    On first look, the cottage was stunning. But... The bin hadn't been emptied and still had rubbish in it, the floor hadn't been swept, cobwebs not cleared, window in the door covered in fingerprints. The heating, for this time of year was inadequate and we felt cold most of the time. The fridge was off and the freezer had a defrosted bag of ice cubes in it. The pillows on the bed were lumpy and uncomfortable. For the money we paid for 3 nights, we felt it was not up to standard.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for bringing these points to our attention, we are sorry your stay was disappointing, as we take any matters of concern very seriously. There would appear to have been a breakdown in communication with the cleaner as this is the first time this has happened. All points raised have been addressed to prevent this from happening again.

    Nice little converted farm building. Very quiet location, lovely setting. As it is just for 2 people, the kitchen inventory could do with some tweeks. Only 2 very large saucepans and a lid for a smaller one but no pan! If visiting the area would certainly book again though.

    This cottage is beautiful and in a lovely part of the world. Good level of equipment, but needs better kitchen crockery, (nothing matches) and better linen and towels. Also a new sofa as it is not very comfortable. Just a few better touches would make this a 10 cottage. I had a lovely stay, it was very quiet and relaxing, just what I needed, I saw deer trotting past the one day. There are loads of NT properties near by and good shopping at Tunbridge Wells and East Grinstead. Would certainly recommend it.
