All our homes are now VisitBritain inspected and you will find the Star ratings displayed on each cottage page. Assessors have visited most of our properties assessing quality, including comfort, space, facilities and cleanliness. We hope that they will aid you in choosing the holiday home that is right for you. Any property that is not currently rated will be shortly and you can phone us to obtain this information.
The quality rating system is easy to use and the information below can be used as a guide. Quite simply, the more stars the higher the overall level of quality you can expect to find. All properties have to meet an extensive list of minimum requirements before they are considered for a star rating. From there increased levels of quality apply.
Acceptable overall level of quality. Adequate provision of furniture, furnishings and fittings.
(In addition to what is provided at One Star). Good overall level of quality. All accommodation self contained.
In addition to what is provided at Two Star). Good to very good overall level of quality. Good standard of maintenance and decoration. Ample space and good quality furniture. All double beds with access from both sides. Microwaves.
(In addition to what is provided at Three Star). Excellent overall level of quality. Very good care and attention to detail is obvious throughout. Either access to washing machine, if not provided in the unit, or a 24 hour laundry service.
(In addition to what is provided at Four Star). Exceptional overall level of quality. High levels of decor, fixtures and fittings, together with excellent standards of management, efficiency and guest services. Excellent range of accessories and professional touches.
All our properties have standard equipment including at least one colour television.
