Great holiday! We will be back!!
The backyard is awesome! We loved everything about this property and will definitely come back. Great location and wonderful owners! Great vacation!
Great potential but needing a deep clean and updating
I thought long and hard about writing a review. The owner is very pleasant, responsive and accommodating however when we arrived, the cottage was not cleaned, beds not made and dirty dishes. Not a good start. In fact the owner had to uncover and sweep off the patio furniture when showing us around. The lawn looked like it had about 3-4 weeks growth and should have been cut to reduce the bugs/mosquitos to enjoy the fire.
The cottage itself is a nice layout and has everything you could need - albeit very cluttered. It could do with removal of some items (suitcases under beds, boxed toys etc). Gave a feeling that this is a dumping ground for old stuff that the owner no longer needed. The dishes, cutlery/utensils have all seen better days. Coffee/tea stains in mugs and blunt knives - really a bunch of left overs grouped together. Oven trays still had stuck on food and put away in drawers. We did not use the BBQ either as it was not very appealing, lots of black burnt on grease etc couldn’t trust it. Cottage needs a bit of updating. Nice to have a second fridge and freezer available. The ice maker didn’t work though.
We found number clumps of dog hair under the beds and sofas - as if just swept off the floor and out of sight.
The cottage is in a great location - we spent most of our time out of the house and away or in the garden.
The owner did offer some compensation for the our poor start by refunding roughly half a days fee. We did leave early (even though we had paid for the full week) as we did not feel comfortable.
All in all, a cottage with huge potential but needing some updating and decluttering.
Personally, the experience has put us off going back. Other may find it better.
