We called the owner who contacted the cleaner who said...

Management response:

I rectified the situation within 30 minutes of being informed and did offer goodwill. However the guest asked for a lot more & threatened me with a bad review so I said to go ahead. I have a new cleaner now

Nice little well equipped terraced cottage with gas central heating/hot water, the only problems are the rustic steep stairs and a challenging location, situated at the top of two very steep hills which you need to be very healthy to walk back from the town centre after a meal & a drink. Also an awkward driveway & parking arrangement.
