    The cottage was dirty, covered in black soot/ grime from fireplaces. Couldn't use the living room due to the strong smell of soot in the air. Mouse droppings in the crockery. Gas heating didn't work properly so was cold at night.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner:- I am sorry you didn't find the cottage acceptable but any complaints should have been made immediately to the caretaker who lives opposite and could have rectified them. The cottage is over 100 years old and has two open fire places so it inevitable that there may be some ash in the grate as they are regularly used by our guests. There is no gas connected to the cottage and the oil fired boiler is on a maintenance contract and any fault with the heating could have been rectified if it had been reported at the time.

    A Nice, roomy cottage a short drive away from most local attractions. A bit dated in places and there were areas which could have been cleaner. We felt that some essentials (e.g. Coffee, Milk, toilet roll) were lacking on arrival, but was remedied on a trip to the local shop. Otherwise we largely enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming again.

    The location was excellent and close to everything we wanted to do. The accommodation was adequate for our needs however, the cottage itself was in need of some decoration and freshening up. Although we didn't spend much time at the cottage it served our needs well enough. Had to bring own towels but were advised of this by the caretaker before arrival.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner:- Thank you for your comments. We have plans to re-fresh the cottage in due course.

    Boiler was dodgy which caretaker knew about but didn't tell us, upstairs toilet was broke and flooded bathroom floor that I myself had to fix caretaker said it's fine, had to make beds and not 100% sure they were clean sheets so used own that I had taken. House is in need of a good makeover cleaned and decorated but it was somewhere to put it head down and out again first thing in morning

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; There is nothing dodgy about the boiler, it is on a full service agreement and any issues with it would be put right. We only ask that customers do not fiddle with the controls but leave them as they are set. If extra heating is required at any time there is a manual advance button on the boiler and the thermostat can be easily turned up or down. There had been a minor leak in the bathroom which a local plumber had resolved earlier but he did have to go back a second time to replace a part in the cistern which he had overlooked which caused the second leak. The laundry is washed after every holiday changeover by the caretaker/cleaner who lives in the house opposite the cottage. If there are any issues please speak to her in the first instance.

    The map on booking is not accurate. It was necessary to ask the neighbors for help because the telephone numbers provided didn't work. Cleanliness could be better and basic things like soap for washing hands were lacking.

    Needs a good clean. The last time we stayed there were condiments spare loo roll hand soap etc with an unspoken rule of if you finished it replace it.
