Overall the bungalow (not a cottage) was fine, the rooms were a good size and the kitchen was well equipped.. It was detached, so this suited us very well, in a quiet location, great little garden overlooking the countryside. It is in a nice location with easy access to the attractions. It was great sitting outside to eat and to relax. The little sign on the grass verge was too small and not noticeable enough. The parking for 2 cars was a bit tight, as the lane was quite narrow. The hedges may need to be cut back a bit. There were a few issues;
-There were no bin bags so this was highly inconvenient and we had to then try and purchase some. It was very inconvenient having to dispose of our rubbish and recycling ourselves, it would have been better if this could have been done by the cleaner after we had checked out. It was quite difficult to find the facilities to dispose of the rubbish and recycling, as we were not locals and did not really know where to go.
- There were no tea towels, so it was difficult to dry the crockery and cutlery, had we known, we would have brought some. In addition to this, there was no draining rack, which meant when we washed up we had to dry plates etc as there was no where to stack them.
-The bathroom door did not have a lock, which wasn't a great problem but the spring in the door handle had gone, so the door wouldn't close at all, so kept opening, which was annoying when we were using the bathroom, as we were not with family but with another couple (friends)
-The water pressure in the shower was very low, so showering was not great.
-We were not told until after we booked that the dogs could not be left in the bungalow un-supervised, this would have been helpful to have known before booking, so we could have made an informed decision.
-The bungalow was quite dusty as well.
-The lighting in the kitchen was too dark, the spot lights need to be brighter, as it was difficult in the evening when preparing food.
-The mattress in the double room was too soft for me, but my husband liked it,
-The iron leaked even when it wasn't on, the ironing board needs to have a new cover.
