    “Cleanliness of kitchen area, cupboards and cutlery was poor.”

    We had to wash the cutlery as there was previous food stains from last customers on plates / clean surfaces etc. Also, new pans and cooking utensils would be useful as existing stuff is old, dirty and bits peeling off, such as from black pans. ...

    We had to wash the cutlery as there was previous food stains from last customers on plates / clean surfaces etc. Also, new pans and cooking utensils would be useful as existing stuff is old, dirty and bits peeling off, such as from black pans. Carpet on one stair going up from kitchen loose and potentially danderous..needs tacking down. However, beautiful house and we will definitely recommend to family and friends. We had a fantastic 2 weeks. The welcome pack with food & tea/coffee etc was a lovely touch. Thanks
