Cottage Review:  

Stayed here with my family during august 2020 and looking at previous reviews will take your money but not improve the property at all. All the issues listed in other comments were exactly as described during our visit. I feel 3 star is very generous for this property and will not return, i would advise anyone planning to stay here to look elsewhere.

Cottage Review:  

We have just came back from this trip as a group of 8. We were told to arrive later and leave earlier as the cottage must be deep cleaned due to COVID.... I do not believe this cottage was deep cleaned prior to our arrival, something which I don't believe is allowed to happen under the current circumstances and I think all bookings should be cancelled until the owners comply with the current government advice. The benches and tables were sticky and upon looking under the sofa and cushions it was covered in dust and crumbs from previous visitors. There were also cobwebs in most rooms once we looked.

Other issues:

Tv didn't work in bedroom downstairs

3

No frying pan

All showers leaked horrendously. My daughter came into the bathroom looking for me whist I was showering and slipped landing on her back (no major injury thankfully)

The bed downstairs was very well worn... we called it the banana bed

The sofa is so old and worn there is no leather left on the arms... we sat on blankets

The patio door is a struggle to open and once you do the handle falls off (this has also been mentioned on previous reviews)

There was a storm during our stay. When coming into the garden the fence pole fell over narrowly hitting children on it descent.Upon looking at it it had clearly fallen before and was stuck back up with sealant...

Not all of the bedroom doors close

The owner doesn't seem to reply to any complaints so thought it was best to warn others as we originally filtered our search for a property by looking at trip advisor scores of over 4 stars.... something this property is not

Cottage Review:  

Stayed here for a bank holiday weekend with group of friends, cottage was nice and we enjoyed our weekend stay. My only area for improvement are that there was no coal or firefighters for BBQ, no extra wood for fire which was main heat source for cottage, and not enough toilet roll or dishwasher tablets. I would of expected these at least as essentials for the price paid and for ten people you would expect there to be enough of these essentials. I expected to bring everything else but not all this aswel. We ended up spending extra and getting all these thing

Cottage Review:  

We found our overall experience in this cottage to be excellent. The accommodation is very well laid out, spotlessly clean & tidy and a nice size throughout. It is perfectly situated for Countryside walks and Alton Towers is only a few minutes away. Our only very small gripe was that without the open fire in the living area going, the one storage heater in the room was not adequate to heat the room fully.

Cottage Review:  

Met by Sarah at the cottage she was lovely and very helpful. Cottage was lovely ideal for the 6 adults and 2 children who stayed. Lovely coal fire which in fact was so hot we had to let it go out. Anyone wanting to go to alton towers it was a 5 minute walk from the house so didn't need to queue for parking. Nice pubs near by but also had compact kitchen which was excellent for making meals as well . Whole family enjoyed stay and would definitely go back again . Gill Durham
