    “This is a really lovely cottage in a good location.”

    All the furniture is stylish and comfortable and the kitchen amenities are very good, such as the induction hob and fridge with in-built ice-maker. We would stay here again, certainly. ...

    All the furniture is stylish and comfortable and the kitchen amenities are very good, such as the induction hob and fridge with in-built ice-maker. We would stay here again, certainly. Our only negative feedback is that the check-in/out times are quite arduous, especially if you have young children. 6pm Friday check-in basically condemns you to hell on the M5 and a loss of infant bedtime routine; 9am check-out coupled with a fair bit of cleaning responsibilities (stripping beds, emptying bins etc) is also pretty unkind. We understand that the owners do some cleaning themselves, and that Covid has increased cleaning standards, but surely this could be made friendlier for guests, even if it meant paying a little more.
