    The inside of the property was very nice and we all enjoyed our stay. I cannot fault the comfort of the inside, the cottage had everything we needed and we had a wonderful family party celebrating a family wedding. However there was a problem with the drainage for two days which meant we had sewage water running through the patio seating area. As it was cold we didn't sit outside but if it had been warmer it would have been a serious problem, the same can be said if we had rented a hot tub we wouldn't have been able to use it but the extra £200 stopped us from ordering one. We were only there for four days so the drainage problem could have spoilt the holiday and it would make me stop and think before booking this property in the summer. My cleanliness reflects the drainage and not inside the property. It was clean internally.
