    “Not you, the owners.”

    Cottage uncomfortably cold, bad condensation and black mould on net curtains in bathroom and in corner above sink. Decor very tired, badly chipped glasswork, fraying carpet in bathroom, worn carpet on stairs. We were told to bring bath towels, which we did, but 1 hand towel and 1 loo roll for 4 adults for a week is mean spirited. USP is the open fire but one of the owners’ many notes actively discouraged you from using it and we had to buy kindling and logs. The kitchen had many utensils ...

    Cottage uncomfortably cold, bad condensation and black mould on net curtains in bathroom and in corner above sink. Decor very tired, badly chipped glasswork, fraying carpet in bathroom, worn carpet on stairs. We were told to bring bath towels, which we did, but 1 hand towel and 1 loo roll for 4 adults for a week is mean spirited. USP is the open fire but one of the owners’ many notes actively discouraged you from using it and we had to buy kindling and logs. The kitchen had many utensils but was very cold, there was no space to prepare meals ( the toaster is on top of the microwave) and it was a squeeze to fit more than one person at a time. Another note reminded us to clean the grill pan but the owners left just one j cloth. If the owners want you to keep things clean appropriate materials are a good incentive. We had to buy sponge scourers and j cloths. We were told to strip the beds before we left ( the many notes really felt like we were being lectured, especially when the information was repeated) which is not really acceptable, we were not guests staying in a house free of charge, this is a business and I expect that as part of the cleaning on changeover days the owners will strip the bed. The positives are that the shower was decent, the duvets were warm, there is off street parking for two cars and lots of games/books/dvds. Overall, our party was disappointed and felt ripped off.
