Absolutely loved our stay at this cottage. It’s in a quiet area and had all we needed for our stay. the large bed upstairs was super comfy. towels clean as was the bedding. no lack of facilities here, washing machine, microwave, fridge freezer, cooker. the beach was minutes away and was very clean and even better, it was dog friendly. a nearby cafe served excellent food to suit all and welcomed our dog as well. We will definitely be back!
Where do I start?
Well first of all the contact numbers given belong to people who no longer work for Carl so we were left without any help.
Day one arrived at the cottage to find paint peeling and obvious signs of damp.
Couldn’t use the tv because apparently the previous visitors dog had eaten the remote!
The place was cold so rather than sitting in the cold and gloom went to bed at 9pm the first night.
The heating was coming on at random times during the night with a radiator just behind my head in bed so waking me up all night. I found the boiler and saw that the timer control just fell off in my hand.
Tried to report to HomeAway the following day as there was no other contact but nobody seemed to be able to contact the owner.
Eventually found a tiny scrap of paper on the kitchen windowsill with a name and number so rang that and found it was the current cleaner who tried to be helpful.
We had also paid an extra £17.99 for internet only to find it had parental controls on it so could not access social media or anything else we may wish to.
The third night was the final straw. Whilst making a slice of toast the electricity blew and we were plunged into darkness. No candles or torch to be found so once again it was bed at 9pm.
Needless to say we called it quits and left for home after 3 nights instead of the 7 we had paid for.
I’ve left it a couple of weeks before writing this to see if we would get any compensation for a ruined holiday or at least an apology but nothing!
I have noted that on previous reviews the owner has said that he doesn’t recognise them as guests but let me assure you I was there, I have photos of the damp walls and screenshots of my payment details. I don’t usually write scathing reviews but feel so angry to be disregarded in this way that I feel I have to prevent others from wasting their precious holidays here.
Just back from a four night break to this beautiful cottage.
From the moment we stepped inside we knew we would be comfortable & perfectly at home.
It had everything we could wish for & more.
The most comfortable bed we have ever slept in (& the biggest)
Thank you for sharing your gorgeous home from home.
Just returned from a four night stay what a quaint setting. We had two adults a child and a dog staying and everything you needed was provided in the cottage, we had a lovely time and would love to return again.
