    Not great

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; I spent an hour with the family, offering local information and places to go, the whole family engaged. There was plenty of time to say if they were not happy with the cottage. However I did notice there was a third dog roaming the cottage, when actually the maximum allowed is two. They offered an explanation and I felt we left on very good terms.

    Although the cottage was lovely it was situated in a very rural location with the nearest supermarket a few miles away. Unless you have a car and want to drive a fare way to the beach or other places you were stuck. The cottage needs a lot of TLC. However if this was done and you were happy in a rural environment then it would be lovely.

    Cooker and microwave were coming covered in rust One set of bed linen provided for 2 weeks, when requesting more was told to go to the nearest laundrette 6 miles away to wash them. Unable to dry and washing due to the washing line being underneath a huge tree. Unable to use seating area due to it being so unkempt Cottage apparently cleaned, however on arrival found loads of spiders and spider webs everywhere. One night had a spider crawling over one of use during the night, spiders found in beds.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; This family contacted me a day and a half before the end of their 2 week holiday, asking if I could bring a couple of sheets over as they couldn’t dry the sheets they had washed in cottage washing machine. As my car was at the garage that day I was unable to bring some sheets over as requested, but suggested using the laundrette in Launceston. They appeared happy with this solution. Occasionally we do have two week bookings, we are more than happy to supply fresh linen at the end of the first week if requested. The cottage is thoroughly cleaned after our guests leave. The cobwebs are removed and spiders if any found are placed in the garden. The cooker has no rust on it, however the microwave was showing signs of wear and has been replaced with a new one.

    There were 4 adults and a dog for our holiday and we all had plenty of room at the cottage. 1 person struggles with stairs so the downstairs bedroom, shower and bathroom were ideal. Garden was lovely and secure for our dog. Well equipped kitchen with 2 large fridges and dishwasher. Bude, Tintagel, Boscastle nearby. About an hour and half to Mount St Michael. The only thing that let it down was cobwebs and no shops or pubs within walking distance really. There was a plumbing issue during our stay and the owner was round within the hour to fix it, customer service amazing.

    Overall pretty good, minor niggles, no mirrors for shaving or shaver plug, hot tap in downstairs bathroom noisy. The wet room although handy being on ground floor was not really fit for the older generation, nowhere to put clothing & stone step slippery when wet. Being 7 of use not enough comfy seating in lounge to be together.
