Please take this seriously, I hate writing bad reviews, but I've stayed in a few holiday cottages over the last few years and this is by far the worst and if I can spare someone a disappointing stay, I'll be glad.
We stayed at Old Court number 23, booked direct with the owners, not John Fowler Holidays. Thankfully we were only staying for 3 nights, but I seriously considered returning home sooner. The main problems here are: poor cleaning, a lack of investment, awful smell of stale cigarette smoke and the pet friendly policy.
The cleanliness is poor. When we opened the front door of the property, we were greeted by a stale smell of cigarette smoke and dogs. A bad start. Then we moved upstairs and found the bathroom was tired and not clean enough. Specifically the shower tray still had the last occupants' hair and grit in it. There is some interesting mould growing up it (see pics).
I wasn't able to sleep in the bed because of the strong smell of cigarette smoke on the pillows and duvet. I slept on the sofa for one night, putting up with the strong smell of dog and various pet hairs sticking to my clothes.
The broken shard of glass sticking up from the air freshener bottle (left on the lamp table) and the fact that the smoke alarm was not attached to the ceiling when we arrived were a mild health & safety concern. The ground pepper scattered in the cutlery drawer was also quite grim. In short, you have to wash everything before you use it. Whoever cleans & inspects this property between guests is not doing a good job.
