Booked the holiday, then looked at the reviews! Worried that I'd made a big mistake but I can't understand the dissatisfaction of the complainers.
We have just had a terrifc holiday at Higher Bowden (couple with girls of 10 and 8).
Communication and directions from owners prior to departure excellent - believe the directions and not the sat nav.
We stayed in Courtyard cottage which was immaculate,comfortable, with all the amenities I expected. Washing up liquid etc provided - first time in this type of accomodation for us that we didn't need our own.
Facilities on site are great. Good pool (opening hours for us were fine), great tennis court with decent rackets and balls provided, nice fun putting green - balls and putters provided, just help yourself, games room is nice and well equipped.
Our girls loved the guineapigs and goats and lookeed forward to helping Peter with the feeds.
We had a great welcome and send off and were left to do our own thing in between, signs and notices are not restrictive and log supply is plenty.
Roads approaching the cottages are narrow but this is typical of the area, the walk down to the beech is beautiful.
This is a lovely part of the country with plenty to do, the cottages are great and the owners were perfect hosts.
We had moderate to poor weather but our girls loved it and are desperate for us to go again. Every chance they will get their way.
