Unfortunately, we didn’t have a very good time and were disappointed with the condition of the cottage. Prior to arrival we had been told that the BBQ wasn’t working. Then, while at the cottage the dishwasher didn’t work and, after being told it would be fixed asap, it remained unfixed for the duration of our stay. We also noted that the fridge wasn’t working properly (the milk went sour) and this was also not looked at. The kitchen wasn’t comfortable to sit in as a family as the table was uneven and the chairs were dirty and uncomfortable. All this meant that we didn’t utilise the kitchen very much and ate out more that we had planned to.The overall level of cleanliness wasn’t up to our expectations and there were also broken glass bits outside, that our son picked up and disposed of. Between having to wash everything by hand, not being able to utilise the kitchen much, worrying about food going off in the fridge, having to take out the bins (on bin collection day and at checkout) and stripping the beds - we felt that our stay was not good value for money and wasn’t the relaxing getaway we had been looking forward to.Very disappointing.

We’re sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your stay at Brook Cottage. We’ve shared your feedback with the Property Manager who is very appreciative of all feedback, good and bad, and is always looking for areas of improvement so that guests have a very best possible experience and stay. Unfortunately, the BBQ and dishwasher were not working for your stay. An issue with the BBQ was only reported by the previous guest at the end of their stay and as soon as a replacement was found it was installed. You were made aware of this issue as soon as possible and prior to arrival, with guest safety being a priority. The issue with the dishwasher was reported during your stay and the Property Manager instructed the appropriate person to investigate, believing this had been fixed as she hadn’t heard anything further from you. The fridge is in good working order so the Property Manager is unsure as to why the milk would have gone sour. If the fridge door is not properly closed this may have been the cause. On investigating, the fridge light bulb needed replacing and has since been replaced. The property is cleaned to the highest of standards which typically takes at least 4 hours, and all of your requests were met in terms of extra bedding etc. Guests are asked to kindly strip their bedding as this is part of the advice given to help reduce the risk of spreading COVID. This is only a polite request which most guests very happily oblige with to help support health and safety. Guests are usually asked to put the bins out for collection if they are staying for a week, the bins go just outside the property. As mentioned, all feedback is very much appreciated and will be used for the benefit of future guest. We’re sorry that not everything was as expected for your stay and for the inconvenience caused by the BBQ and dishwasher.

Brook Cottage is a fantastic place for getting away from it all but with a great space for socialising and hanging out with friends and family. We had a lovely time with family celebrating my parent's Golden Wedding Anniversary with walks in the countryside and cosy nights in the cottage. There is a long drive down a farm track to get there but once there you are in the middle of the countryside with the village approx 1 mile away.

Thank you for the wonderful review Elizabeth. We're pleased you had a great stay at Brook Cottage and enjoyed the special anniversary celebrations. We hope that you will be back to visit again soon!

You can arrive and depart on any day you like, for 2 nights or more, however if you select Monday and/or Friday as your changeover days, you will achieve the optimum price.
Why not pick up the Thames Path at Pinkhill Lock and enjoy a day beside the river. Walking is easy going in either direction and there are lots of spots for picnics!
