Every thing we wanted
I would just like to say our stay in blacksmiths cottage shilbottle was everything we expected lovely clean warm cottage and everything you could as for lovely welcome pack even bottle of wine our stay was just perfect booked to come back in February 2022

Nothing like the photos show online.It was dirty, in bad need of maintenance ,it was very dated and not very welcoming at all!The table mats still had previous guests spilt food on them,The bath was filthy, towels had brown marks on. Couldn?t sleep on main bedroom as it had a funny smell in there.Bedding was dirty.Plates that were not clean had been put back in the cupboard. We had to wipe down and antibac work surfaces.The back doors lock and handle was hanging and needed fixing.Extremely old furniture broken and covered in silver spray paint.Hosts no where to been seen ,even though their house was opposite the cottage!No blinds or curtains at either of the bathroom/toilet windows , which face towards the owners place. Lights were covered in cobwebs.The worst dirtiest place we have been to, def do not recommend this stay , unless you have zero standards in hygiene !
