“Not as good as before”
Reviewed 4 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

GOOD

Convenient location several miles from the town centre. Convenient for access to East Neuk villages. Dog walks to Fairmont golf club – where drinks can be enjoyed at the outside bar overlooking the course.
Clean inside.
Allow dogs.
Wi-fi.

NOT SO GOOD

The property is in need of many repairs.
For example, at least one bedroom cupboard door would not open.
When it rained the external gutters leaked water down the walls of the cottage, probably further damaging it.
The rear garden of #1 was not so attractive as the other properties – it only had a cheap and dirty plastic table as opposed to the landscaped seating areas in the adjacent gardens.
When we arrived we wanted to let our dog out in the back garden, but I had to spend ages tidying the place up – from litter left by previous guests and a large amount of animal waste left by wild rabbits. I know it is the countryside but it is possible to keep a garden tidier than this. The grass was cut in the middle of our stay – prior to which it looked as if it had not been cut for quite a few weeks.
The “shower” is a hose attached to the bath taps. Signs on the wall warn you that water temperatures can fluctuate, but nothing can quite prepare you for the experience of being scalded standing in this shower. The spray holder is attached to the side wall of the bath making access and use very difficult. Surely if there is a genuine problem with water temperature regulation then the fitting of a standard electric shower is the answer ?
On our second day the boiler did not work and we had no hot water in the morning. To the proprietor’s credit they received my message – via some sort of third party call centre – and the boiler was restarted. The next day a guy appeared to have another look at it, and when he opened the kitchen cupboard the front panel of the boiler fell off ! It did not fill us with much confidence that it was safe. Not sure if a CO detector has been fitted in the property.
No mobile signal – at least on Three network. Not the property’s fault just something to be aware of.
The instruction booklet contains info for appliances ( e.g. TV ) that are not even present.
Disappointing given we had stayed here a few years back. Time has sadly crept up on Kittock’s corner.
