    “The only thing to improve would be the minute quadrant shower cubicle, there is room for a larger one, I dropped the soap and had to open the doors to bend down to retrieve it!”

    I am by no means an obese person. It is not helped by the control system which extends into the cubicle a long way. The property suffered from an awful lot of cobwebs, between ceiling beams, behind wardrobes etc.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have not yet heard a negative comment about the shower size being a problem. We are sorry it did not suit your needs on this occasion. Cobwebs are very tricky to alleviate as they may appear after the clean has occurred. I do hope these things did not impact upon your stay too much. - The Cornish Cottage Holidays Team.
