RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEWS
Can't understand some of the comments on this property on here- we found it to be nice and comfortable-very nice inside and out- very warm inside-beds were great-ok the cooking equipment could have been better-but who cooks every day on holiday-plenty of pubs etc nearby-good parking spaces- yes the TV was'nt 40"- but again who goes on holiday to watch TV?? we had a great time.
Could be nice BUT
Sign on main road impossible to spot, Issues with cottage and poor attitude from owner spoilt the break somewhat. Dangerously hot towel radiator burnt arm of my son, toilet broke on day 1 and both sons stepped on carpet gripper spikes on stair carpet. I have to say, things do happen but it is all about the response from the owner. Some hosts are happy to welcome guests and other merely tolerate them. The owner should really review the equipment in the cottage, no washing machine, minimal kitchen utensils, 4 guests but only 2 garden chairs?? and no garden umbrella for shade, a tiny TV [ok we weren't there to watch freeview but still].
The general refurbishment of the cottage was to a good standard BUT, can definitely do better. The cottage welcomes dogs [apparently] however they are not allowed anywhere on the grounds except immediately in front of the cottage, so we could not walk through the fields.
An unfriendly feel to the place.
A lovely cottage, lovely area, lovely garden, lovely holiday. The bed was probably one of the most comfortable we have slept in while away from home. The rooms were all very clean and comfortable, and the owners were very helpful.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rookwoods. The cottage is warm and welcoming with lots of books, interesting pictures and nice comfortable chairs - a great place to relax. The garden is enclosed and was much enjoyed by our spaniel. The boot room is incredibly useful especially if you have a dog and walking boots. All in all, a beautiful and compact cottage.
Disappointing at the price
Beautiful main ensuite bedroom with under floor heating. Very comfy beds in both rooms. Shower room and boot room also have underfloor heating. Cottage comfortably warm, we didn't need to light the fire. Hairdryer in the drawer was a nice touch but difficult to use as it has a continental plug. Kitchen poorly equipped with unmatched crockery. Only one sharp knife. Nearly useless tin opener. A soup plate cracked when we put soup in it. A casserole dish would be a good addition. There is a microwave but not simple to use. Hardly any cupboard space and fridge very small with tiny icebox. Extractor fan didn't work but we knew dinner was ready when the fire alarm went off. We opened the windows when cooking.
On the patio a shabby two seater bench and and table. Garden is secure for dogs who enjoyed the new sniffs. Patio door difficult to close and only the outside door in the main bedroom has a handle on the outside.
Steep steps to second bedroom which grandson loved. Owners dogs appeared at the door several times. Other than that the place is quiet.
Area is pretty and the Bell in Castle Hedingham is dog friendly with good food and the Henny Swan is wonderful.
Dogs were not allowed in the paddocks even on leads.
