“1 Laburnum Cottage, was just as previous visitors had stated in the visitors' book - clean, cosy and comfortable - the beds were superb.”
How unfortunate then that the outward appearance is rather shabby.
Discarded rubbish, un-clipped hedges and, what appears to be deep water un-fenced.
Maybe a few more checks could be made between each letting, for example on the in-house appliances.
The toaster tray needed emptying before use.
The filter in the tumbler drier was packed solid with fluff - a very serious fire hazard.
The dishwasher couldn't drain properly due to scale build-up in its filter, this we cleaned as best we could.
The TV had not been re-tuned since the last update.
Nevertheless, the holiday was an enjoyable one, the pub across the road was a good choice for meals - and certain members of staff gave an excellent service.
