    “The cottage was in a very peaceful location and was comfortable and well equipped.”

    The downside of the cottage for us was that it needed a deep clean as it smelt musty on entering the cottage. The bed framework on the king size bed could do with a good clean. The other problem for us being a mature couple was the lack of direct access from the car to the cottage for unloading and loading the car.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are pleased you found our property to be peaceful, comfortable, and well equipped. On immediate inspection, nowhere in The Blue House was identified as being dirty, usually after cleaning, there could be a faint odour of polish. The bed framework mentioned, is a carved rococco style bed, which is painted white with shabby chic highlights, quite the up-market finish, and not at all dusty. As you parked outside of Jasmine you were closer than the normal parking area, which had no steps or uneven surfaces. Property Owner
