Thank you for your review. I am sorry you found problems with the house. It does inform you in the visitors book about the parking & that you can use the garage. I had a water leak from the shower in August and as it took a while to present itself, it is taking a long time to dry out. As it was booked out I have not been able to redecorate it or assess the work needed. The oven has a gas safety cut off & may not have been opening properly, being a caterer myself,. I can only apologise.
I have not been on top of things since my daughter's illness and her recent funeral.

We are disappointed that the guest was not happy with her 2 day stay at our property. The cottage is a 400 year old, protected Grade II listed building, retaining most of the original features and it would be rather incongruous to have modern furnishing.
The staircase in question is typical of the period and is fitted with a safety gate. Although the majority of our guests obviously have young children, the staircase has never posed a problem. All bedrooms have their own access.
Regarding the location of the cottage - it is exactly as described on the site. Perhaps, as all over the Forest, during peak hours on a hot August weekend, the traffic may have been more intense.
On reading our visitor book, guests will find it is full of enthusiastic compliments written by both children and adults. I would also like to add that many of our guests are returning clients.
