  • “The cottage is only 4 feet from a VERY busy main road - no front garden - and the old ill-fitting sash cord windows don't block out much.”

    Quite a few heavy lorries throughout the day, starting early! ...

    Quite a few heavy lorries throughout the day, starting early! I was woken up by traffic at 6AM almost every day. The traffic noise makes it impossible to relax in the front room or kitchen. Scarcely "a delightful dwelling to relax in" On arrival we noticed a musty smell, I think the rugs and carpets need a good clean. The enclosed yard at the back is tiny and you share it with the dustbins. Some of the décor is very good - the downstairs rooms have some fine fireplaces, floor and rugs, and the bathroom is excellent - but is marred by clutter and a lack of functional items like proper reading lights and proper wardrobes. I's a very bad place if you suffer from back problems, the low-slung downstairs sofas were very bad for me and getting things out of the fridge, which is under the stairs, was not easy. And it you are tall you'll probably bang your head on the sloping ceiling several times. Not very impressed with Horncastle either, wish we'd stayed at Louth or Woodhall Spa.

    Dear Mr Brooks We are sorry that you have felt that the cottage did not meet your expectations. We are very keen to make your stay as pleasant as possible which was why we contacted you and provided you with your extra requirements the very next day . We are also sad to hear that your sleep was disturbed. We now have a few comments on line that mention the noisy road which prompted me to ask a guest if they would return- the guest replied yes it would not put me off from returning as it was in a perfect spot for the town, also adding that what we offered was so comfortable, clean and quirky. Another guest has also made a point in their review that they agreed the road was noisy however they had researched the area and arrived knowing that it was on a main road out of Horncastle as the photo clearly depicts (and does not show a front garden) . It is unfortunate that I have to leave the dustbins in the yard. They can be moved away to near the entrance or you can use the screen provided. I would like to point out that I place cleanliness a top priority for the cottage and that I am proud to claim that I do have some consistency in scoring a high mark for cleanliness. Property Owner
