Good first impressions, but that soon disappeared.. Dirty inside badly fitting cupboards and drawers, looked like gravy inside one drawer. Plates dirty and stuck together, oven and microwave dirty with baked on carbon. Built in fridge had “water” in the bottom, and smelled bad. Other fridge/freezer needs defrosting. Kitchen tap needs reattached to sink. Wood burner looks good, or would if we could use it! The door has no catch, so can’t even nearly close it. No teapot or frying pan. Place mats and coasters dirty. There is a bad mould buildup in two the showers. Floors in the two upstairs bedrooms creak very badly. This cottage is suffering very badly from a lot of TLC. We holiday regularly in cottages in Scotland, but this experience has been the worst we have had in the years we have done this. I telephoned the key holder with my concerns, but was told there was not enough time between guests to fully check everything, and the previous guests have obviously not cleaned after themselves. Not really happy with this though, as it is the middle of Winter, hardly rushed off their feet with bookings.
All in all, we shall not be back here, and it was spoiled our previous good experiences of cottage holidaying, which is a great shame!
