  • "The cottage looked great on the website and had all the essentials, but in reality was missing a few creature comforts/luxuries that I would have expected to be included for the price which we felt was expensive."

    e.g. towels were small, electric shower only got half of you wet, bath took half an hour to run by which time the water was getting cold, only one bedside light in the second double bedroom, a few extras items of kitchen equipment would be 'nice to have' - e.g. salad/mixing bowl, pizza cutter, more than one chopping board, some large glasses. The biggest issue is that the cottage has a damp problem - this is clearly visible on the walls by almost all the windows and on the bathroom ceiling etc. it manifested itself in clothes and bedding feeling clammy. Luckily the problem is not so bad (yet) that the cottage smells of damp. Unfortunately we didn't have good weather while we were there (October half term) and there is no easy way to dry off rain jackets, waterproof trousers or boots let alone laundry. One thing that wouldn't be a problem for most people is that we took our dog with us, but there is no door on the kitchen or living room, so we had build a barricade every night to make sure she stayed downstairs! There were plenty of positives - the cottage is in a great location and was very clean and nicely presented, good information about the local area had also been provided - with a few extras and the dampness sorted out it would be really great.
