“The property had an overwhelming smell of damp, the windows were filthy and many of them wouldn't open meaning the ventilation was poor.”
We love Staithes and go every year for a week. We have booked a different cottage for next year - whilst looking we noticed the price for the same week in Kippers Corner next year had gone up by several hundred pounds - almost to the same price we are paying next year for a larger and much more well maintained holiday cottage just across the road!
The windows need sorting, the damp needs sorting, the beds need sorting (slats were missing and some of the sheets need replacing as the double on the top floor was thin, old and bobbly )
The good things were the location, the decor, the kitchen equipment was fine, the shower was good (altho the door kept coming off)
