    “Stair cottage was extremely well fitted out with everything expected in a five star holiday cottage and was very comfortable in every respect.”

    There are, however, some aspects which were a little disappointing. A T.V.is advertised as being fitted in the main bathroom. Unfortunately there wasn't one when we were there, only a note to say it was broken. This needs amending in the advert for the cottage. Also the walk in shower floor tiles and grouting are black in places and some of the grouting is coming out. The whole shower really needs retiling. The other matters are related to housekeeping. The glass dining table was very smeared and had to be washed and polished. The gas hob splashback was greasy and the top rim adjacent to the wall was filthy. With the exception of one plastic rubbish bag no others were provided, which was inconvenient. Notwithstanding the above, we had a most enjoyable stay at Stair.
