    Confirmed guest, 06/01/2017
    The heating had been put on as one hour on, one hour off and until we found the boiler we kept getting cold - this is a false economy and unacceptable in January. The radiators in one of the bedrooms downstairs and the bathroom were hardly on and one cold night I had to put clothes on in bed to keep warm enough. There was a lack of some basic kitchen utensils, e.g. grater, measuring jug The water pressure was poor in the en-suite shower and from the kitchen tap where the water was sometimes hot but would then go cold. The size of the cottage was good and location near to great countryside and Ashbourne for amenities, so if the heating could be sorted out and the kitchen slightly better stocked, would be fine.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback. The heating was set and you had the opportunity to adjust accordingly and adjust the thermostat in the sitting room. All the radiators are set and when someone turns one radiator up, it then causes a problem with the balance. My husband and I went into the property and re-balanced all the radiators. Upon speaking with you later that day, you confirmed the heating was working fine in all rooms. The kitchen is very well equipped and I did say if there was anything they hadn’t got, please come and ask and I will do what I can to help. There was a measuring jug in the back of the cupboard and I have now put a grater in the cottage.
