To start off we were unable for a week to contact owners for keycode and bed setup , sent emails and left answer phone messages. We had to ask Sykes to get info. Great location and perfect after lockdown. After reading previous feedback we were looking forward to our stay. But......................... Big notice leave as you found plus clean oven and fire. The cottage/barn was large and airy. Woodburner no tools to be able to use and clean it out (had to bring our logs back home.(we emailed owner while there no reply). The bathroom was awefull everywhere around shower was thick mould, took me ages to clean it, in bedroom mould all over walls by window , including windows and curtains.(we emailed owner while there no reply) Not good if you have a lung condition. The oven was ?????? we did not want to use it, this is dispite owner asking guest to clean on departure. We altered our menu to try not to use. The heating was superb. The hot tub is a great bonus but take care when getting out as you are up against windows (glass) Went to use laundry washing machine needed a good clean due to mould, no washing line dispite a peg basket, not all clothes are suitable to put in tumble drier.(we emailed owner while there no reply) It was obvious from the rusty state of some radiator tops where the washing was dryed.
