Wonderful cottage,
Had a fantastic time here, very much child friendly, all precautions have been taken to ensure the children come to no harm, made the stay more enjoyable & relaxing not having to worry to much about the children hurting themselves. Cottage was fully equipped for all your needs. Local pub meals where faultless, for us all 16 of us, local place to visit has got to be the Big pit, & very moving. ( & it's free to get in ) & a cheese shop in the same town, Over all you won't be disappointed. Many thanks to Lisa, & Anthony Hicks.

Loved it !!
Wow what can I say, great correspondence from start to finish. It was a beautiful house set in a gorgeous location. The kids loved the swimming pool and we loved the hot tub, so much so we hardly left the property except to go on lovely walks. I would highly recommend x

Amazing House
We spent 3 nights in Treetops celebrating mine and my wife?s 50th Birthday, as soon as we walked in we knew we were in for a good time,the rooms were all good sizes comfortable and clean, we made good use of everything the kitchen was used to its max as one of our friends who loves to cook and had everything he needed to feed seventeen of us morning, noon and night. I don?t think the hot tub and pool was ever empty, and the younger members loved the man cave. There was plenty of instructions around the house to help you to have great stay, and plenty of pool towels for all the guests to use. We didn?t really leave the house only to stock up on some food items. The views from all over the house were breathtaking and I?ve got to say that we had a Birthday weekend that me and my wife will never forget. We had good contact with the owners who were very helpful and had our full bond refunded with no problems, we are hoping to return again next.

Same issue as previous review! Issue with the bond plus issues at the property
Treetops has the potential to be a lovely place but the owners let it down. Firstly the heating is restricted to 3 time a day and is off all night, not a problem during the summer months but we went in december! the owners said that there is a log burner and a oil filled radiator. I don't think we were going to keep putting wood on a fire all night long! The oil radiator did nothing!. The tumble dryer was broken, water dripping from a ceiling and a slat broken in the bed all of which i have pictures of. We contacted the owner but nothing was done. We would have let all of this go if it wasn't for the owner taking a large part of our deposit off us. They charged us for extra cleaning time as we apparently left the property so dirty which simply is NOT true. Then also took money off for a microwave plate we apparently chipped, they have an inventory but we didn't get one on arrival! They charged us for bedding, pillow cases and towels that apparently they were not able to get stains out of! Interesting that the choose to use bright white towels! they sent us pictures before they were laundered? But not after? I would not recommend staying here to anyone

Lovely place shame about the inventory
Ideal for our large family group celebrating a 70th birthday. However we had an issue with the bond - you have to deposit ?400. The owner has sent a list of deductions including for 7 missing teaspoons and some jars none of the 10 adults saw. There was no inventory when we checked in. Refused to send us before and after copies. Refused to answer further emails because "too much time spent on this". Some of our party have suggested it is a way of supplementing rental income, I couldn't possibly comment.
