Yes I know people like dishwashers, but there simply isn't anywhere in the kitchen that I could out one! Both the washing machine and tumble drier are housed in utility room....but it'd be impractical to put a dishwasher in there, too far from kitchen! I'm open to suggestions? As regards to a BBQ, I previously had nowhere to keep it, but I'm in the process of having a garden shed built where I will be able to safely store it. In the past I've supplied disposable ones to guests on request, and would have in this instance had I known it was wanted. Thanks for feedback, it helps me improve my business.

We had a good time in Formby and the surrounding areas, and it is an area that we would like to visit again.The house is okay, but could be a lot better.Although the routine change-over clean was done… More

Red Squirrel Cottage is a Victorian period house and as such I have to be very careful with redecoration. It takes professionals and it is not something that can be done in a couple of free days, and it was difficult allocating enough time when I had guests desparate to book. The fridge worked perfectly well but the light in it was a bit hit and miss, so as I could not get it fixed a new fridge was installed last year. Recarpeting and redecoration was done at the beginning of this year.
I do not provide sachets of condiments...these were obviously left by the previous guests and were overlooked by the cleaner who was also responsible for checking that bedside lamps are working correctly. She is now fully aware. Had this guest simply informed me I would have had it rectified the same day.
I speak to all my guests and fully explain key collection etc and provide a full guest information at the property.
As I want all my guests to be comfortable and to love Red Squirrel Cottage as I do, I offered this guest a complimentary stay so that he could evaluate the improvements (which needed a 3 week slot involving replacing Victorian coving)but he has never responded...this was October 2012.

Red Squirrel Cottage is a beautiful home and my visitor guest book is crammed with glowing positive reports of wonderful holidays and memories made!
