    “The request that the heating be left at 12 degrees meant that for the first 24 hours the cottage was uncomfortably cold.”

    Also during our stay All floors downstairs were so cold it was uncomfortable to walk about without shoes on.

    Thank you for your feedback. We can only apologise for your experience we do not want it to be uncomfortable. We have recently upgraded the heating system to the hive system and obviously need to review the instructions as our intentions are to have a warm and welcoming property. Property Owner
