    It’s a great place and literally the only negatives are: - not being able to check in until 5pm feels a little unfair and I don’t think this can really be blamed on the pandemic any more. It means visitors are missing an entire day of their stay - particularly if you’re expecting visitors to vacate at 10.00am - similarly, I think asking people to strip their own beds before they leave (not an easy task for some and not what you want to be doing before you leave the property at 10.00 on your last day) and blaming this on the pandemic is a little cheeky - I couldn’t find info on what the recycling arrangements are ie what goes in which bin etc - the tv is very basic - sound quality is very poor and very limited channels - the parking spot is extremely difficult to get into when next door are using theirs and the cottage immediately behind have a car there too. Both of these were the case throughout our stay which made it extremely challenging to get our car in every day. Would not have managed at all without parking sensors and even then it took an age, and lots of tricky manoeuvres. I suspect many people would simply not even attempt it and as there’s no very close local parking (The Square is a maximum of 2 hours) this could be a problem for some. I think it would be fair to make visitors aware of this - there’s no shower curtain in the ‘summer room’ bathroom which means the floor gets very wet if you’re not careful Although I’ve listed a few things here, this is genuinely only to give you helpful feedback. We do really like the property and there are many more positives than negatives. We would happily stay here again.

    Thank you for staying at my cottage again and thanks for the constructive feedback. I have changed the check-in to 3 pm, as I agree that 5 pm is unduly late. From now on there is also no need to strip the beds as this was purely a Covid measure. I recognise that the parking space is not ideal, but there is plenty of parking available in the town including Yarn Barton long stay car park two minutes away. I Property Owner
