    We had a lovely relaxing week in this delightful cottage. The only negative being that the shower and bath is not easily accessible for someone with limited mobility. We had extremely cold weather during our stay, a couple of problems with the heating were sorted out quickly and ensured we stayed cosy and warm. The beds were oh so comfortable, we slept like logs! Thank you cottage owners!

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you so much for your comments and we are so glad you had a comfortable stay at Herston Rise. We look forward to hopefully welcoming you back again in the future.

    Cottage was a great base for us over Christmas. Light airy rooms and comfortable. Shame we encountered a problem with heating and the kettle not working on arrival but owner had sorted it within 4 hours. Only recommendations is a fixing for plastic blind/window cords & slip proof bath mat.

    We were happy with the property size, location & local amenities but disappointed when we smelled cat wee as soon as we got inside. We couldn't get the fire to light so the downstairs wasn't as cosy as we'd have liked. Upstairs the beds & bedding were lovely & comfortable. The shower was great. The house wasn't as clean as we'd like- radiators, skirting boards, extractor in bathroom window...The pans/oven trays were past their best so we avoided cooking. The cat wee & fire problem was mentioned previously in guest book so assume owner not bothered? We tried to make the best of it as we were treating our friends to a few days away; they went home early as it was too cold to sit comfortably downstairs.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are so sorry that you were not happy with the cleanliness of the cottage but wish that you had brought any cleaning needs to our attention so they could have been acted on promptly, likewise if you were having difficulties with the fire then we could have perhaps helped. We do not allow cats in to the cottage and had had all the downstairs coverings recently cleaned, but again had we been made aware then this may not have dampened your enjoyment of our stay. Thank you for taking the time to make your thoughts known and we will continue to try and improve our guests experience.

    We really enjoyed staying in the really cosy cottage but unfortunately there was no dishwasher, the beds were nice but very soft and although we didn't really mind there was quite a smell of animals that were guests before - so it definitely wouldn't be recommendable to people with allergies.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner- I would like to take the opportunity to answer both -There was a dishwasher at the cottage originally, but this was changed to a washing machine through the feedback that we had from our guests; This was deemed more useful for a seaside holiday cottage. We do provide two sets of crockery so that the washing up time can hopefully be kept to a minimum. We do advertise the fact that pets are accepted here at the cottage, this is a popular walking area, but do apologise if you thought there was any residual odour from previous guests. We will look into ways of trying to alleviate this. Thank you for taking the time to make your thoughts known.
