    “The cottage is a good size which was the only positive.”

    The heating was not on when we arrived and it took 24 hours for the cottage to warm up. The instructions say the heating is on a timer appropriate for the season, I would not say that 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the evening are appropriate when the outside temperature is barely above freezing. The shower at the property is poor - tiny shower head with a bracket which doesn't allow you to point it in the right direction. It would probably cost all of £20 to buy a decent shower head. I ...

    The heating was not on when we arrived and it took 24 hours for the cottage to warm up. The instructions say the heating is on a timer appropriate for the season, I would not say that 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the evening are appropriate when the outside temperature is barely above freezing. The shower at the property is poor - tiny shower head with a bracket which doesn't allow you to point it in the right direction. It would probably cost all of £20 to buy a decent shower head. I am surprised that Sykes / Dream Cottages would market a property in this condition.

    Thank you very much for your feedback and for bringing these issues to our attention. We are sorry to hear the heating wasn't turned on prior to your arrival, we will rectify this for future bookings. The welcome folder has instructions on how to override the timer for the heating should you need it. We will look into upgrading the shower head. We hope to welcome you back to Dorset in the future.
