    I loved the cottage but as a person who is disabled there were quite a few steps so couldn't enjoy garden. And no downstairs bathroom which would have been handy as had to crawl upstairs every time. Came home a couple of days early because of this not the owners fault but was not told when I asked until we got there. But was really lovely cottage I would recommend it as long as your not disabled.

    Squirrel Cottage is a lovely cosy place to stay, couldn't fault the property. However the location is not great, directly on a very busy narrow lane and no where to walk the dog safely with out going in the car.

    This cottage is situated 4 miles from Bridge end, down a country lane. It is as described a short walk from a pub and Supermarket, which is correct we did visit the supermarket but it was a run down place on a run down council estate and a local pub which we did not go into. the cottage it self is quite big, a on arriving I took a quick walk down stairs which looked okay and then went upstairs, the furniture is quite old but nice and suits the cottage. The bathroom is large with a nice bath but what struck me was the Dust which was gathered on top of the shower head, I wasn't impressed so went on my Cleaning Inspection. the top of the cabinet in the bathroom was thick with dust, as well as Shelves in the bedrooms, I didn't think the mattresses where very good they looked worn but I did sleep okay in them. Downstairs was pretty much the same, clean where you could see but on top of furniture was disgusting so was behind settee and wall and ceiling lights. The kitchen just got worse with dust and dirt, Old coffee in the machine, cooker and Microwave filthy and inside cupboards. Toaster had crumbs on the top of it from previous users and wire grills from Cooker in cupboard covered in grease cleaning was simply not good. you had a long thin lounge with a TV with WIFI which you could not connect to, and a 3 seater settee, leather Low back, leather worn off in places and so uncomfortable myself 55 wife 47 mum 78 all complaining. yet in the bigger room 2 lovely 2 seaters a tv connected to a playstation but no tv channels. We were only there for a 3 nights otherwise I would have been on the phone demanding 2 cleaners in for a day to clean the place or be moved to another cottage. I instead complained with photos as proof and received £100 back. Think this cottage also has some sort of damp problem as it was musky in some rooms, This cottage needs a full deep clean, New Microwave, New Mattreses, WIFI sorting, New settee in tv Lounge, and tv in other room connecting to Sky. I holiday most years in cottages and yes you can always find something to moan about if you have to but this is the first time I have ever had a good reason to complain
