Beautiful location, we enjoyed different walks every day and loved the area, and how dog-friendly it all is.. Previous occupants (mostly) had written glowing reports. But there needs to be some care and attention to the accommodation in our view. It’s small, but that’s fine, that’s what we wanted, but it’s not mega-cheap - £633 at Easter - so expectations are quite high. We ended up leaving early.
The rats: we saw the devices to keep rodents out but they weren’t entirely successful. Scrabblings in the walls which drove us and the dog mad at night, and rat poo in the bathroom.
The shower: doesn’t work, the shower head moves about, soaking the bathroom and not the person in the shower. Needs two people to get one person clean, which can be fun, but not necessary!
The kitchen tap: we couldn’t stop it dripping and it’s so close to the bedroom it was very annoying at night. We ended up putting a washing up sponge under it but it wasn’t great.
The kitchen: we cook rather than eating out. The kitchen was tiny as expected, no problem. If only the fridge door and the cooker door opened the other way out it would have been perfect for us, but the way it is it needed contortionism beyond my skills. The freezer compartment door kept falling off also.
We didn’t write anything negative in the Visitors’ Book, as it was so gorgeous a place, but it needs a bit of sorting.
