    The property is in a fantastic location and the cottage has great potential but it’s not there yet. The owners need to listen to the comments being left by guests. The plaster work downstairs needs immediate attention, the property needs to be cleaned much more thoroughly between guests - we had a dirty tablecloth and a food bin full of the previous occupants food waste. There needs to be clear instructions on how to use the hot water, when the rubbish is collected ( the listing in the manual was from 2016) and rather than nasty sweet wine and random toiletries in the guest hamper, I’d have much preferred a bottle of milk! And when contacted by a guest don’t promise what you won’t deliver- like sheets for the double bed in the 2nd bedroom, we ended up going out and buying our own. We also think there’s potentially a hornets nest in the thatch and we couldn’t open any of the upstairs windows. We wanted to have a home from home experience in a beautiful old cottage but we ended up feeling we were house sitting in some one else’s house. Would not rebook.
