“Rustic, cosy cottage in a central location for touring the Jurassic Coast and countryside.”
Bedrooms and bathroom upstairs had good facilities and enough cupboards and drawers for storage.
Under floor heating was comfortable with ability to control thermostats.
There is no dishwasher which is fine but the property could do with some more crockery.... eg bowls, pasta bowls, small plates.
The fridge is far too small and at a low level. The kitchen could accommodate a larger, upright fridge and this will improve the comfort of buying in food and drink to last a few days, especially when weather is bad and you wish to enjoy the property.
I read through some of the previous comments from guests and one person, some time ago, recommended a hairdryer as she had forgotten hers. I still didn’t see one in the property.
Garden.... although it states clearly that the garden isn’t enclosed, it wasn’t clear to us that the garden is on the side (rather than the back) of the property and facing the very busy road.
The traffic noise at peak times in the mornings and evenings was annoying.... could the windows at the front be triple glazed??
On arrival, we found rubbish in the bins inside the property and the outside bins were overflowing as they had not been put out on the Thursday night by previous guests. We arrived on the Saturday. The bins were attracting flies.
Also, we were not impressed with the cleanliness of the property for our arrival. We found dust and coins, paper clips on the bureau and cobwebs everywhere and when our puppy lost her ball under the cupboards and drawer units in the lounge and bedroom, the dirt, mess and hair found on the floor was disgusting.
Thank you for your feedback and it’s great that you found Way’s Forge to be a cosy rustic cottage with good facilities and storage, along with comfortable underfloor heating. With so many excellent reviews we are sorry that the cleaning was not perfect on this occasion, which is an isolated case, however, the owner would have been keen to arrange a revisit immediately from the cleaning team had we been made aware, using the details we provide.
I am sorry that you did not locate the hairdryer which is kept in a drawer in the main bedroom and unfortunately due to being a very old building dating back to 1830s, triple glazing is not a possibility. We do hope that both our description and photos do show the property and its gardens as clearly as possible.
We look forward to welcoming you to another Dream Cottages holiday soon.
