“Initial expectations looked good images online and from outside property.”
On entering the property we had an issue of not receiving the cot & highchair that was ordered at booking (this was Sykes fault for not providing the information to the owner). However on contact with Sykes the cot & highchair had arrived within a hour. We also reported an issue with the en-suite bathroom as it had a pile of wood chip swept into the side of room, as if work had just been completed, on closer look this pile had around ants running around this and under the pedestal. Sykes contacted the owner and he phoned me and again arrived within the hour with ant spray and catchers. Sadly the vacuum wasn’t picking up properly (on later investigation the hoover was jammed packed and required emptying, the filter required washing as was thick with dust), this the reason the hoover wasn’t working properly.
In the end we decided not to use the en-suite since we had the main bathroom. The only place we could fit the cot was against the en-suite door with the main bedroom door open.
We will say this lodge is not really suitable for anyone with an infant needing a cot, but would be fine for older children who can sleep in the second bedroom.
It is also not suitable for disabled people or anyone who cannot walk far, as you have to walk to the property to get the keys and fob to enter through the gate.
I would say thank you for the fantastic speed of service & a bottle of Prosecco from the owner Stephen, it was a lovely gesture.
Sadly this property wasn’t for us, this won’t stop us returning to the area.
