Where do I start, there was so much wrong with the cottage we were left disappointed. This was a family holiday for 5 and a tiny well behaved dog.
The first main issue was the overall cleanliness, dust and webs that could only have been there for months, and a strong odour of dog/foist. We had to clean everything we used (bowls, cutlery & glasses), and had no desire to use the toaster or coffee machine due to the filth.
In the bathrooms, we used a fulll pack of antibacterial wipes before we could use them, one bathroom had a shower with mixer taps which didn't work properly, the other shower in the family room filled with water so you needed to keep turning if off to let it drain away.
The house was full of spiders and webs making it so off putting to our daughter, we moved out her bed and had to vacuum the whiole area - it was then we found out the vacuum absolutely reaked and left the whole room stinking of dirty dog!!! Believe me, everything everywhere in this house was covered in dust and hangIng with cobwebs.
The bedding and towels were grubby looking, and we were only supplied two hand and two bath towels for the family room for three! There were so many things not up to scratch such as uncomfortable lumpy beds and pillows, no opening window in kitchen, one spare toilet roll to last us the week, the old porch door dropping off etc I could go on!
Overall we were all left extremely disappointed by our stay - I know it's a 17th century farmhouse, but we should expect 21st century cleanliness. This tired place needs a professional clean in all departments, surfaces and corners, and could do with being shown some TLC on a much more regular basis - it was certainly left cleaner than when we arrived!
