  • "The cottage is clean mostly well equipped."

    We had a problem with the door it was supposedly sorted, had to complain again, was made to feel it was us not lifting handle properly, we left with it not locked properly. The one biggest dissapointing thing was the garden not as advertised, chairs were dirty tables were rusty so unable to sit out. There were dead plants weeds, decking was in need of attention.

  • "Lovely cottage quiet location and very relaxing, clean and comfortable just a tiny criticism the waste bin in the bedroom had a couple of used cotton buds left in which had been overlooked."

    I’m not a fan of the pebbles in the garden but I suppose it’s lower maintenance and the decking was slippery when it rains. .

    As usual a lovely stay at iris much better now there is a grab rail outside,well equipped bungalow,comfy beds,our only concern was the bathroom needs a blind at window, as there is no extractor fan you need to have window open when in shower and it overlooks next door so if they come out of their property they can see you stood in shower

    The bathroom really needs a blind as it overlooks the neighbours front door and as there is no extractor fan you need to have window open so if neighbours come out they can see you stood in shower,the grab rail outside the front door is a great addition makes getting in much easier, the kettle stopped working but the owner replaced it immediately,we enjoyed our stay as we always do

    We went to among other places York, well worth a day. The only slight problems were aerial TV reception is unreliable and patchy but as we are not great TV watchers not an issue. Struggled with the heating instructions which I struggled to comprehend but of course that could just be me.

    There is 5-hours between change overs there should be plenty of time to reach a high standard.

  • "The bungalow was conveniently sited for bird watching, cliff walking and rock pooling."

    The property was nice and clean, although the decking was in need of a power wash. The garden furniture was a little tired, but fit for purpose. A washing up bowl would be helpful as would be at least some washing up liquid, surface cleaner and loo cleaner, I appreciate it’s a self catering holiday but a few basics but be welcome. All that said we would stay there again.

    It could have had a more thorough clean, the skirting boards had a lot of dust and dog hair, my husband even found a pubic hair on the back of the bathroom door. The oven needs a good clean and you definitely need a pair of oven gloves. All that a side, the cottage was lovely and location perfect.

    The place was in a great location. We enjoyed going out and exploring the views from the cliffs and beaches in the local areas. The bungalow was extremely clean and beautifully presented.

  • "The property was very clean and as described."

    The only issue we had was the large double right-hand side bed was in a poor state and very uncomfortable, fortunately, there were only three of us so we swapped into the smaller bedroom and used only the left and side of the large bed. I think it is most likely that someone at some time must have used the bed as a trampline as it was quite obvious that it had serious sping damage. Not wishing to sound petty but a bread knife would be a handy tool to have in the cutlery.

    The owner had supplied plenty of tea bags, coffee, sugar and milk to start us off on on our arrival. I do have one suggestion for the owner, blinds or curtains at the patio doors would make it easier to see the television when the sun is shining. Other than that everything was perfect. I would certainly recommend this property and would stay there again. One of the best we have stayed in.

    Holiday let close by to the train station and with easy access to many local attractions. The facilities are of a high standard and quality. The WiFi signal is excellent. Instructions for use of cooker and heating would have been handy as there were none and outdoor space needs to be maintained. Unfortunately on arrival which was after stated time we had to wait a further hour for the cleaner to finish and some of the towels provided although clean were still damp.
