  • “Little brook cottage is extremely tired and in serious need of some TLC.”

    The skylight at the top of the stair is in poor state of repair and allows water in which runs down the wall and onto the carpet. The cleanliness of the cottage was poor, there was a dirty towels left on our arrival, dust hanging from the radiators and the bin was left full with rubbish on the floor around it. We have photos of the towel ...

    The skylight at the top of the stair is in poor state of repair and allows water in which runs down the wall and onto the carpet. The cleanliness of the cottage was poor, there was a dirty towels left on our arrival, dust hanging from the radiators and the bin was left full with rubbish on the floor around it. We have photos of the towel And dust if you require them. Finally on the settee it looks like the previous visitors had allowed their dog to chew a stick on there which had been left in several pieces all over the settee. We obviously needed to clean this up so we reached for the vacuum cleaner supplied which we had to empty before we could use it tricky when the bin was full!! All in all a lot more could and should have been done to the cleanliness of this property for our arrival and I am extremely disappointed with both the quality and cleanliness of this particular property and would not stay there again.
