Smells of damp, is damp and body hair in the bathroom!!!
Visited this cottage for a long weekend over August bank holiday. On entering the porch area I could smell damp immediately and so could my partner. On opening the second door and entering the lounge the smell of damp of very evident. The walls are damp around the bottom of the lounge walls and paint flaking. There are damp to both bedroom walls upstairs around the chimney breast. We were lucky in that the weather was good we could have all doors and windows open. However when leaving the property and going home we had to wash absolutely everything, even clothes not worn due to the smell of damp on everything. Such a shame as the location is fantastic. Cleanliness not the best either. Various bits on work surface and oven in kitchen, burnt on marks on hob, and hairs in the bathroom. Hairs on the floor, in the bath and even the outside of the toilet. For the approx £500 paid for 3 nights I feel totally ripped off and Sykes who we booked through are just not interested. Closed the case I raised stating I said my husband had breathing difficulties due to the damp. Made them listen to calls when they admited I did not say this. Then changed their version to we closed the case because you said the damp made your husband ill. What I actually said was my husband had a cold most possibly made worse by the damp. I will now be going legal as owners apparently have had it checked and its water stains. I am a letting agent renting hundreds of properties and to my knowledge water stains do not smell!!! Such a shame as I leave reviews on many places and usually good ones as I realise that most people only take the time to do this when somewhere is not good. On a positive note the pub in Minions the Cheesewring where the cottage is locted is absolutely fantastic. Will certainly not be returning. I dont expect anyone to stop in a rented property with damp and then for the agent and owner to totally discredit this complaint. DONT BOOK WITH SYKES THEY TAKE YOUR MONEY AND DONT WANT TO KNOW
