    “Very nice spacious clean cottage in great location.”

    Good WiFi with smart TV without freeview. Shower perfect with good pressure. Parking excellent, with lovely safe enclosed garden for dogs. Listing mentions garden furniture which was absent, would be great for hot summer evenings. Also bin collection instructions out of date and bin area outside was full of uncollected rubbish from previous customers and not been cleaned for a while. Overall had a great stay, recommend definitely. Roman

    We're sorry to hear about the few issues you had. We had garden furniture on order and it's now in situ. And apologies about the bin store. The local council have a new policy since April and we haven't updated the instructions. We shall certainly clean the bin store more regularly. Thank you for letting us know Property Owner
