    Lots of bees and flies are there in the kitchen and living rooms, there is no back doors or windows for air circulation, no dryer provided for after washed the cloths to dry, if it is raining struggled for get dry cloths , owner of the property is very nice person, friendly and helpful .

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments. The property is not advertised with a tumble dryer. There are washing line facilities, the dryer was removed from the property many years ago as it was a possible fire hazard as unfortunately people didn't bother to clean the filters when it was used. So for people's safety we removed the dryer. Unfortunately, flies can appear around the property more than other times, this may be due to weather conditions when very warm and wet. We are in a valley and also near the lake and river. There are also fields with livestock on the neighbouring boundaries. To be honest its part and parcel of being in the countryside and it's probably very different from being in a town or city. Again wasps can appear anywhere and if we should locate a nest we do try to eradicate it as soon as possible. The property front faces the courtyard and has two front doors. The house is a small barn conversion and it is impossible for back doors as the property is partly below ground level on the back side. However there are plenty of windows in the property up and down. As for the particular week that you stayed, I remember it being very hot, wet, still and muggy, and again that's just one of those things none of us can control.

    Stayed for one week. Great location for exploring Devon, both north and south Devon coast beaches not much more than an hour away. Half hour walk to Bampton for pubs, small supermarkets and chippy. Cottage was well equipped, shame there was no garden but the large paved area out the front more than adequate for BBQ's and games of cricket!
