We have previously stayed in the log cabins at Greetham Valley (on two occassions) and thoroughly enjoyed our stays. This summer we decided to book the Mill Cottage as it has an enclosed garden, very handy for our young family and we wanted to be a little more secluded from the log cabin area. We were dissappointed with the Mill Cottage on a number of issues.
1) The house smelt of dogs and the carpet and rugs had a lot of dog hair on them. We used to hoover provided to try to resolve the issue but that made things even worse as the hoover stank of dogs too.
2) The oven never worked.
3) The BBQ was too dirty to use
4) We stayed for two weeks and the rubbish was not collected the entire time we were there. At the end of the two weeks the bins smelt and were overflowing with rubbish. Not very nice or acceptable.
On the plus side the Cottage was well equiped for self catering and we loved the enclosed garden for the kids and the stream to play poo sticks in, it is situated in a beautiful location and is very secluded. This could be an excellent venue to stay I think it just needs a little TLC and attention to detail.
When we reported these issues to the receptionist she didnt seem overly bothered about any of these issues. Not what I would expect in light that the Cottage is 800+ pounds per week in July.
