    • “Great cottage - felt like home for a week.”

    Mr Crosbie, New Malden, August 2018

    • “We had a lovely holiday staying at Fiddlesticks Cottage for the second year running, 3 of us plus Florence the dog! Just felt it was not as clean as last year. The freezer in fridge was so frosted up, impossible to use. The upstairs bathroom, ok, but had not been cleaned in the corners etc. The cutlery tray was horrid, old dried food amongst the cutlery. Outside, in the courtyard garden, just needed a bit of TLC, hanging baskets dead, bushes needed cutting. I watered the geraniums that were ok. Sadly no garden umbrella for the table, disappeared from last year, really needed it this last week in the heat. Front of the house 2 dead plant pots by the front door and the path/steps all needed sweeping.The neighbour also commented about it. Best not to have plants if they can't be cared for. Anyway a happy week with great weather, lovely position of the cottage, but please don't let the care of the cottage go down. it was very clean last year. ****Owner Response**** Thank you very much for your comments, we're so pleased you chose to return to Fiddlesticks and we're delighted to hear you had another lovely holiday. We're sorry to hear a few things weren't perfect however and would like to let you know that our regular cleaner is now back and we hope to continue the same high presentation as previously. Having had such a hot and dry summer we agree that the garden needs a bit of attention and we will ensure this happens. The garden umbrella has also been replaced. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, we're really happy again to have had you back and we look forward to seeing you again next Summer!”

    Mr Beard, CHIPPENHAM, July 2018

    • “It wasn't quite clear what to do with food waste, we put into freezer bags and then into the dustbin out the front otherwise everything was fine.”

    Mr Timms, SOUTHAM, July 2018

    • “A very comfortable property, albeit rather overlooked by surrounding properties, in a very pleasant town. I would emphasize that when they say 'Parking for one small car' they mean exactly that. Luckily for us our car is small!”

    Mr Carran, CREWE, June 2018

    • “Charming cottage in a wonderfully friendly village, surrounded by beautiful countryside. The cottage was very well equipped, the village of Beaminster had a good selection of shops, butchers, green grocers and a good Co Op.”

    Mrs Birch, HORSHAM, April 2018

    • “Helpful holidays has that personal feel that so few companies have now a days. They always deliver!”

    Mrs Cox, April 2018

    • “We had a lovely weekend at Fiddlesticks Cottage - perfect size and shape for a family of four, and all mod cons.... Beaminster is a lovely little town - lots of pubs, nice shops, a Co-op just round the corner, for those last minute items, and the Beaminster Museum is a wonderful place to spend an hour or two on a rainy day...or even on a sunny day! The Giant Man at Cerne Abbas, and the beach at Lyme Regis are only 30-odd minutes away,,,two nice trips with lots of fresh air and walking, followed by cream teas and local ice-creams, respectively. Couldn't recommend it more - I'm sure we'll be back...”
