    Although Craigend Cottage is set is a very secluded location surrounded by lovely countryside thats where the the plus points of this cottage end. Seating area and bed were uncomfortable and could do with updating, the heater in the passage way didn't work and i can see that point was raised in a previous review in June from another holiday maker and has still not been addressed. All very old throughout. Other than the bathroom whole property could do with being updated Wouldn't recommend.

    the cottage in a lovely private location ,but very steep drive ,needs updating re heating thats ongoing we believe as its very cold in the bedrooms needs some T L C AND improvement on soft furnishings and more curtains drab disapointed

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Unfortunately this lovely couple whom I met had a very wet week of weather, so I feel some of their unhappiness at the cottage was unfortunately due to being cooped up in the cottage with their dogs and not able to enjoy the beautiful cottage surrounding to it's full. It was discovered after they had left that the heater in the passage way was not working. Each bedroom though has its own portable electric fan heater, and each bed has an electric blanket. The main lounge area was lovely and warm when I visited and that was even without them having lit a fire. The cottage is constantly receiving TLC, and over Easter had new linen and towels put in, a brand new hall way rug, all the cushion covers were washed, and several beds had new mattress protectors fitted. I also installed draft excluders around both the front and inner door. Between guests, and when the weather allows me, I am trying to get the wood around the eaves painted. We had new in-built wardrobes in 3 of the bedrooms over the winter, and this next winter will be having an air source heating system installed throughout the cottage, as well as having the external walls insulated and the loft insulation depth increased. We are at the cottage for a week in July and will again spend the week doing DIY and giving the cottage ongoing TLC.

    not enough sofa space for 8 people. also not enough hot water in kitchen to wash up for 8 people. very cold when arrived 10 degrees

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are sorry our visitors found the cottage cold. The cottage has wall mounted electric heaters in the lounge/dining area, kitchen, bathroom and passageway. The bedrooms have portable electric fan heaters which are left for guests to put on to their requirements. The beds all have electric blankets. The lounge has an open fire place and most guests appreciate sitting round the fire in the evening. We will look into installing night storage heaters throughout to improve overall warmth. The kitchen has a fairly small hot water heater, but the water heats up very quickly after it has been emptied and no one has complained about it before. There is space on the settees positioned around the fire for 8 to be accommodated. We would appreciate it if visitors looking to book the cottage would take time to view the star rating, read the property description carefully and view the photos to have a clear idea of the cottage, its facilities and those of the area before booking.
