    Brilliant location with lovely views from the back. Well equipped cottage which was clean and tidy. Brilliant for beach and steam train. Cafe was very good as well serving lovely food. Would recommend.

    Thornby is a lovely bungalow in a superb location, with lovely sea views and the passing steam trains from the conservatory and bedrooms,it has a nice back garden with views and good parking at the front, it is very spacious with good furniture, the only thing that would improve it would be a fridge/freezer in the kitchen, otherwise everything is ok.

    This lovely, big bungalow in it's picturesque location would have scored much higher if it had been cleaned properly before our arrival! Spiders and cobwebs everywhere in all rooms and the bathroom floor and small cloakroom were noticeably grimy. Beds were comfy and clean. Sofa's need replacing as they let the place down. (made the mistake of pulling them out to get at the spiders and discovered lots of dead insects and even a broken biscuit!). Also the TV is much too small for the size of the room! This could have been a lovely place if a bit of TLC had been spent on it and a bit more invested in it. The garden was lovely and was obviously cared for more than the house. We have stayed in many cottages with the same rating as this and they would all put this to shame. A welcome pack is quite usual on arrival or even a pint of milk would be nice! We took this as a late booking so the value for money was almost fair but would have complained on arrival if we had paid full high season price.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are very sorry that the guests were not happy with the cleanliness of the property. We are going down this weekend and will do an end of season deep clean. We will also discuss the comments with our caretakers. While there is no excuse for cobwebs I would like to point out that in the countryside the spiders are at their most numerous in the autumn! We do hope to replace the sofas this low season. I can understand that guests feel that they have paid a lot of money, but 40% of this goes to Last year we had gas central heating installed and a new bedroom carpet. The TV is a 32 inch in a room that is 12 by 14 ft, so we do not feel this is excessively small and will give the sofas priority.
