“Be Careful”
Reviewed 6 May 2012 for a stay in April 2012
people found this review helpful

The house at first is stunning but did have a few issues. The main shower would literally scald you if a tap was turned on anywhere else in the house. The ensuite shower leaked really badly and soaked the whole floor. Downstairs bed so low to the floor that was not suitable for everyone. Small double is really no more than a single room with a very very small double in, not suitable for two people.
We went out one day and came back to find someone in the house doing repairs without being warned. Also was never given an inventory and when it came to getting cash deposit back were told we had more or less stolen a throw from the front room. £20 was then deducted from our deposit even though we assured her we had not stolen anything. This has left my Mum very distressed as she has never been accused of stealing before and why would anyone steal a throw!! So for future guests ask for an inventory as you have no come back if accused of taking something.

Until this incident, even with other issues we would have rebooked as is one of the cheapest holiday homes we have been to but wonder now if the reason is because no one rebooks! Whilst I am sure there are dishonourable people out there I doubt if they could afford these sorts of breaks, whilst we can afford our own throws!!!
