    “The cottage was excellent, except that on arrival it was very cold and damp inside and smelt fusty.”

    It was obvious that no one had stayed there for a few weeks. The controller for the Central Heating was set at only 12*C so it took a couple of days for the place to feel lived in and welcoming when you walked in.
