    “List of three minor points were left on exit.”

    Nothing spectacular just, perhaps, helpful.

    - Mr Marett, September 2021

    Thank you Mr Marrett for taking the time to write a review. So glad you enjoyed your stay in The Shippen and that you " would recommend us to others." ( Written in your note ). There isn't a broom, as we don't expect guests to clean the cabin during a holiday. A rubber mat for the bath, is, we feel unhygienic. The pull cord that was broken during your stay has been replaced. Thank you for pointing these things out. Best wishes. Kind Property Owner
