- After reading some of the reviews about this cottage we weren't exactly looking forward to what we were going to find. Anyway, first impressions, not too bad. Spacious, clean and perfectly located for where we wanted to visit.
After unpacking and srttli g in we found that the cottage is in need of some TLC, one of the kitchen cupboards was broken, the oven door is dangerous, when you open it the glass slides out, one of the fronts on the chest of drawers in the double bedroom downstairs comes off. The dining table is wobbly, some of the chairs were too, the bathroom downstairs has an over the bath shower, it is in dire need of a new seal, everytime we had a shower it flooded the bathroom. The water temp downstairs not hot either. The shower was warm but didn't get hot.
The fridge isn't brilliant, the door doesn't close properly so it doesn't stay cold. Not good as we had lots of food in it, freezer works well though.
There were 6 adults staying at the cottage, we struggled with comfy seating as only 2 sofas, seats 4 comfortably but not 6.
Not sure what it is with the floor but wow it's noisy, all over the house every single step is heard except for the first staircase. It sounds like you're walking through fresh deep snow lol
We loved the location, it was central to all the places we visited. It is by a busy road but it was OK.
Can I also point out that when you arrive at the cottage it's one of 3, there are no numbers or names to define which one you're actually staying in.
No instructions regards where to take our rubbish, no recycling facilities either.
