What our customers are saying about our Large Cottages In The United Kingdom To Rent.

David - verified booking

"S50422 is well equipped and located. The house manager was incredibly helpful and provided a lovely personalised welcome pack. The kitchen is well equipped and the wifi and smart TV were great to have. The house in our opinion could do with some updating in terms of painting. The ceiling is very low in the kitchen, and the shower in the downstairs en-suite bathroom is quite small although works well. There are beams and sloping ceilings upstairs so tall people need to be aware of this!The conservatory is lovely and has a great wood burner – we echo another reviewer’s comments though that this would mean that the downstairs is all incredibly hot in hot weather. The property is well located in terms of being very close to the New Forest and near to the sea and lovely beaches. Nearby are a couple of small towns that have supermarkets and useful shops, and the most local pub (The Plough) serves good food. The road to the pub however is, in our opinion, not one we would walk down as it is a country lane with no lighting and little space to keep out of the road as cars pass. Easy drive to both pubs. The cottage is close to Lymington and Lyndhurst where it is very easy to get to these places.It must be stated however that, contrary to the website description, the property is neither detached nor secluded. Physically attached to the property are working stables and the house is not fully at the end of the lane as stated and the lane is used at all times of the day and into the very late evening by people tending to their horses. You can therefore hear the horses and any related activity from within the house at all hours (including overnight), and in particular this could be heard in the bedrooms. There is also another house within metres of this house also so it is not as secluded as we had hoped for.The garden is lovely although it does look out onto the lane with people driving past as mentioned above therefore it is not private. There are also other houses visible from the garden, and we could hear children / tractors / renovation noises etc. If you are early risers and don’t mind some neighbour noise and are not particularly concerned about people coming and going then this is a lovely location and house; but if, like us, you were specifically looking for a fully detached and secluded peaceful property with no near neighbours and a good level of privacy then we would not recommend this property."

"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."

"Blacksmiths is a lovely cottage decorated and furnished to a high standard. It is comfortable with plenty of room for 4 people although it would sleep 6. The dining area would be more cramped with 6. The kitchen appliances are also of a high standard. However, I would suggest adding some serving dishes, microwaveable cooking dishes and a few more saucepans, especially if catering for 6 people. We had a problem with the heat alarm in the kitchen, which went off about every 15 minutes for no reason on or second evening in the cottage. We had to disable it. I called the emergency number and we had a very quick response. The man who came replaced the battery and asked us to let him know if it didn't resolve the issue. It resolved the problem for two days before it started again. Having rung the cottages office, and electrician came out very quickly and replaced the faulty item. Thank you for dealing with it efficiently.The bathrooms/ensuites are fitted to a high standard as are the bedrooms. The main downside for us was the location. Although the cottage is in a rural, peaceful and central location, it is still a 20 minute plus journey to the main attractions. There are no footpaths from the cottage and no amenities with walking distance. The pub is shown in the information as being under a mile. It is in fact 1.2 miles. This in itself is well within walking distance, but the walk is down a narrow road so particularly pleasant and not suitable for evenings. Having said that, we had a lovely time in S49959 and we would go there again."

"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. S13615 has a lovely friendly feel, and we may return."

"While we enjoyed our stay & made the best of our time........The macorator in the en suite goes off during all hours of the night & is very loud!Advertises free WiFi, your device will load the WiFi symbol but it does not work (didn’t for us!) Advertises bathrobes supplied, we didn’t get any! All the bits of hair/ fluff/ sand etc had been swept under the tables! Beware if taking your dog it does not state online they are not allowed in the carpeted rooms which only leaves the kitchen, entrance hall & conservatory which was too hot as we had fab weather & I imagine in winter it would be the opposite so not a safe option & on the back of the house so unless we sat in the hall or kitchen our pooch was alone!!!Our pooch is part of the family would not have booked here if this had been made clear online!!!Local bar is about a mile away & up quite a steep climb, nearest shops are in Maryport 3.5 miles away. Sky advertised but does not work so not sure what the honesty box for sky sports is all about! Misleading as I / we/ you book on the information supplied, when I phoned to book they even confirmed sky sports worked & you are asked to contribute £ in the honesty box. I don’t usually leave reviews but it’s unfair to advertise aspects which are not available or included especially re the pet. We would not return"
