    we spent a nice week at Oaken cottage. We missed nothing and felt at home quite quickly. Steep stair could cause problems with small children, for our youngest (3 years) everything went fine. Nice furnished and clean cottage, absolutely recommendable!!!

    This cottage is a nice cottage, but the description in the advertisement is a little misleading. It faces other cottages not the harbour and it is on a bank. Rugs in the bedrooms would have been a plus as the wooden floorboard are not the most comfortable to walk on. It is well equipped, though the washing machine would be hard to use with all the stuff in the same cupboard. I think a few hooks on the back of the doors would help in the single room as there isn't any hanging area in it for clothes, it does have a set of drawers. Unfortunately the cleaners had not emptied the rubbish bin and had left dirty towels/bath mat in the bathroom. I also had to clean the tops of the units and cooker as they were dirty. My daughter had to clean the bathroom sink as someone previous had had a shave and it was full of facial hair. I did notify the housekeeper about this. This cottage was ok but to be honest I have stayed in nicer cottages in Mousehole over the past 20 years.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your review. Our cleaner left the cottage at around 2.15pm to get her car to pick up the towels etc. and refuse and to return to do final cleaning and checks and left her keys inside. When she returned minutes after the keys in the key safe had been removed which suggests you arrived significantly before the stated entry time of 3pm. She got no reply and so let the cleaning company owner know. The owner came round later that day to check all was well and to collect the keys and was told yes all fine. Indeed, her offer to come in to do final checks was refused and so somewhat surprising that there was no request then to rectify the concerns now reported. The early arrival clearly disrupted the cleaning process. Our understanding also is that you rang cottages.com a few weeks before asking how far the cottage was from the harbour. We were contacted and gave a clear explanation that the cottage is one row back from the harbour so around 50 yard walk. In high season it is probably advisable not to be on the harbour itself as it gets so busy and of course rental prices rise significantly. Most Mousehole rentals are for 4 and below and so Oaken sleeping 5 at a four star price point makes it very popular. We have a sofa and TV in the single as viewed an extra seating area as more important than a wardrobe alongside the roomy chest of drawers but will look into hanging pegs. Given the kitchen doubles as the diner we had no option but to house the washing machine in the understairs cupboard with the Dyson and cleaning equipment. This winter we renewed the bathrooms, front door and carpets throughout. New leather sofas are due in September.
