I am so sorry to hear Bank Top wasn't up to your expectations during your stay.
I can't offer an explanation for the linen, only that we will keep a closer eye on this for future guests.
We did used to offer a welcome pack, but after feedback from multiple guests who said they didn't find it to be a necessity, we stopped putting one in the cottage. I have wondered if we should start doing so again, and after this feedback, we will definitely arrange for a welcome pack for guests to enjoy.
Again, I am so sorry to hear Bank Top Cottage wasn't as expected, we really care about guest feedback and hope to improve upon the areas mentioned.
Everything went super smoothly. The booking was confirmed quickly before directions and access instructions were sent by email. I didn't get to meet the host due to a Friday evening arrival when they … More

We are pleased you enjoyed your week holiday, however we are sorry you felt some negative points regarding the property and your stay.
Just to clarify, you refer to a 'rule book' which is in fact a guide to the property which explains everything you need to know for safety, security, emergencies and details to make your stay comfortable. Most guests really appreciate the guide and commented positively in previous reviews.
The unfortunate situation with the fridge freezer, could not have been replaced in time for your stay, however replaced now. The property does have sufficient refrigeration with two large capacity 60/40 fridge freezers and one medium capacity separate fridge, which has always proved sufficient for all guest parties.
The piano is not banned from use, we actually encourage use of the grand piano, however we do always ask guests to respect the age of 1860 and handle with care due to its delicate nature.
Unfortunately we do need to charge an additional fee for dogs and deep cleaning to ensure the property is free from dog odours and hairs for follow on guests who may have allergies. Our terms do make it clear that dogs are allowed but not allowed on the furnishings or beds and must sleep in their own dog basket in the rear porch.
We are extremely sorry you felt you couldn't relax, we aim to make the property as relaxing as its location and most guests we believe do in fact find the experience very relaxing which previous reviews show.
We thank you for your valued booking and your honesty in your review.
