    "We had a family celebration at birch wood and it was perfect. Plenty of space and great sociable areas for a big family get together. The couple who mind the property were very nice and helpful. Would book again in the future!!"

    "Had a great time."

    "This was our second time at visiting birch wood , and we were highly disappointed there were 9 of us in total , and considering how much we enjoyed it previously it’s a shame that we didn’t this time , due to unhelpful and miserable caretakers who were rude and unapproachable, we had problems with the fridge , resorting in another fridge being sent in . We had problems with the televisions , we found the cleanliness had deteriorated extremely in comparison to our last visit , there were dead flys all over the floors and balls of dust . The equipment in the kitchen has seen better days and again wasn’t clean to begin with , most of the saucepan handles were falling off and needed renewing . The jacuzzi in the main bedroom upstairs was not working , we had work ment sent out during our stay again not acceptable . As this was a holiday and a family get together . The games in the play room were all over the place not in correct boxes , pieces missing and unusable . For the price we payed for our stay we most defiantly will not be returning ."

    "We had a lovely stay at Birchwood at the end of August 2019, aided by a heatwave. The accommodation is very big and spacious and was ample room for our extended family of 8 (3 kids, 2 parents, 3 grandparents). The grounds are lovely, its good the garden is fully enclosed and the kids are safe, the games room and toys / equipment for the kids was greatly appreciated.There are however, a number of things that could be improved in the property - and should be improved based on the charge out cost. One of the two swings in the garden was thread bare and we had to tie it up to prevent the children using it as it was unsafe. The cleaning of the property needs to be improved, we had to bottom the kitchen before first use, and the whole house needs a good deep clean. The sofas and mattresses are uncomfortable and need replacing. However, the worst issue for us was the presence of insects and flying ants. We were using the downstairs double and put our 3 year old twins in the down stairs twin room next door as I was worried they may fall down the stairs in the night. The twin room had hundreds of ants all around the window, carpet and curtains. We caught them and disposed of them, and had to spray the area with multipurpose cleaner as this was the only thing to hand. The following day a few more appeared and so we did the same. They never returned after that. I was very surprised though that they were there in the first place, especially if the house had been cleaned just before our arrival. And obviously having my children in that room was worrying. It may have been the time of year, or the heat, but I am sure they should have been seen by the cleaners or caretaker before our arrival.None of this spoilt our holiday, and we would consider returning as the house is lovely. But I really do hope the owners take notice of the repeated issues that people are raising, as nothing seems to be improving, (ovens have no dial instructions, poor cleanliness, lack of kitchen equipment for large parties etc). The washing machine was not very good either, or the dishwasher, pots came out half cleaned. The downstairs bathroom got soaked when using the shower and could do with a cubical or curtain and tray. The ice machine did not work, the BBQ was dirty (most likely the previous occupants - we did clean and use it and it worked fine). The play equipment in the garden badly needs replacing. it is in a nice quiet area in the countryside, just a short ride from Skegness and Ingoldmells - although parking is approximately £8 per day per car (we spent almost £100 on parking through the week). The open top bus rides are great, the outdoor swimming pool was fab, the indoor one has a flume slide, the free paddling pool (fairy dell) is lovely, Arnold palmer crazy golf was good, and we had a fun 2 hours at the seal sanctuary. Fantasy island theme park is great (online wristbands are cheapest), and Hardy's farm is a good day out. The Welcome Inn pub down the road was lovely, it has a big beer garden with playground for the kids, and the food and service was great."

    "The property could be fabulous but is lacking in care. All previous complaints haven’t been addresssed."
    Chelsey ‐ 27 Apr 2019
    "Overall the house is amazing and for the money you get much more than you expect. A few things like the downstairs shower, the ovens and the spa bath need looking at and the overall cleanliness wasn’t amazing but for the money we paid we weren’t disappointed."
    Judith ‐ 23 Apr 2019
    "We found this cottage very comfortable for our needs but unfortunately some cupboards in kitchen were dirty and fridge wasn't clean. Even though it was advertised they had wi fi we were unable to access it and the managers were no help which was unfortunate as my husband needed the wi fi for his photography. The ovens weren't easy to use as the indications for the settings were rubbed away. The heating was on constantly and at some points during our week it became unbearably hot. The owner needs to spend some money and time on maintenance. After reading previous comments it seems they all had the same problems and these have not been addressed."
    James ‐ 21 Apr 2019
    "We had a great holiday at skegness, the cottage was amazing, great value for the money we paid and very comfortable to sleep all the guests"
    EILEEN ‐ 15 Apr 2019
    "Lovely property in a good position for visiting g the area comfortable and well equipped, helpful caretakers on site."
    Adrian ‐ 16 Jan 2019
    "Great place for a large family weekend break?"
    Kevin ‐ 5 Nov 2018
    "The property is excellent for our reunion party, but having been there for the past 2 years the property is tired and in need of some TLC. The kitchen equipment isn't adequate for the amount of people staying there and both cookers could do with being looked at.Overall the house and location are good"
