We were disappointed in the inflexibility of the agents for the property.. Although the bookings were shown as being from Saturday we booked from Wednesday to Wednesday (20-27 March).
Shortly after we had booked we learned that a friend's funeral was taking place on the Thursday (21st). We checked and the accommodation was still vacant for the days following our booking, so we rang and asked to change our booking from the Wednesday to either later on the Thursday or the Friday, leaving the following Thursday or Friday. We were told that, since it was within six weeks of the booking, we could not change our dates, even though they were still free and did not encroach on the next weekend booking date. We then decided to attend the funeral and travel down on the Friday, still leaving on the 27th (Wed), thus shortening our stay. The accommodation itself was exactly suited to our needs, and the owner's directions were far more helpful than the agent's, so we greatly enjoyed our stay and extended our break by staying at other places on our way back to London.
