    “We felt they had miss sold it suitable for adults as the bump beds were a bit wobbly for adults.”

    also no wardrobe or draws to put clothes not really acceptable for a weeks holiday ...

    also no wardrobe or draws to put clothes not really acceptable for a weeks holiday. THe cottage could have done with a good clean and some TLC Theres a lot of pointless thinks around the cottage There wasnt any games which it advertised The plug was pointless in the kitchen sink it didn't fit and no bowl provided so a lot of water wasted Also the cups where stained need a good clean. There needs to be a list of what goes in which recycling bin as all areas of the country are different The fridge temp needs to be checked as it wasnt cold enough It seemed the owner was controlling the heating so at times it was either way to warm again a waste of money as we opened the windows Also it seams the boiler is shared with next door mmm THe good point going for the cottage is the location we could not fault that. If they update and clean the cottage it would be great One last thing we had to chase our good house keeping money before we got it back and took long than the 7 days advertised

    Thank you for your kind review, I am glad you enjoyed the location and experience of staying in an authentic Cotswolds Cottage. I wanted to respond to some points as they need clarity. This listing is supported with many photographs showing the property, layout, furniture set up etc so I feel its unfair to say you have been miss sold. The property is a typical one of its type in this beautiful Cotswolds area, so storage is there and is in keeping with the space. The heating is on a Nest Thermostat, so I can be sure its at the right temperature before guests arrive, as I am not local to the cottage. To add I own the neighbouring property and assure that the services are in no way joined. Cleaning issues I have checked and am satisfied they are of a continual high standard, I run this as a business and have done for over 4 years, high standards of cleanliness are essential. With regards to the house keeping bond, I am not given details automatically in order to send through the bond monies; at the time of your stay I was myself also away, so this combination may have caused a delay in its refund. Many thanks,Charmaine Owner relations
