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.

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.

Poor support
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 !!!

Beautiful House in Rural Location
This is a lovely house that has a modern yet cosy feel. It has everything you need for your holiday (a well stocked kitchen, brownies and wine on arrival, logs and firefighters for log burner etc). The beds are comfortable but I have only given 4 stars due to the sofa. It is a wooden base with cushions on top. As we spent a lot of evenings in the cosy lounge, a comfortable sofa really would have made a big difference. Hot tub, pool table and board games were lovely additions to the house (even if the pool table is slightly uneven!). We've had a lovely stay and would recommend to others.
