    Facilities very poor, wifi didn't work and had to use the caretakers wifi. Lack of cutlery in kitchen. Matresses belong on a rubbish tip as the springs had gone and bedding though hopefully clean had not been ironed. Lightbulbs not working, window in one room didn't open and close properly, cobwebs and dirt behind furniture, flowerpot full of cigarette ends outside backdoor with cigarette ends all over floor. Courtyard smelt of cigarette smoke throughout the week. We all got bitten by something numerous times over the week and believe it was in the cottage. After a while of having centre light on in one of the bedrooms, there was an awful smell which went away when light was switched off. We had to fix shower before using it. Towels supplied were old and mismatched. We were told we would be greeted when we arrived, so waited for a while in the courtyard, noone greeted us and as key was in door we let ourselves in. Such a shame as the cottage is nice, and ideally situated in beautiful surroundings. However, I would never stay there again nor would recommend it to anyone

    The property was spacious in a peaceful location. We were a group of 6, it would have been better if there was more cutlery. We just had to wash up between courses!
