“A Perfect Stay at the Perfect Rental.”
Reviewed 22 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

From the 5th of October to the 12th of October we had a marvellous siblings stay at The Barn & Stables, which was perfect for our needs. We all left this fine property a little bit sadder. The property itself was a gem!! The space ,inside and outside, was great and the bedrooms were all very nice ( especially the master with a wonderful en-suite), everybody loved the kitchen which was very spacious and had had all the necessary appliances (which all worked!!). Also the dining area was just right for our needs ( the eight of us ate very comfortably there) as was the lounge area. All in all a perfect place to rent for the eight of us. The nearby Farm Shop was very handy and the people there very nice and helpful as were the couple that did the spacious garden and put out all the rubbish for us. The location was ideal for our excursions and visits. Thank you Character Cottages Guest Services for letting us such a perfect rental which I/we would recommend to any would-be tenants. The owners have a peach of a property in The Barn & Stables, I/we couldn't fault it. Thank you again and good luck in the future. This review is based on the comments of all of us and the happy week we had there.

“Stunning house in a lovely rural location”
Reviewed 26 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We were 8 abuts looking for a weekend rental in a rural location and The Barn & Stables fitted the requirements very well. The house is stunning both inside and out, the bedrooms are all spacious as are the living areas. The kitchen is large and well equipped, we cooked breakfast and a full Sunday roast for all 8 of us.

There were very few negative comments most of which have been voiced in other reviews but the bath towels are small (not bath sheets), thin and could really do with replacing with new larger ones. Also there is only one set per bathroom so we tumble dried them after each use.

The dishwashers (yes there are two) were a little temperamental and didn't wash properly but this really wasn't an issue.

The two living spaces, one downstairs and one upstairs are comfortable and spacious and give great views over the surrounding countryside.

As previously mentioned there were a few cobwebs in the high spaces, which the house has lots of, suggesting that only the more easily reachable spaces and surfaces had been cleaned before we arrived. Again this wasn't an issue and is understandable for a property in this type of location.

Over all we were more than happy with our stay and would throughly recommend this property. There is the added bonus of the farm shop right next door that also has a takeaway and sells a range of fruit, veg and local meats, homemade frozen meals and a host of other local produce.

“So close to perfect but needs more effort”

On arrival the house is absolutely stunning and on first impressions it's a jaw dropper. However, when settling in you soon notice niggly annoying things that with a little TLC would have made this a 5 star experience. It's the attention to detail that lets it down. We had to vacuum every room (which is quite time consuming!) to remove cobwebs and the literally 10's and 10's of corner spiders, leaving us questioning when the last "deep clean" was done. Each window had at least 2-3 spiders lurking and there are a lot of windows!! The bed linen and towels were all perfectly clean but there was no "luxury" feel or special touches like you would expect from a property like this. There was no spare supply of towels, and for a weeks stay I would have loved to change my towel. On the surface, it's clean, tidy, modern and well equipped but then you find that when serving dinner, there are no serving dishes. Cleaning supplies are ok, they'll help you get through the first day but there is no salt for example. Supplies seem to be quite random and what people have left after their stay rather than maintained by the owners.

You soon realise that the house is in need of a real "deep" clean which perhaps it hasn't had for some time. The rugs and sofa's need to be cleaned properly with the cooking equipment, plates, drawers, cutlery etc all needed to be washed before use. The dishwasher didn't work throughout our stay which made it hard work when washing up each day for 8 people!

The house is beautiful and we would stay again, but be prepared to be a little dissapointed when it comes to detail and cleanliness. We've stayed in various houses and cottages throughout the UK and although this is up there in terms of size and wow factor, we can't help but feel a little disappointed by day to day living and general comfortableness of the house.

Be aware that the Wifi is touch and go and as long as you bring your marigolds and own towels, you'll love your stay!

Management Response

Character Cottages, as a marketing agency, does not look after or maintain any cottages.

The following is written by the owner's appointed property manager:

"We always place great importance on the feedback of our guests and it was very disappointing to receive this review, as the guests made no contact whatsoever with the management, during entire their stay. Had they done so, we could have visited immediately to verify their comments, and rectify any issues without delay or disruption. The guests did leave a little note to say that the dishwasher didn’t work for them, but that was only on the day of their departure and, as the next guests were due in a matter of hours, left no time to be able to arrange an inspection or repair of the machine; this was neither fair to the managers, or the incoming guests.

The property was prepared a couple of days before these guests arrived and, being a rural home, one could expect to see an occasional spider or web. All homes are checked for cobwebs, but in the main spider season, new ones can appear in a very short time. Again, had this been mentioned at any point, we could have visited to verify and remove. As for having to wash the crockery and cutlery before use, we find this difficult to believe. Unfortunately, some guests do hide dirty plates or cutlery in amongst the clean ones, rather than wash them up and, whilst it is impossible to check every item in every kitchen, a basic check is completed during each preparation. Due to time constraints, we have to rely on guests cleaning the equipment properly before putting it away, but will make more time to check they have done so.

There have always been a couple of serving dishes (including one multi-compartment) in the kitchen. As per the website description, we provide initial supplies of the following items for every booking; tea, coffee, sugar, toilet rolls, kitchen roll, tin foil, cling film, scourer, j cloth, washing up liquid, hand soaps, dishwasher tablets and bin bags. The dishwasher salt and rinse aid are always topped up during each preparation of the property. This is advertised as a self-catering home, not a hotel, so one could reasonably expect to have to purchase any food/consumable items outside of those provided by the owners.

All guests are provided with one hand and one bath towel for their stay. Should these guests have wished to refresh their towels, there is a washing machine and tumble dryer at the property. Looking at the other review posted by this guest about a different property, they also mention disappointment about having one towel each, and lack of kitchen equipment. Perhaps, if something ‘special’ is required by them during their stays, they ask the manager/owners in advance if it will be available for them, rather than have unreasonable expectations and posting subsequent negative comments"

This property is probably the most spacious you will ever rent, with ample room for children to play and adults to relax.
The master suite is stunning, although a door on the en suite to allow a little privacy would be nice.
All 4 en suite/bathrooms were well equipped with ample hot water for all quests at all times.
The bed linen was crisp and clean and the towels were okay, although on our next visit we would take a couple of bath sheets.
The Kitchen seemed to be well equipped but as we did not cook this is just an observation.
The outside areas were as spacious as the interior with plenty of seating, a hot tub would put the icing on the cake.
We felt the property would benefit from an intensive clean to include the inside of cupboards and drawers. The interior decorations are also looking a little tired, but this would not stop us returning.
The farm shop is well stocked and the breakfast in the cafe is not to be missed.

We were blown away just arriving at this lovely house. My sister had arrived before us that evening and so the house was lit up in all its glory!
Inside we couldn´t stop gasping and sighing at all the lovely rooms. The kitchen is huge and excellently equipped but the highlight was the master bedroom which just takes seeing to believe in.
Our only tiny complaint was that the wonderful master bedroom turned out to be very cold at night due to its very high ceiling and stone wall. Remember we were there during the deep mid winter.... (Christmas week) But if you come equipped with thick pyjamas it´s no problem! We adjusted the heating so it would stay warm during the daytime and then it was fine.
We were there with teenagers who loved the free wifi.
