Nice property, and quiet country surrounds.
For a 5-bedroom property you would expect a good kitchen facilities:
Kitchen bin cover mechanism is opened by hand causing germs to spread & as a last resort removed the cover & kept the bin opened, suggest to replace with a pedal bin.
Cups & bowls in kitchen are not well washed & needed to be washed before our use.
Dishwasher falling out & needed fixing to the sides
Fridge is too small and not fit for a 5-bedroom house, location of the microwave above the fridge is bad as the heat from it coming down on the fridge
Kitchen is very dark in daylight.
Hooks in bedrooms on the doors are broken
Water pressure for taking a shower is not adequate, that means if one person is having a shower and another person open the shower, the water pressure drops to a trickle.
Conservatory Wicker chairs pin nails pluck clothes - tired
Broadband for uploading is very very poor, really poor.
Hot tub is nice & maintained but the cover handle clips are broken and someone used cable ties, as a temporary solution.
Road leading to property is bad for city cars, not asphalt or even.
Just got back from Five Elements today had a lovely week in this beautiful huge farmhouse 8 of us in total and loads of room for us all, the men loved the pool table kept them amused for hours, and the hot tub was very relaxing, took two little dogs and they loved it very safe for them in the enclosed garden, thanks for having us was a lovely week.
Just left the farmhouse after 3 days away and I can?t fault it. The place is huge! There were 6 of us altogether and it was fantastic. Hot tub was a welcomed end to our adventurous days. Had a lovely welcome package with local biscuits, apple juice & tea. One of our party bumped into the owners on the way in, other than that we didn?t see them - no invasion of privacy what so ever. Sky in the living room was great! Will definitely be back again.
Very intrusive owners on site
I was in the party that has recently visited this farmhouse. The owners said they needed to regularly check the hot tub which was fair enough but the owner entered the farmhouse at least three days of our week saying she needed to 'check the internet'.
While we were there we unfortunately had a bereavement in the family and the family member came down to join us because all of the family were on this week away. The owner on entering the house YET AGAIN noticed we were over our number and we were all asked to vacate the house immediately. When we refused, as we had two days left, and explained why we were over the number, they threatened to call the police. There was no sympathy and understanding. They then demanded extra money from us so we could stay. This situation made the bereaved family member very uncomfortable and felt it was all their fault when all they wanted to do was be with us all.
If you want privacy DONT book this place as the owner is very intrusive and ' popping ' in all the time. They have no sympathy and understanding just money grabbing people.
Had this property booked with 9 others people and unfortunately the weekend we had booked we had horrendous snow fall which meant there was a red weather warning out and we were unable to leave our road to it being closed, to which we rang Sykes cottages to ask if we could change the date- to which we were told they would contact the owners to see if this was possible, half an hour later we received a phone call from Sykes to tell us they have spoken to the owners and they have refused to change the date even to an out of peek time !!!! I think this is absolutely appalling that they could not help us out in this situation and were happy to take our money knowing our circumstances, the people running this house are money oriented grabbers and hope karma come back to bite them!!! I feel they could of done more to help us knowing that it was out of our hands and there was no physical way of us getting down there safely!!! I feel we have been totally ripped off by this couple and hope no one else suffers the loss of money that we did!!! Think wisely before booking this property because they offer no help but happy to take your money !!!
