"This is a grand old house in a splendid location and my review is made more in sadness than in anger. What might have once been described as rustic chic, certainly as far as the exterior is concerned, has sadly been allowed to decline through a lack of maintenence. Much of the timberwork at the rear (sea side) is peeling and the decking is in real need of a good jet-wash, repair and maintenence; the bottom step onto the deck is loose and is a hazard. When we were there, the gardens were overgrown and unkempt and planters sad, weedy and dead. I do realise that this is fairly early in the season but even so...On arrival at 3.10pm, we were ticked off by the cleaning lady (who is in fact a very pleasant and helpful person) because she said we were early -our details said 3.00pm and she said it should be 4.00pm. We hung around until 3.30 before unloading the cars.The interior decor of the rooms was good and the beds comfortable. The kitchen area was good and very big, the wooden cupboards being 19th century are in need of a good rub-down and wax polish. There is a broken floor tile by the sink which lifts in one corner when you stand on it and anyone with unprotected feet walking by at that point would receive a considerable injury from the shards. Our daughter was not able to operate the spa-bath in the on-suite bathroom. One of the shower wastes was partially blocked allowing water to flow onto the floor, which soaked my wife's wedding clothes, dripped through to the ceiling below and onto confetti which was on the kitchen table. All in all, not a happy experience. I did speak to the owner who was very sympathetic to our plight but disappointed that we had to ask for a gesture of recompence from Bookings.com. I feel something should have been proffered.I do hope that the proper resources are put into this property; we would love to have it. If it was brought up to scratch (we operate our own self-catering apartments in Devon) then this could be an absolute gem."

"A really lovely cottage, generously equipped and nicely furnished. It easily accommodated our group of 9 (aged 61 to 12 years old) and we had a great week. Beds surpassed our expectations, really comfortable with good linen and soft duvets. Kitchen was spacious with excellent white goods and well equipped. Fabulous dining room and spacious lounge. Kids liked the cellar games room. Nice modern showers and plenty of toilets for large groups. My only gripe was the sofas in the living room have seen better days (cushions are quite hard) and the benches on the main terrace are giving up the ghost. No problem, we took chairs out, but the rickety nature was a bit troubling. Note - there is virtually no mobile phone signal, but wifi was good and the owner has provided a land line.At the beginning of the week the views (outside terraces on 3 levels, fantastic views from 4 bedrooms) were great - sea, boats, white cliffs and France - but haze and then thick fog removed the view for the last 3 days! It was still atmospheric though, and we could hear the fog horns as the boats approached Dover Harbour.Hard work to walk to a pub, we didn't. However a short drive down to the beach and the Coastguard did excellent food, and the village store had all the basics (need to drive there really). Loads to do in the vicinity and some excellent walks across the cliffs. A bit alarming in thick fog though! Yes there are lot of steps, but we all managed fine and had a fabulous week. The Cottage has a lovely friendly feel, and we may return."

"We had a lovely stay at the Lions Retreat at the October half term. The house is spacious, comfortable and well-located with an enormous garden bordered by a stream. The stream was only shallow when we visited and hazardous only with very young children.The owners were very pleasant and helpful.However there were a few things about the property that could be improved to make the stay even better.The dishwasher is actually a pub-style glass washer and required constant filling and unpacking as it held only a few items at a time. There were no instructions when we got there, but Mike kindly came up to the house having printed some out.There were a few items of equipment that would have been very useful. As a family group with 4 children we ate in most evenings but it would have been great to have a potato peeler and a large tea-pot. Also a small sharp knife.We struggled to get any heat in the upstairs rooms despite turning up the thermostat . Fortunately it wasn't too cold and we managed without. Downstairs was heated by underfloor heating which was very responsive and comfortable.The quality of the fittings and furnishings was good, plenty of towels and comfortable beds. The jacuzzi was excellent and easy to use. The laundry room contained an extra fridge and freezer . the fridge was really useful to accommodate our overflow of milk etc.All in all a very pleasant stay but it could have been much beter with just a few little improvements."

"We had an amazing time at The Cottage. The grandparents and dogs had the ground floor bedroom, teenagers in the attic and everyone else in between! It was nearly perfect for our extended family holiday. We had 3 under 5's who adored the games room (though we did hold our breath everytime they went up or down the stairs!). The views were amazing and we all loved sitting and listening to the sound of the waves.Yes, in some areas the decoration was a little tired - but with 5 children and 2 dogs this wasn't a problem for us, it just made us feel comfortable in using everything. The beds were comfortable and there was everything we needed and more provided. The only slight negatives are:The twin beds are now downstairs with a double in the attic - not as described and not what we had planned for.The garden is not dog safe. We moved some furniture around to make the terrace safe but had to stay close when they were in the garden or they would escape!Lack of teaspoons! Everything else was there - glasses, electric whisks blender etc but we would have liked another dozen teaspoons!!! All in all we had a great time and the house was really lovely - we could loose hours watching the view!"

"Very private grounds. Enjoyed hot tub and games room. TV adequate size and quality. Liked the large dining table as well. We had 8 in our party.When we arrived we all got stuck in to cleaning up, a bit dusty, lacked attention to detail in the cleanliness ( I have been to worse!) kitchen utensils, plates/pans all washed before use. Not sure why you need to have an industrial dishwasher that you have to watch and drain yourself- we didn't bother using it. The cooker took some getting used to as well. The upstairs bedrooms and bathrooms were particularly difficult to negotiate with steep eaves- you had to bend over to use the sink and I'm only 5'2. The shower door would stick and wobble. One of the showers wouldn't work properly. I was disappointed with the cleanliness and some of the equipment however the space was excellent, indoor and outdoor."
