Mrs Ives, March 2017
Lovely cottage in good location in the village.. Well appointed, nice furniture, towels, bed linen. Extremely clean. Thanks for tea, coffee, sugar, milk, biscuits. Double and King size beds very comfortable, 2 singles less so. Key arrangement good as did not have to take it with us and worry about who had it. Small bedroom needs better arrangement of side lights. Sofas and chair in sitting room very low. Maybe a grab rail in shower and above the bath would be helpful for those of us who are older/disabled. Nails in floor of main bedroom at end of bed need to knocked in more. Curve of inside staircase difficult for 1 person who uses crutches at the moment more rails could help. 2 people with mobility problems (i with stick, 1 with crutches) found outside steps slippery in the rain, not helped by gate at top which had nowhere to secure it and which turned off outside light if pressed against it. Also top step much higher than the others. A Bannister of some sort would be helpful along the wall and including the small steps from the car parking area and perhaps relocating the light switch, maybe have one near the front door and one near the gate that can't be turned off by it. Sounds like lots of complaints but we did enjoy the cottage, would stay there again in spite of difficulties - just a few thoughts which could improve things. Have written this in the Visitors' book.
