    “When we arrived the next door neighbour had ladies pants drying in the window (nothing to do with the cottage I know) but strange.”

    .... ...

    .... On first arrival it seemed lovely apart from a problem with the shower which in fairness was fixed pretty quickly, it is however a TINY shower and bathroom. It's only when you've stayed at a place for a few days that you start to notice things. Outside under the front window were several old window casings. A black bag was left there too, when I looked inside the bag it had rubbish in it including bags of dog poo. I had to dispose in the several bins at the side of the property. We had to sleep apart as the double bed was too short for my 6'1" husband because of the footboard. He had to sleep diagonally so we thought we'd try the two single beds in the other bedroom. One of the mattresses was fine but the other was terrible, springs could be felt even just sitting on the bed. Luckily we took cotton sheets and covers with us, the duvet covers were polyester and not breathable so it was a good job we did. The rugs in the lounge and the bedroom needed a really good clean as they were stained. The furniture was not comfortable and the dining chairs extremely basic. The kitchen worktops under the rim were sticky and needed cleaning. The garden bench had been painted but was so old and flimsy it would only be suitable for children to sit on. To sum up, the cottage was not in a nice location, it needs some tlc, but there was every pot, pan and small items that you could think of. Pretty decor but not up to scratch for the cost.
