On arrival, this cottage was presented as described on the website.. It was delightfully and stylishly refurbished which was what had attracted me to it, as well as only being a 5 minute walk to the village, perfect. Plenty of useful facilities, plus they had provided essentials such as dish washer tabs and tea towels. However, the entrance to the kitchen from the back door had a very distinctive smell of damp which was also apparent in the kitchen and on the stairs. I am aware it is an old cottage, but it was quite off putting as the kitchen and toilet roll had that limp feel, plus our bath towels and tea towels were not drying prior to the next use. We also used the washer which had a dryer facility (no line or pegs to hang out) which proved a waste of time. The drying cycle did not work well, so I hung the clothes on the airer I’d found, but the clothes did not fully dry as the air was damp. Very disappointing as we visited in August and felt the use of the log fire was unnecessary. The cottage was very clean but they had missed some attention to detail, such as a couple of light bulbs missing, a broken roman blind in the kitchen and hadn’t provided any matches to light the fire if we’d wanted to. You cannot reach the toilet quietly as you have to negotiate the incredibly squeaky floorboards, some might say this adds to the charm, we just found them annoying. The location of the cottage was idyllic looking over the fields, it was really pretty. Had it have not been for the damp, I would definitely stay there again, but sadly for us, it outweighed the presentation of the place.
