We were fortunate to get a late booking for Dinkley Cottage. It was perhaps the best UK cottage in which we have stayed, especially the open plan lay-out of kitchen/dining area/sitting area which created a real sense of space. We also liked the garden area at the rear of the cottage. In the light of the Covid-19 situation, we did not have any direct contact with the staff team, but they were very helpful and professional during the booking process and in dealing with the need to re-set the TV in the cottage. Dinkley Cottage is in a fantastic location with walks right from the front door or ...more
Communications before arriving (and during, via text, when we had queries) was top notch. The cottage is finished to a very high standard and the space used very well. Six of us stayed and loved the hot tub, the open plan downstairs and the very quiet location. Each room had a beautiful en-suite wet room with shower, and the master also has a bath. Beds were super comfortable and large. Everything was spotlessly clean and the covid arrangements were sensible and reassuring. The beautiful café at Stydd Gardens was amazing, too, and just five minutes walk down the road. Ribchester itself was a h...more
This is our second stay at Sherburne Cottage and it was just as wonderful as the first. Spotlessly clean, well appointed and very comfortable - it's an absolute gem of a place.
Great property, spotlessly clean. The property is excellent, great beds and en-suite wet rooms. My only small area of constructive critisism would be to give a bit more attention to the outdoors areas in the gardens and top the hot tub up as the water level was quite low on the last day. But overall 9.5/10!
We didnt have to meet anyone to open the door for us. The keys was in a secure safety box which we was given the code to. The Cottage was very clean and we had no issues with all the facilities.
Having spent a week at the holiday homes, we had a fantastic time. A great peaceful location, a good sized cottage with great features. We have an (almost) 1 year old daughter and we spent days visiting local villages, walking and eating. Once our daughter was asleep, an hour or so in the hot tub with a cold drink and then in beside the hot log burner, what more could you want and ask for. Great value for what we got. My only suggestions would be a few little things, that didn't take away from our enjoyment but may do for others (who are a little more picky): The plaster board was cracke...more
I recently attended Somerwood with 12 of my friends and it's fair to say we had a fantastic time! The house was immaculate upon arrival and we were over the moon with the facilities on site. We all specifically enjoyed the games room, tennis court and hot tub where we spent most of our time, while also taking full advantage of the BBQ and kitchen facilities to enjoy meals together. We will definitely re-book for 2021!
A lovely weekend the house is lovely and very practical a great place for a long relaxing weekend. The hot tub in particular was a lovely treat for everyone. The sofa in the main lounge is overdue an overhaul but remains comfortable. Games room great fun for all . Local pubs are friendly and food at Ribchester Arms fabulous! The Manager at the White Bull was very welcoming and friendly . We are looking to book again for February in one of the properties.
Couldnt ask for more at the property.Had breakfast down the road called the Stydd both mornings which was lovely.On the evening dined at the local pub The Ribchester.
