I looked forward to a luxurious relaxing weekend with great friends. What I got was the most uncomfortable and intimidating 17 hours. The male owner stood over us 6 ladies while we were in the hot tub and told us we were not welcome as we had no males with us and he didn't allow single sex bookings. Our other mistake was enjoying a long over-due catch up as a group of six friends from north and south Wales. We hadn't realised that the hot tub was out of bounds after 9pm and we were still enjoying the views and good company at 10.15 when he came out and confronted us. We had to ask him to give us a few moments of privacy as we are 50something years of age and his presence was intimidating.
Things got worse as 9.30am he knocked on the cottage door and demanded that we all left within the hour!! We phoned the holiday cottage agents who couldn't believe his unreasonable behaviour. They immediately offered us a refund of their agency fees but this was nowhere near the £630 that we had paid for 3 nights stay.
We were determined not to let his aggressive intimidating behaviour ruin our long awaited weekend away and managed to find a cottage 40 miles away. We left just after midday after he had checked over the cottage which we had left spotless apart from a shower gel mark on one of his bath towels. He charged us £17 for this towel!
This was a very upsetting experience which thankfully ended in us getting a full refund from the agent. Please do not book this cottage.
