    • Disliked: Cleanliness

    The small cottage units which they have available for rent are very jaded and in need of some tlc, and apart from the bedsheets having been changed, it was clear that the floor had not been vucuumed and there was dust and cobwebs all round the property. The property is not suitable for 4 adults which were in our party as the sofa bed in the lounge area is not long enough for an adult and the bathroom is only accesible through the bedroom. As we were sold this unit on the basis of 4 adults staying it was very awkward and the owner of the property really could not care less short of selling us additional accomodation next door which smelt badly of damp and had squahed insects on the bathroom floor which no one had bothered to clear up.
