The cottage was in a great location for us, a maximum of 45mins to get to everywhere we wanted to visit.. It was well equipped and very warm and comfortable, and the owners were very welcoming but not intrusive. We had a lovely week away and would definitely visit the East Coast again. The only downsides were that i think the previous occupants had left the kitchen in a bit of a mess, although the cottage had been cleaned and mopped and all of the rooms were tidy, the kitchen cabinets were dirty, they were covered in grease and food splashes, and all of the cups, bowls, plates and cutlery were dirty and sticky. It did not ruin our stay though as a quick rinse in the dishwasher sorted them out. The only other issue that we had is the cottage is clearly used by dog owners most of the time, and the bedrooms and sofa did have a smell of musty dog about them, particularly in the master bedroom with the en-suite. An air-freshner and a bottle of Febreeze sorted out the worst of it but the smell was still noticeable in the master bedroom. Overall the cottage was well kept and we saw that the owner was regularly making repairs and cleaning the other cottages in the complex, it is clearly very well maintained and we had a great holiday. Our only suggestions would be a deep clean of the kitchen area, a carpet shampoo once a month to keep it fresh, and a new sofa cover.
