All same complaints as those before, they simply do not care about you, demand money up front and have no cares about your comfort at all. We were told washing would be collected on a certain day everyweek, stripped beds, and no one came, then told, they did come but couldnt find the huge pile we left in the middle of the floor, then told the owner would collect it. Raced back to the house to meet her, she never turned up, apparenlty having no need to visit that evening after all.
Washing was never collected on day it was supposed to be, one morning she even walked another potential customer thru the cottage at 8am because I had no responded to her one call on my mobile ( during usual morning activities I had missed the call). We said the heating didnt work, she gave a vague disinterested attempt to fiddle with it then said " well you dont want it too hot".
The cottage we stayed in was decorated dreadfully, dark, miserable and a snail left its trail across the floor nealry ever night! ON puling out the furniture to try and find it, we noticed huge amounts of dust and dirt. Its a shame as a lick of paint would have made a huge difference.
We were not made to feel welcome, more like an irritant, and I would not recomened this place to anyone who works hard for their money and wants to spend it on value and quality. I always consult Alister Sawday guides when we go away, I have never ever put a foot wrong with them, the people who run guest houses seem to be natural hosts and geuinly seem to want to meet and spoil people with hospitality.
We only ended up at this place because our house was flooded.
Dont do it.
