    This a lovely traditional cottage which has all the original elements. The stairs are very steep and are not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. You have views of the sea from the kitchen window. I was visiting family in the area and so I didn't use the kitchen. Used as a base to go site seeing.

    Cobwebs everywhere and whilst the kitchen equipment was plentiful, the cupboards and drawers smelt very musty necessitating washing plates/cutlery/pots etc before using. The steep stairs and downstairs bathroom caused a bit of a nuisance for those who needed the loo during the night but it is a very old and quaint cottage after all! The cottage was comfortable but as it rained every day the fires were needed to warm the rooms. All in all, the cottage does need some attention in that the bathroom window alcove leaked quite substantially when it rained, the ceiling in the third bedroom is coming down and the ceiling in the lounge needs attention.

    Booked 4 weeks and only stayed 9 days, if we could put minus for rating I would. Holiday began with blocked toilet for 3 days and owner was aware of this 3 days before we arrived and done nothing about it. Got told by cottages.com use the local pub or cafe if you need to use the toilet until sorted. Parking was at premium with all the vans/cars parked there so be prepared to walk. Cleanliness we would say could have been 100 times better. Extremely cluttered with owners possessions, it was extremely cold as no real heating, it also smelt and felt really damp & mouldy. Last straw was the ceiling started to fall down in downstairs room. Cooker did not work as burnt a pizza in 5 minutes. Also boy racers revving cars in docks car park every night until early hours. Complained and only got 1 weeks money back. Avoid if possibly can.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; When the renters phoned to tell me that the toilet was partially blocked, I immediately arranged for the plumber to clear the drains on his next working day – the Monday. He called me mid-morning on the Monday to tell me that the drain in the street (responsibility of the Water Authority) was causing the problem. I called the Water Authority and the blockage was cleared that afternoon. As can be seen from the website photos, the cottage is in a cul-de-sac, and as stated on the website, there is no off street parking. In regards to cleanliness, the property has always been given full marks by the Welcome Cottage inspector. In addition, because of the renters two dogs, I had considerable difficulty removing all the shed hair after they left and the odour of the dogs lingered in the property. The website describes the property as an old fisherman’s cottage – in addition, there are numerous photos (one of each room) on the website, clearly showing what the cottage is like. There is no central heating, as stated on the website however; there are eleven electric heaters within the property, giving an output of approximately 22kw, much more than sufficient to heat a low ceilinged cottage. Two polystyrene ceiling tiles, weighing less than a 1p coin were dislodged from the ceiling in a room which is only available to renters by arrangement, but which had been used. Had the oven not been working, the pizza would have been raw. It is working, and had the renters used the instructions provided, they may have had more success. I’m not in a position to comment on the use of the highways by drivers. The renters were delighted to accept the refund of one week, at the time. I also asked to have access to the property for half an hour during the first week, to check it, and the renters were obstructive, and prevented me from doing so.
