“We arrived at this cottage on a cold November day but sadly the heating wasn’t already on and it took a long time to warm up, not the best welcome.”
The overwhelming impression in the living area was how much the space was compromised by an oversized sofa and armchairs. The latter of which were not as shown in the promotional photos. The space was so small that I struggle to imagine how four people could move about in the room.
Also there is a Smart TV which has clearly been an issue with previous guests, us included. It’s so annoying having to use apps and log into the various channels not all of which offer live TV. There was no washing machine in the property either although checking on the web page it doesn’t refer to there being one so I guess that was an oversight on my part and wasn’t really an issue to be fair.
There was also an issue with lightbulbs, there were two boxes in a cupboard but they were not of the correct fitting so no idea why they were there in the first place?
Overall we found our stay rather disappointing, with a little more imagination and a modest financial outlay Cartmel Cottage could be a very nice holiday cottage.
