  • “Where do I start, On arrival into the property all we could smell was 'Wet Dogs' the very large blue bottle flies also told us about the property.”


    The lighting in the lounge was inadequate, very dull. The curtains were heavy and dense, which held in the smell. They had pulls which didn't work properly to open and close them. The carpets and furniture was dated and covered in dog hair, as well as other stains. Upstairs was ok, although the steep stairs to the upper floor wasn't used. That top floor bedroom isn't viable as a bedroom, headspace is ok if you're two foot tall? The bathroom with the bath in was ok, although the basin had a hot tap which was loose, and silicone sealant was split. The shower enclosure in the other bathroom was ok, nothing a good clean wouldn't help. The main bedroom was ok, although once in the bed you wanted to get out of it. I'm pretty sure it wasn't even a double. The quilt/duvet was of poor quality and the pillows, well I suggest they get thrown away quickly. Back downstairs, the fireplace was a nice look, that's it as you couldn't use the woodburner. The bench table top was very wonky. The kitchen seemed sticky to touch, my wife spent ages cleaning the surfaces before we used anything and again it was all very dated. All the windows were dirty inside and out. The two sofas were awful, stained, grubby and of poor quality that even febreeze couldn't help change. If a fogging machine was used in this property, may I suggest you plug it in? I could go on but a break away we had, just a shame our holiday home couldn't make it a special stay. May I suggest a good revamp and redecoration throughout this property, and make use of the beams better, and change the furniture is a must do.
