Very pretty cottage, nicely looked after and very clean.
Laura the owner was very responsive with a couple of queries we had.
A great time was had by 10 of us celebrating my parents’ birthdays.
We would thoroughly recommend staying here
Nice house, great space but some very essential elements missing
Great weekend spend with friends in this lovely house, good space for the required 3 families
Kitchen: very nice kitchen but not enough dishes to cook for the 3 families, massive range cooker but no oven gloves and when asked about them we were told that there were 2 kitchen towel left for us... The dishwasher really didn't clean enough despite putting highest program. the american fridge was great except that the water dispenser filter showed to be replaced so the water was not drinkable (awful taste), there appear to be a very fancy microwave but no manual on how to use it, and the cherry on the cake..we had to buy salt and pepper as there were none in the house on arrival..
Bathrooms: quite a few wrong elements really, in the master bedroom (which the main door doesn't quite fit), the bath did not work, the toilets had no door so direct view on the garden and neighbours. the other bathroom on the first floor had other issues, there was some seal missing on the shower close to the door so we had to use a towel to dry water escaping in the corridor, and the walk in shower floor was not even, so water would accumulate in the front outside the shower. Again the door didn't quite close, but the best of it was that there was no toilet brush in any of the toilets... we had to buy one...Also, the towels provided were way too small, just big enough for my wife hair. overall we were with very good friends so we could deal with the proximity but it could have been a bigger issue really
Bedrooms: mostly ok except some extremely soft matrices and one of the single bed upstairs was about to fall down as some screws were undone (first thing I saw in the bedroom)
We had a good time with our friends but there were some essential elements that really let the house down. There is a sale sign outside the house so I would presume the owner doesn't want to invest too much in it. I would have expected a higher quality for the price we paid and would be happy with some form of refund or voucher for a next rental
Thank you for the candid comments which are very helpful as we pride ourselves on the property and to date have had exceptional feedback from our guests. We have an on hand maintenance team who could have been called to resolve the issues if we had been aware which is why we check in with all of our guests and provide our direct number to all guests. We have informed them of the issues and will look into them.
We are glad you had a great time with your friends.
Fantastic stay at Forge Cottage, Easter Compton
Fantastic property. Very beautiful and quiet location. The cottage is really superb. Great for families. The decor is modern with a very homely and hotel like feel. You really will not be disappointed. The gated drive is wonderfully secure and parking is good for 3 cars. We stayed with family over Christmas and would love to be back in summer. The only issue you will have is who will have the en-suite bedroom with a bath, shower and dressing room! The kitchen is a great size with a TV just like the living room and it’s seating area. Beautiful fireplaces in living room and bedrooms. There is an abundance of cutlery, crockery and glasses for your use. Outside BBQ for warmer months. There is a dishwasher and beautiful range cooker. An American style fridge/freezer with instant ice and chilled water. You just cannot fault this property. Also very close to the motorway and Cribbs Causeway for shopping. Easter Compton is quiet and picturesque. The locals are very friendly. Finally, I cannot leave a review without mentioning the host Laura, who was fantastic. Very quick to respond on queries and very friendly and easy to speak to. Staying at this beautiful cottage was a wonderful experience. You won’t regret it.
