Nearly perfect
Had a really enjoyable week staying in Kingfisher. We had booked the cottage because it had a downstairs bedroom but was disappointed to find two steps to climb to get into it which the person couldn't manage but could have done if a rail was provided. But where theres a will theres a way an there was an alternative route into the room. The bedrooms would benefit from a chair in each and there still the thorny issue of a lack of coffee table. I wonder how many times people have brought the outside one in. Apart from this a lovely place to stay.

This was our second visit to kingfisher Cottage....last year we stayed and it was lovely so we rebooked for this year.we stayed 1 week.......it did feel like the cottage was never cleaned from the last people that stayed......there was a stain on the floor next to the settee.food around the edges in the kitchen.....the bottom of the certains was filthy ......our bed had dog hairs in......the toilets smelled.....and to top it off there was dog poo outside as well......we booked through Skye cottages .we did ring up and have a chat with them...they was very apologetic and we did get a ?50 refund......but when you pay ?800 for a week you expect the cottage to be spotless....definitely not returning to kingfisher.and the beds was uncomfortable
