“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and loved the cottage and the site it was on.”
We enjoyed having the extra bathroom and a downstairs loo.
The addition of travel cots, high chairs, stair gates and booster seats was great with a little one.
The bedding was a little rough - the double bed had a very small double quilt on it, which meant the quilt didn't cover both the people. The mattress protectors should have been thrown out years ago!!! The quilts and pillows were extremely thin and worn, and the headboards were all broken where they fitted the top of the beds.
The en-suite taps had to be turned and turned before we could get the water out, and the en-suite loo didn't fill up with water at all well after a flush - my husband managed to fiddle with it to make it better, however it was still very slow to fill and caused a lot of noise at night.
The microwave didn't heat very well, and the minute button didn't work. The oven took a lot of figuring out, and we had to put the timer on to make it work, which meant the timer had to go on for longer to take into account the warming up time of the oven.
The dishwasher was a great addition - however more mugs particularly, plates, cutlery and bowls were needed to account for those in the dishwasher which had been used earlier in the day.
The washing machine and airers were great particularly with a 2 year old.
The large towels we're a great size, and good quality. Maybe a few more hand towels for the bathrooms.
The heaters upstairs we good, however the ones downstairs being storage heaters meant that we couldn't get the heat we wanted when we needed it.
Furniture downstairs was good and comfy, having internet is a must these days - however it was very slow.
Overall it was a great time away - I have only mentioned the above, as some of the little niggles can be rectified for future customers easily, and bits like the bedding definitely need sorting ASAP.
I have run a Retreat and Conference centre so I know how all of these things are important.
