Just got back from a weeks stay and upon arrival the house looked lovely, great size and space for us all. However once inside it became apparent that the house was a little tired and in need of updating and items and fixtures fixing. Blinds were broken in both the main house and cottage and the bedding smelt damp. We...

Management response:

Thank you for your valued review and comments. I am sorry some of the areas of the house have seen some wear this season and were not to an acceptable standard.
