    Mrs Harrison

    “The cottage was in a great location.”

    There was a smell like cat wee in the living room. The cottage was quite dusty and some cat hair in the living room, we just felt that it should have bee clean for the price paid. The parking is difficult on the 'drive' if you do not have a small car.

    Many thanks for your feedback. The owner has confirmed that this is a pet free property and no animals have been in the property. The owner parks an estate car on the drive and was sorry to hear that you found it difficult to park during your stay. - Sykes owner relations
