After apologising profusely to the guests the housekeeper has been dismissed as the cleaning clearly wasn't up to the level expected.
The house has had a deep clean less than 2 months ago and all windows, carpets and lampshades were deep cleaned at this time. It was a shame the plumber had not been able to fix the tap whilst the guests were there but there have been no reports previously about the sealant on the bath so that will now be checked too. I agree that the towels do need replacing and in fact we will be suggesting guests bring their own as most people prefer to do this anyway. A very disappointing review but hopefully with the new housekeeper in place things will be 100% better from now on. Once again we apologise to the guests involved.

Thanks for your review of West Lane Cottage. The Thimble Inn has a new landlord (chef) and landlady with effect from late March 2012 and we visited for Sunday lunch on April 1st. A small menu but we tasted a good range between us and all was obviously fresh, home made and delicious. The chef told us that the only thing that had come out of the freezer was our ice and that all that could be home made, would be, and the menu certainly reflects this with homemade bread and brioche, and home cured salmon evident on the Sunday lunch menu. There was also a good smattering of locals in who proclaimed the new residents most welcome and friendly and we agree!
Rectory Road is a small road at right angles to the B314, the High Street running through the village. We do get some farm traffic (especially at harvest time) and some commuters. There is a 30 mph speed restriction, the cottage is double glazed throughout and very few people comment on the traffic. However, if holidaymakers feel that a peaceful lie in is particularly important to them, we would suggest our sister cottage Wren Cottage, Tolpuddle which is beautifully quiet and also offers a countryside view from the bedrooms!
