We have enoyed this little house for two. It is cosy and comfortable. The garden and the view are superb.
The only comment we have is that the toilet makes very much noise when flushing (at night not so nice for your partner). Also, the fridge is noisy.
Attractive property in nice location. Clean and well furnished, but fell down on a few points: -
- microwave did not appear to function
- two of the four elements on the toaster did not heat up
- the shower head appeared to be a replacement which did not attach to the support, and was really inconvenient.
Unfortunately there was no reply to a voicemail message regarding the above which we left for Hilary Cox on the first Monday of our stay. We had no contact from the owners during our stay.
Property was exactly as described. Lovely scones awaited us on arrival. Very clean and tidy. Perfect location for a relaxing break.
The Plough at Duloe is well worth a visit.
The accommodation is perfect if you want total peace and quiet but if you want to go for example to a pub or for a meal you have to go by car.
+ The scones, clotted cream and milk in the fridge and a supply of teabags when we arrived.
+ The availability of a dishwasher and washing machine.
- The fridge was making strange "breathing" noises when we arrived and we discovered that the freezer compartment was so iced up that it was necessary to defrost it which solved the problem.
- The bushes along the path leading to our accommodation need to be cut back.
- The toilet flush is extremely loud and when we came back after a day out or first thing in the morning there was an unpleasant smell in the bathroom which even with the extractor never completely went away.
- The wall behind the fridge and the boiler had mould on it and the dishes and glasses in the wooden cupboard smelt of damp and mould.
The problem is not helped by the fact that there is no extractor for the oven in the kitchen.
- The lock on the front door is not very secure. It would be very easy to break in.
- The door to the terrace has no handle on the outside. If it happens to shut while you are outside you can't get back in - this happened to my husband. Luckily I was inside and could open it.
