An unloved cottage
We stayed at "Old Walls" over many years for family holidays when I was a teenager. This visit was a surprise to take mother down "memory lane". How very sad that "family-Watts" do not love their cottage and that 'Sykes-Cottages' struggles to look after it, on their behalf. The cleaner has ca. 5 hours between lettings but doesn't seem take advantage of this. Presumably, anything not visible is not checked eg: - a stained dirty crack running the length of the teapot makes "brewing up" a dangerous task; - opening the drawer by the front door revealed a sticky mess and old ketchup packets; - the dishwasher, when opened, came away from the wall and success of a washing cycle appears arbitrary; - THREE dishwasher tablets were meticulously counted out but basics found in most holiday cottages: salt, pepper, sugar, tea and coffee were nowhere to be found; The upstairs, front window leaks and, even when locked, blew open in the night during a storm. A patch of damp growing next to the bed downstairs might need attention and the stains on the bedroom carpets could happily be covered with rugs. We enjoyed Salcombe and the coastal walks and thank you for allowing our dog.
