Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Summer or Winter Flaxmere is the perfect place to unwind and leave the troubles of your particular world at the gate. A warm welcome from Penny, a log fire and acres of beautiful gardens to wander though. Add good friends, great food and a bottle or two of your favourite wine and you have the perfect weekend. Truly, a tranquil oasis for the soul. Thank you Penny, we will be back again soon.

A very clean, simple, warm and tidy cottage situated away from roads in the middle of an amazing garden. We stayed in autumn, and it was so spectacular with patches of red, orange, and green all over the place. There is something touching in watching how leaves are falling to the ground! Definitely will come again.

What a wonderful place this is to stay. The famous gardens are beautiful, and the cottage extremely comfortable. The log burner keep us toasty, and the kitchen has everything you need. Confortable beds, and how wonderful to awake to birdsong each morning. To top things off Penny is a wonderful host. So top rated, and this will be the first of many visits I expect.
