    “A number of issues- on a positive, the beds were comfortable.”

    Location was a definite plus and the cottage was well equipped. The broken glass that was left in the cupboard on our arrival I left on the worktop! The cottage was very tired and dated aside from the basement level which was very comfortable and warm- however although it was stated that the fuel was included, no logs were provided for the woodburner - just kindling. We found a dirty cotton bud by the shower, the drainage was so slow in this downstairs bathroom, water gushed out from the shower ...

    Location was a definite plus and the cottage was well equipped. The broken glass that was left in the cupboard on our arrival I left on the worktop! The cottage was very tired and dated aside from the basement level which was very comfortable and warm- however although it was stated that the fuel was included, no logs were provided for the woodburner - just kindling. We found a dirty cotton bud by the shower, the drainage was so slow in this downstairs bathroom, water gushed out from the shower tray which was mopped up with the bathmat. The 'yard' was unusable- filthy dirty and not as the photo! no outdoor light but a security light which stayed on for approx 15 seconds. Next doors gutter turned the yard into Niagara Falls...it rained a lot during our stay. It feels like the property is part way through a renovation- the bathroom bath had peeling enamel, lifting cushion flooring and the electric shower was very poor. I was extremely disappointed in this property which we had selected for my 60th birthday with my 'children' - the WiFi didn't work. An outside light at the front would have been helpful as we were scrambling about in the dark trying to open the key safe on arrival- after 4pm is DARK! I feel the property is over priced and to say we were all disappointed doesn't cover it. You could publish my feedback but dont feel obliged- we left early n Sunday morning and decided we would be happier at home
