Thank you for your kind words. We are so pleased that you and your family had a good time. You mentioned during your stay about how light the rooms are and how that may affect children sleeping- thank you for the feedback, which is always welcome. It is a south facing cottage, which is good in one way, but we understand the point completely. We have curtains and blinds already as you know, but they are light in colour to keep the cottage cheerful, so we have fitted black out linings to the curtains and we have ordered a black out blind in a dark colour for the large rooflight in the loft bedroom. Hopefully, that means it will be bright and cheerful during the day, but dark when you want it to be too. Many thanks again for your constructive feedback- much appreciated.

This complaint is really unfortunate in that on this occasion we used a different cleaner to the usual contract one’s due to us being away and it being too complicated to brief them properly and organise access. I’m afraid that the cleaner on this occasion was obviously not up to it and we will insure that this never happens again.
In normal circumstances the barn is always cleaned to a very high standard and we also go round double checking everything after they leave.
With regard to the television the plan is to replace this for a nice flat screen model any day now.
I do not understand the comment about the furniture being tired as many of these are antiques and would really be spoilt if we replaced them with modern pieces. The barn was redecorated last season but the problem is on the stairways that receive hard traffic when guests move baggage around and need touching up again which will be seen to. Most of the walls are in fact stone and cannot be decorated.
On the tea and coffee cup situation there are at least 12 cups of a nice china variety. We will however add to this collection some more basic coffee mugs to be kept on a spindle at surface top level.
On the baths these are slipper for one gallery bedroom and we have a large cast iron one in the main en suite bathroom and these are not designed to have shower curtains, but instead to hand hold the shower handle piece in a more traditional way.
There is some hanging space and plenty of hangers, but due to the roof lines there is not room for large wardrobes. Instead there are two large chest of drawers in each bedroom. The master bedroom has its own wardrobe. The guest bedroom a smaller one.
On the state of the drive, all the potholes have now been filled, which as you can imagine were caused by the recent severe weather conditions.
It is unfortunate that we were unable to talk to the tenants when we returned from abroad, though we tried to have a chat as they were driving past one day to see if everything was all right.
It is not correct that the barn costs over £1,600. The only reason for the high season prices is that we have to keep in tandem with our main agent www.cotages4you . Usually we offer very good last minute deals from £70 per night if you take a week.
The Barn offers twice the square footage of other locations in the area being approximately 1,500 square foot.
