    “We had a lovely stay, nice little village.”

    The shop & pub were very handy with friendly staff. The cottage was great with all its quirky features & decor & fully stocked with all the essentials . Super comfy beds & no outside noise, we slept like babies. A few snags, such as filling the bath, no big deal as the shower was there. The patio door locked was not working so we couldn’t make the best use of the riverside balcony, obviously there had been previous problems as a screwdriver was on the floor beside the door. The glass door ...

    The shop & pub were very handy with friendly staff. The cottage was great with all its quirky features & decor & fully stocked with all the essentials . Super comfy beds & no outside noise, we slept like babies. A few snags, such as filling the bath, no big deal as the shower was there. The patio door locked was not working so we couldn’t make the best use of the riverside balcony, obviously there had been previous problems as a screwdriver was on the floor beside the door. The glass door could have had a wipe down as they were smeared with hand prints & smudges, there was also a broken guitar tucked behind the sofa in the living room. Would have been nice to have a welcome book to tell us about the house & things to do in the area. However the positives far outweigh the negatives & we had a very pleasant stay.

    Hi. Thanks for your feedback. Apologies for the handle on patio door, it was working ok when I left it last time but is clearly broken, it’s being fixed this week As for smears on the door, it’s been pouring with rain every time I’ve been to the cottage to clean recently so haven’t seen it as glass has been wet.
