    The team worked very hard in order to ensure our trip could go ahead last minute, and I am very grateful for this (especially Kate). The property was in a fantastic location, however it was the lack of attention to detail where the owners let the place down. It is not a cosy cottage. The toilet seat upstairs was broken, the bathroom drain downstairs was blocked and had a really bad smell. No soap in the bathroom to wash hands, towels were really small, bedside lamp missing a bulb, blinds make the place feel cold and soulless - needs curtains. The blinds in bedroom not fit for purpose - let’s loads of light in from the streetlight opposite. Fortunately, none of this impacted our trip too much, and so still had a great break. A message for the owners: look at you feedback in the cottage. It looks as though you have removed some feedback pages in the past (no entries from 2018 but there are from 2017?). Spend that couple of extra pounds to make this a wonderful property to stay at.

    - Mr Bujko, October 2019

    We would like to thank you for your feedback. Please be assured that we are in the process of rectifying all the points that you have raised and will look to buy a new black-out blind for the bedroom. We do pride outselves on reviewing and responding to feedback so I am dissapointed to hear that there are pages missing from the guest book, I can assure you that this was not as a bid to 'hide' or 'remove' comments. We welcome you back to Little Brook and hope to see you again. Owner relations
