    Cottage did not live up to a 4 star rating. Everything was ok but all a little worn and dated and missing nice touches. Cottage felt damp even with heating on. Lock on patio door broke on the first day and was never fixed. Light on path didn't work. However Valerie was very friendly.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are sorry this guest didn't fully enjoy her stay, however, we did all we could to get the bolt in the patio doors fixed but the guest advised she didn't want to be disturbed during the week. So we obliged and had the bolt on one side of the pair of patio doors replaced on changeover day, this didn't present a security issue as door could not be opened from outside. We feel these things happen but try to not disturb the holiday as much as possible which this guest wanted. The cottage was almost steaming as this guest wanted the heating on even though the temperature outside was very warm, l found condensation on the windows as the cottage was not ventilated. I'm surprised by these comments, however, reassure others we will do all that's possible to rectify any issues if given the chance. If a bulb went out on the outside lighting we were available to be told and replace it, to give privacy to our guests we don't wander down the path but leave the guests to let us know if there is a problem.

    We did like the location as it is just a short walk from Instow. We were disappointed to find that the cottage was not very clean when we arrived and we spent the first evening and morning cleaning (running all dishes and cutlery through the dishwasher, cleaning all surfaces, complete vacuum through, etc). Some may approve but it was a WiFi and phone signal dead zone. The kitchen was dated and could do with some modernising. French doors were stiff to use but the owners helped when asked. Otherwise it was a nice layout, beds were comfortable and with seats outside in a tucked away little garden. It was a good place to stay on the days we didn't go on a visit and the children enjoyed the garden.
