  • "The cottage was very dirty."

    Broken window. Had to give it all a really good clean before could stay there. Windows were absolutely filthy. First impressions were not good. Actually cottage was comfortable.

  • "The cottage was reasonably priced."

    I had to book it last minute as our previous booking was cancelled due to Covid 19. The cottage had a big garden which was great for kids and dog but no garden furniture or stuff to play on (to be honest wasn't listed on site either). There was plenty of space for us but no extras like visitor book or information on what was available nearby. Owner met us at house and was very friendly. The house was not very clean. It was damp in places and a lot if mould in shower room.
