“Very nice accomodation but let down by neighbours”
Reviewed 30 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The accommodation is well laid out and equipped making the stay very easy, perhaps a handle in the bath might be useful just to help with stepping over.
The views from number 3 are nice looking over the fields and across to the chickens who came over to see us most days especially after we put up a bird seed feeder where they found some seed that had been dropped.
The owners live on site but are not in your face, if you need anything they seemed happy to assist and provide suggestions on local places to visit.
Sadly what let the place down and caused our markings is the fact that next door there are I believe four boys of varying ages from around 3 or 4 to mid-teens who like to play in the garden and what’s more their play area is right opposite the patio door. They are often heard riding a quad bike up and down the garden for some time which starts to grate, or just being generally noisy while playing on the swings or slide. We were also were surprised to find they have access to the field over the back where they entered and looked through the patio door if we were inside or seemed to need to stare at us if we sat outside which is not what I expected when I booked the holiday. We eventually found the only option to try and get some peace was to close the patio door and draw the curtains. On the first night I called the owner at 9.20 to ask how much longer the noise may go on for as we thought thee some sort of party going on, fortunately it stopped shortly after. Luckily for us in some ways the children were at school during the day so we only had the issue in the evenings and weekends only.

We thank you for taking the time to write a review. No children were staying on site during the guests stay, however we are a family friendly property and welcome visitors with children. There is a 6ft fence between our property and the neighbouring garden. The neighbours were having a family BBQ on a lovely sunny Saturday evening and their children were enjoying playing in the garden. The field is owned by the local farm and is used for grazing livestock throughout the year, not usually for any other purpose allowing lovely views over the fields. This is a semi rural property and not isolated seclusion. We do feel that the review is not a reflection on what we have to offer at The Maples. The guest staying in No2 during the same period extended their stay.

“Oh my!”
Reviewed 23 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Where to start?! Lovely decorated accommodation with everything that you could possibly need. Even freshly laid eggs! The bed was so comfy we didn't want to get up and the kids loved the deep bath. The owner answer every question promptly. Would love to go back again just returned home feeling relaxed.

“Perfect Accommodation”
Reviewed 12 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Stayed while visiting friends and family in the area. Absolutely fantastic accommodation. Modern, spacious and very clean. We have stayed at many properties in the area and this is by far the best. This is now our default place to stay when in the area.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Stayed here for four nights with my daughter and parents. The location is beautiful and peaceful whilst being convenient for lovely local villages and within easy reach of the coast. The accommodation is stunning. Tasteful quality decoration and fittings and immaculately presented. The owners were welcoming and really helpful. We would recommend this accommodation to anyone and hope we can return again in the near future.

“Best accommodation we have visited ;)”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had a wonderful time at The Maples. The owners where lovely and made us feel very welcome. The accommodation was modern and very clean. The garden was very nice and well kept, but the highlight has to be the chickens, we loved feeding them.
Will definitely return . :)
