.After doing a weekly food shop I went to the Coach house and did not immediately find it as the photo shows the back of the property away from the road , I had tried to ring the owners on the day of arrival to ask where the keys would be left,but had no reply from both contact numbers on the paperwork. After entering the property I noticed the cushions on the furniture and blankets under the coffee table were not tidied or folded .
I put my food in the fridge and noticed the door was broken from the integrated unit and the fridge did not seem to be vetry clean but shrugged this off. I then went upstairs to put my clothes away and saw that none of the beds had been made up and the sheets had not been changed from the previous tenants. I then went into the bathroom and all the dirty towels were thrown on the floor. Going back to the bedroom I looked in the wardrobe and saw there was some clothes still hung up. I then thought I must be in the wrong accommodation. After checking it was the correct place I tried ringing the numbers again and left a message on both of them with no reply. There was also a dirty washing up cloth in the sink and the worktops needed cleaning at that point I rang Sykes cottages (who were very helpful) to advise them of the position and they finally managed to contact the owners as time went on I could no longer wait for it to be sorted so I told Sykes to cancel the booking and refund the fee which they could not do until 9 pm as they need to give the owners time to rectify the issue, if they had answered their phones when I rang them lunchtime it would have been rectified.! I then had to try find alternative accommodation which I did but was a hotel that was a lot more expensive and the food I had bought for the week had to be disposed of as I did not have a fridge freezer to store it in so all in all this have cost me a fair few pounds a lot of time and a lot of stress. finally got into the hotel at 10pm!!
The Coach House is situated deep in the Welsh countryside with fantastic views, but civilisation (including a dog-friendly pub) is a just a short distance away. The two-bedroomed cottage is well equipped including wood-burner, washing machine & dishwasher, and comfortably furnished. We didn't have the pleasure of meeting the owners as they were away when we stayed, but we found Mrs Crossley to be extremely helpful in tracking down my daughter's macbook external hard-drive (which had somehow got mixed up in the bedsheets & sent to the laundry) and returning it to us by special delivery. We'll definitely be back!
We didn't want to leave :(
This is by far the best place we have stayed in for a very long time. The kids loved popping in the pool, giving attention to the friendly three dogs of the owners and playing Frisbee by the lake. I loved the peace and quiet in such a beautiful place, so beautiful that we are already looking into when we can come again.
The cottage has two great sized bedrooms. Plenty of hot water. Open plan downstairs which is bigger then the photos show. It is clean and the beds are really comfortable also.
It was great looking out the window to Guinea fowl, horses, ducks and cows!
The location is a little out the way which is what I loved more than anything. It took around 1hr 20 mins to get over to snowdonia national park, but a short drive away you will find a supermarket, lovely pub, petrol garage and pretty much all the basics you need.
The owners are really friendly. We couldn't ask for more and we will see you again soon.
Our thanks to the owners of the Coach House for a wonderful stay. I've booked a lot of self-catering cottages over the last 20 years and this one gets my vote as best yet. Beautiful house, lovely light open plan living and kitchen area with floor to ceiling windows affording a stunning outlook over the duck pond and gardens. Beautiful surrounding countryside and well kept extensive gardens in which to walk the dog. Woodburning stove was a treat to have lit in the evening after a hard days walk on Offa's Dyke and the property is very well situated for walking the northern end of the trail.
Perfect retreat. We were there during Hurricane Barney which was whipping through the trees at 80mph outside. Listening to the wind howling while curled up in front of the log fire was magic. The owners are two of the nicest people you will ever meet. We chose this particular cottage because it was listed as dog friendly, fortunately there were no signs of dog in the cottage at all, it was immaculate in every way!
