Reviews

    • “Terrific house, comfortable, spacious, great for kids looking for various indoor and outdoor settings to play in, elegant, a certain oasis to relax in and Chagford, just down the road, is a charming English village.”

    Mr Conroy, Vrsovice, July 2018

    • “Peaceful pastoral location, with sheep baaing and birds twittering. The house is so spacious and there was room for 3 family groups to mingle and separate as desired. We suggested some curtains or blinds for the top floor bedroom to avoid early waking, although the view is spectacular across the hills, so I could why you might not want to hide it! Beds large and comfortable, carpeting thick and clean, games, books, pictures make this a unique holiday home. We enjoyed a super week.”

    Mr & Mrs Prouse, BERKHAMSTED, May 2018

    • “Beechlands is a lovely house in a fantastic location. Sadly, however, we had a lot of problems, which were exacerbated by the cold and wet weather in early April. 1. The two radiators in the top bedroom weren't working properly and need bleeding - and only one of the three windows had blinds. So the room was very cold. And although the coloured ceiling lights are fun, they're not very practical or functional when it's dark. 2. There wasn't enough water pressure to have a hot bath in top bedroom. By the time the bath was 1/4 full the water had gone cold. 3. The underfloor heating in the conservatory - described as the perfect place to dry dogs and walking gear - wasn't working. 4. As we couldn't dry our coats in the conservatory, we thought we'd hang them on the hooks above the radiator in the ground floor bathroom. But that radiator wasn't working either. 5. There was no welcome manual with information about when the heating comes on, where to put the rubbish, when the rubbish gets collected, how to recycle stuff, etc. Just a laminated sheet of paper with a few basic details. 6. The radiator in the red ensuite bedroom wasn't working properly (the top half got warm but the bottom half didn't) and the radiator/heated towel rail in the ensuite didn't work at all. 7. The dishwasher was leaking.. 8. The kettle blew and tripped the electrics. 9. The DVD player in the room with the fire wasn't working. Luckily one of the guests, who is a bit of a technie, managed to sort out the scart leads and get it going. I emailed Helpful Holidays about the above on the 1st of April and Helen kindly got in touch with me. I also sent the housekeeper Mary Lou a text and she immediately sorted out a new kettle, a second duvee for the red bedroom and two electric heaters for the conservatory. She also offered to bleed the radiators but we were happy to do that once we had been given a radiator key. Once we were warm and dry, things got a lot better. Having been made aware of the problems, I'm sure the owners and Helpful Holidays will sort them out and future guests will have a lovely time.”
