should have looked at reviews before booking
If you have booked this cottage for 2022 and paid over £1000 cancel it and go else where. I contacted the company I booked with as I looked at reviews after I had booked and heard nothing very going and it was not clean - they were right. Company assured me the owner took complaints very seriously - NO I asked for a stair gate as being firework weekend my dog is very frightened of them and I did not want her running upstairs to hide - no stair gate so put a chair in front of the stairs It states cottage is for 6, there are only 4 dining chairs and 2 in kitchen - does some of the group have to eat in the kitchen, not suitable for 6. It said there was a dehumidifier as cottage damp, and nothing evident to say there is one. Cottage was not clean and I have sent photos to the letting company and waiting to hear back but am not very hopeful as they said they would get back to me after I contacted them about other reviews and I heard nothing. Lets hope the right of the week goes well.

Disappointed with this cottage
Very disappointed with this cottage. It was very unclean and was much smaller than it looked in the pictures. Although the sofas quite comfortable they smelt strongly of dog. The garden furniture very uncomfortable and dirty so unable to sit in the garden. Limited utensils in the kitchen and one of the beds had not been made so we had to ring to ask for extra bedding. It was also difficult to find parking near the cottage. Location for Porthlevin very good as only a short walk to the harbour but on a steep hill so wouldn't be suitable for everyone.
