    Totally spoiled by noise/smell of extractor from kitchen just below entrance door. Very dirty/greasy stairs - could be dangerous if wet. Entrance area used for dustbins etc. Parking area used as a toilet by local ferule cats. No outside space as implied in your photos of property. Will advise anyone never to go to the Crows Nest. Photos of unacceptable entrance area.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; There is no private outside space for this property but it does have it’s own allocated parking area. The stairs to the property are properly maintained at all times in line with our Health and Safety Policy. As a Yacht Club we take responsibility for dealing with our waste appropriately and as such there are several recycling containers at the rear of the Clubhouse but these do not in any way impinge on the property. Although the front door of the property is directly above our Club kitchen door odours from the cooking will only be during certain opening hours which are generally Fridays and Saturdays (lunchtimes and some evenings). Being a harbour location the area is frequented by ferule cats but these are not, and have never been intrusive and as our waste is kept out of reach in closed recycling bins this has never caused any undue problems or complaints. The property and its superb view has been enjoyed by many visitors over the past few years.
