    “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.
