Family holiday
From the outside the cottage looked wonderful. When we entered the cottage it looked nice and presentable. We then started to notice the amount of flies! Yes we understand that we were staying on a farm but with even the doors and windows closed we were still surrounded by these flies to the extent that we had to go out and by more fly spray. The sleeping arrangements on the first night didn't go well as the slats came off one of the single beds which meant an elderly family member having to put her mattress on the floor to sleep for the duration of the holiday. Very disappointed family.
