    The location was very nice and the scenery was very good, the cottage was a good size and clean, but it needs redecorating it’s showing it’s age, there is also a smell of wet dog, especially upstairs and there must have been pets there recently as it set my daughters asthma off, also the bath is a worry as the bottom of the bath is very flexible which is disturbing. The kitchen is good and the rooms are a good size, overall it just needs redecorating apart from the kitchen.

    The views are amazing but the cottage is not up to standard. Sadly i should have checked previous reviews before i booked. They were not exaggerating!

    The location was great. The bathroom does not have any lock. The house gets very cold and heating cuts off randomly. Could do with new bed linen and improve overall cleanliness We stayed for 2 nights only but the owner charged us full 3 night charge and did not consider any discount as suggested by the cottage company. The man I spoke over the phone who was not the owner was quite abrupt.

    Staff at reception were very very helpful with our leaving date and could not do enough to help with any inquire from local knowledge on walks to taxis . Need to do something with the smell from the drains , but think this is due to the septic tank ? Overall a very relaxing stay apart from the nightly hunt for the very large spiders (would be good for Halloween )

    We booked this at short notice so the cost had been slightly reduced - so for two of us it was not really value for money - whereas 4 adults + 4 children sharing would be more cost effective. The cottage is in need of updating - the decor/curtains in the bedrooms could do with renewing and the bedrooms would benefit from net curtains as they are on the ground floor. The cleanliness could be improved - I had to clean the sinks in the utility room & the bathroom , and there were quite a few webs around the place. Many people had commented in the 'Guest Book' about the lack of refrigerator space - we only just managed to store items for the two of us - so there would definitely not be enough space for a family with children and it would be a great improvement if a larger fridge/freezer was installed in the utility room. The double bed was quite uncomfortable (again many comments to that effect in the 'Guest Book') and some of the bedding in the other bedrooms was very creased. The 'WiFi' was not very effective at all! Having said all that - the cottage was in a fabulous location - right on the canal - and the staff in the 'Tea Rooms' across the road were very friendly & helpful. We had no hot water when we returned one evening and after a quick call - it was sorted out within 15 minutes.
