    “Property was fine but I'm afraid cleanliness was an issue for me considering there was a note that suggested extra cleaning due to covid.”

    Kitchen surfaces were dirty and had crumbs. Cups, glasses, plates, bowls and saucepans all had to be cleaned prior to use. The cutlery tray is also dirty. Hoovering had not been done well, as there was dust and hair around the edges of the living area. The TV unit was dusty and hairy. ...

    Kitchen surfaces were dirty and had crumbs. Cups, glasses, plates, bowls and saucepans all had to be cleaned prior to use. The cutlery tray is also dirty. Hoovering had not been done well, as there was dust and hair around the edges of the living area. The TV unit was dusty and hairy. The twin room had a very dusty carpet and dog treats under the bed (noticed due to us moving the furniture to suit our needs). Main bed frame extremely dusty at the headboard end (noticed when remaking the bed each day). The mattress also has stains on (noted when removing the bedding at the end of our stay). Main bathroom, sink had not been fully cleaned behind the taps. The towel rail/radiator had not been cleaned and was dusty on every rung, as was the toilet roll holder. In addition, although it appeared clean, the toilet seat was a rather off putting aged yellow colour, with staining under the seat. The back of the bathroom door was also covered in dust. The listing suggests parking for 2 cars, this was not possible and we left our second car elsewhere during our stay. No safe path from parking area to property meant we had to walk on the grass each day. Crazy paving type stepping stones were slippery and uneven. Patio area to front of property was also slippery. External lighting was totally inadequate. We were unable to bring our dog in or out of the property without stepping onto the grass (it rained for the majority of our stay) which made keeping the property clean much more difficult. The hoover provided to enable me to clean up dog hair during my stay was not up to the job so bought my daughters one over to use. The mop has clearly been there for a very long time and requires replacing. I'm afraid I wouldn't choose to return to this property.

About the location

BLISLAND

Bodmin 5.7 miles; Wadebridge 8.4 miles; Polzeath 13.2 miles; Tintagel 13.8 miles; Padstow 16 miles; Fowey 17.2 miles.

Situated under the western edge of granite-bound Bodmin Moor, the village of Blisland retains its age old character and is the only village in Cornwall to have a village green with trees. Around the green, cluster old houses and cottages, as well as the famous, award-winning Blisland Inn. The village is located less than three miles from the A30, and so provides an ideal central location for touring Cornwall. Nearby, Poley’s Bridge marks the beginning of the Camel Trail, a 17-mile long route, which follows a long disused old steam engine railway line to Padstow. The route is completely traffic-free and perfect for walkers and cyclists. You can even explore the trail on horseback and a purpose-built hide has been constructed between Wadebridge and Padstow, so even birdwatchers are catered for! Pull on your walking boots and explore Bodmin Moor, or venture to the coast with your buckets and spades and enjoy a day on one of the many beautiful beaches that stretch along Cornwall’s northern coastline. A fabulous part of the country for all!
