Dear Andrea, I am so sorry the heating was not on for your arrival . It is a very efficient system and it normally only takes 10 mins to heat up . I can see you had a last minute booking and we offered you a discount , you paid £565.00 for your weeks accommodation. The builders have finished next door now and so parking should not be a problem for future guests. I am so sorry they had parked in front of the cottage and this was a problem for you kind regards Gillian
