    Owner/manager responds:

    This feedback is out of order. Our property is first checked by our cleaner then by myself[owner] and everything worked and nothing was broken. Following placing of this feedback guest was emailed, what was the problem? did not reply. We have been on Bookaback for a long time with near 100% good feedback. We have asked our Property Manager/booking agent not to accept future bookings from Deanchurchill.

  • Location good

    Location good. Property was modern and spacious. Had had some work done before we stayed and had a couple of small issues which we could have had dealt with in 24 hours. Chose not to. Would love to have stayed longer . Provided great space for our family of 10. Highly recommend. Would go back.

  • The house was perfectly set up for small children

    The house was perfectly set up for small children. Plenty of space, with all the home comforts. Great location, children's park close by that you can walk to along with the lake. will absolutely look to hire this again.
