We did a lot of research looking for the perfect cottage to spend a relaxing family holiday before we opted for Ashdene. All I can say is we absolutely made the right choice. What a place!
The house is spotless with everything you need (and more) to enjoy the week. The open plan living space is lovely, the kitchen extremely well equipped, the bedrooms spacious and comfortable. The added benefit of the pool, hot tub and games room just added that extra something. We used the pool every day and it stayed warm and clean throughout.
You can tell the owners care about this place. It feels "loved" if that makes sense. Having stayed in several holiday let properties in the past - you often tend to see slightly "tired" or old furniture or fittings. Not so here. Everything is in excellent condition and the whole place, inside and out, is literally like a home-from-home.
The location was also very good. We went on several day trips to local towns and attractions. Some of the local narrow roads can be hair-raising but it all adds to the experience!!
I always like to give a balanced review so as not to come across as "gushing" - but on this occasion, I really don't have any negatives to report.
The whole process from booking onwards was easy and the level of customer service was, again, up there with the best. Thank you for making our holiday all that we had hoped it would be.
We stayed here for 7 nights as a family of 12. Only got back today. We all had a great time especially the children. The house is spotless. The house provided everything we needed. The pool is lovely and warm and as mentioned before very clean. The jacuzzi was great. The children never got bored as played most of the day in the pool and spent the evening playing pool, table tennis and on the games in the games room. The owners answered all e mails immediately. The house was in a lovely village setting with supermarkets a five minute drive away. We have no negatives about this holiday only positives.
