    After spending a week here we realise we must check previous reviews vigorously before booking. I've stayed in holiday cottages/homes for over 30 yrs. I have a coal fire myself...so i know how to set a fire & you dont set it with green twigs, 2 half charred burnt logs! To say there was enough wood etc for first night was incorrect. A coal bucket empty...only 3 logs in the basket. Not even a pint of milk in the fridge...lucky we had to go out & get wood & coal. I've never stayed anywhere there wasnt even a small welcoming basket. It really doesnt cost that much. As for the fire when was it last cleaned/swept...i have all mine done yearly...this should be put in the book. When making the fire...smoke in the room...we had to open windows & doors! Last 2 nights we didn't bother as it affected my eyes! This is 'Health & Safety' & needs addressing! As for cleanliness the bath was filthy...needed a good scrub...really needs regrouting! Mould on the ceiling! We had waste washes at the sink instead...I don't go on holiday to clean other peoples grime! There was a message stating no bleach but I use eco friendly products & my cottage is spotless! Attached photos. We only slept in the double bed first night...so uncomfortable felt the springs. There have been reviews stating this...wish we'd seen them. We were shattered on the sunday...ended up sleeping in the twin room...how romantic...not!! The heating was hit & miss...upstairs wasnt working at all in the mornings...last night suddenly too hot to touch in the night for a couple of hours...downstairs just warm! The mosquito bites...cobwebs from lighting...we stayed in Scotland in March so clean & they had plug ins as i do when needed....not that costly. 1 star for the fact we didnt have far to drive to local properties & walks...we stayed out as long as we could! Never again...
