We enjoyed our stay here. Everyone was very welcolming and friendly throughout. Owl cottage was homely with everything you could need and the front garden is a little paradise. We used the pool a few times which was lovely, as are the gardens and grounds. It was good for my teenage daughter and her friend to experience a slower and quieter way of life though we did have to leave the estate daily so they could let off some steam...This would be a fantastic retreat for a quiet weekend as a couple or especially if you travelling alone as it's a very warm and welcoming place to be.

We appreciate the feedback as we always want to improve any aspects of our guests stay and make it as enjoyable as possible. We would always encourage guests to tell us of any problems at the time, so that we can resolve them as soon as possible.
Clearly the cleaner missed the washed but wet towel left in the washing machine by the previous guests and we will be ensuring they are more vigilant. We will also continue to be mindful of linen and crockery being suitable ~ we are not sure what is meant by ‘discoloured’ towels, perhaps the off white ones were thought to be so. However, we are obviously sorry if these did not meet the expected standard.
We have reviewed our description of the cottage and the photos and found that the points mentioned as missing or not available ~ television license, microwave, dishwasher, for example, should have been known from reading the description. The same with regard to the cottage’s size.
Mobile reception for this postcode is given ‘highest rating’ but obviously thick stone walls of cottages of this age can block reception.
Having looked at it ourselves there is room for the sofa bed to be used without moving table and chairs and we would always be happy to demonstrate this. Guests have told us that they prefer to bring their own choice of DVD’s and there is a hire facility in the local shop.
We included photos of the Centre as occupants of the cottage are welcome to use its larger gardens and also to book use of the swimming pool and pool wet room.
At the end of the day, although we have not had any such comments before, our aim is always to ensure our guests have a refreshing and enjoyable time and we regret if this was not the case this time.

“Quaint and ideal”
Reviewed October 22, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This was a great little cottage. Ideal for a group of ladies as single beds. Lovely touches of milk in fridge and cake on the side. For self catering bedding and towels and even washing up liquid and tea towel. Makes packing easier. Parking right out side. Heating.

“Could not have asked for a more relaxed holiday”
Reviewed June 15, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We booked Owl Cottage for two nights to celebrate our daughter's ninth birthday, and cannot stress how glad we are that we did. The cottage, location and nearby buildings are beautiful. Secure off-road parking, enlosed well-maintained front and rear gardens, every amenity we could hope to find inside, including heaters, fans, hair dryer and fully equipped kitchen. We did not miss the availability of wifi, television programmes or a microwave. The owners could not have been more helpful or friendly, greeting us with a plate of home-made cake and a jug of fresh milk. The grounds surrounding the main house were calm, relaxing and could rival most commercial public gardens. The pool was beautifully warm and a firm favourite of the children. The cottage was ideally situated for many popular attractions, and also an American diner and friendly local pub. We have every intention of staying here again.

It does state clearly in our details that there is no shower only a bath in this cottage. We are sorry that our guests did not understand this. We do say to guests on arrival to ask us if there is anything they need. Had they asked we could have arranged for them to use the shower in the pool area during their stay.
