Miss Blake, February 2020
I was disappointed not to be able to get in before 3pm and then had to be out by 10am.. I felt we ‘lost’ a day of our break. I realise there must be a turn around time but I felt 3pm -12noon would have been better or 2pm-12noon even better. A team can easily get through a property to change beds, clean bathrooms, kitchen etc and vacuum through in 2hours., the team size needs to be appropriate to the size of property, though.
Tudor Wing was really comfy, but tired. Lots of leaks going on but the weather has not helped this beautiful old property. Nothing worried us unduly. However, sitting room furniture was a little careworn but again, I appreciate that as dogs are permitted, it is never going to be pristine.
For us in particular, the Friday, earlier would have been great as most left on Sunday to get children to bed for school on the Monday and in this particular instance, the rest left by 8.50 to get people to the airport for flights so 10am out was not a problem, except I spent the evening after majority vacated, checking their rooms and packing up what we could before departure. So, an earlier ‘in’ on Friday would have given us all a little more time together.
Dog aspects were brilliant, walks etc..the gardens delightful despite all the recent rain.
