    Layout of cottage good- beds very comfy.Location - well suited for our needs, very quiet - no local facilities used during our stay. Shame bathroom suffers from damp, though given its a conversion, understandable. Fitting an extractor fan would be beneficial. Wasn't sure about the throws on sofas and chairs - initial thoughts were - was it to keep them clean as property accepts dogs - or to cover up scruffy furniture! Furniture was fine! Property was clean enough and had everything we needed, though website didn't make it clear had to bring own towels - picked this up from another review. Glad to see coat hooks in the corridor and a full length mirror - things overlooked at other properties we've been to. Generally, property met 3* rating - could benefit from some minor attention to create a bit of a smarter appearance - eg cupboard could be built around various meters etc near from door, replace mismatched tiles in kitchen. We couldn't get the heater in the main room to work - we couldn't find any instructions for the settings - though bed room ones worked fine and kept things warm enough throughout property.Also instructions re hot water controls would be helpful - only 1 electric switch for control - off or on meant no hot water or scalding hot water. A few minor issues that perhaps ought to have been checked and picked up during handover cleaning. Bathroom was showing signs of damp in one corner and skirting boards - just needed a bit more of a deep clean! Bedside light in twin room and light over bathroom sink didn't work. Generally good value for money.
