Stylishly furnished and decorated to a very high standard, this fabulous Yorkshire cottage has an open-plan living area, comfortable, spacious rooms, decking wrapping around the cottage offering countryside views and a fabulous hot tub. On the farm, collect your own eggs for breakfast and admire the llamas, and pony rides can be arranged locally. The village of Hinderwell offers excellent amenities with local shops, several pubs and a bistro, whilst the sea is only a ten minute walk.

Amanda, August 2021

What a disappointment! Where do I start...! The lodge was not cleaned to an adequate minimum standard. Thick dust everywhere that clearly has been there for some time. We have photos to prove. Dust mites galore! Clearly no cleaning of kitchen cupboards and areas in kitchen. Some kind of nocturnal animal/rodent living in the cavity wall and floorboards kept me awake at night. The owner is saying it is a bird!!!! Never heard of a nocturnal bird living in the floorboards! Perhaps if I wasn't kept awake from the stench in the ensuite bathroom I might have slept through, that way not reporting hearing scratching in the walls and floorboards. Stench from bathrooms varied from strong overpowering sewer smell followed my strong smell of damp! We were also caught up in the dispute with the owner and her ex-partner who owns the land her lodge is on. Wooden barriers were put up to prevent us parking whilst we were present in the lodge. The hostility could be clearly felt, this is not a healthy environment for anyone, let alone my young children. The owner confirmed we would get some money back as she agreed our stay had been poor (although didn't agree with all of our complaints) and asked us to provide a statement to her solicitor about her ex husband. The owner was only concerned about seeking revenge on her ex partner not about dealing with our complaints. When asked her to confirm how much will we get back she has now confirmed she will not be giving us anything. Please do not be fooled by this women. We left this property early as it was horrendous! All of our clothes have had to washed, even though we didn't wear them all, as they stink from the damp from the lodge. Terrible!
