The cottage was clean and reasonably comfortable, parking was easy and the garden large and secure. But there were niggles-the owner had installed a second tv control which only allowed the basic functions. We found underwear in the upstairs drawers. There was a lack of privacy downstairs which could be sorted by nets / blinds or blackout blinds is needed in the main bedroom. There was only a small saucepan and two very large with one lid between them and the bathroom mirror was for tall people only. Nothing expensive to sort, just attention to detail.

Lovely stay at Swiss Cottage in the beautiful village of Alrewas, ideally positioned for long walks by the canal. The cottage was very clean and had a very nice enclosed back garden and off road parking.

Top marks. Can't praise this enough. Michael and Claire were wonderful hosts and left us to enjoy our holiday, but were there if needed but thankfully we didn't. Excellent location with several takeaways and pubs all were top notch. Will definitely book again. Thank you Michael & Claire
