Owner's reply:
Hello, We are of course very disappointed to read this review and have thought carefully about how to respond to this. We understand that in this current global pandemic anxiety is very high. We have this in mind with the Trowley and have installed a hand sanitizing station in the house, and have cleaned to a high standard. Trying to put myself in your situation it was perhaps the wrong timing and sort of holiday for your party. The Trowley is a quirky Welsh Farmhouse. They used to salt the pig in the kitchen and so one of the walls has salt coming through it, which you took exception to. To say there was a cockroach I am afraid is just untrue; in the summer in the countryside with the windows open there are insects, which was what you sent me a photo of. The showers have all been replaced within the last 6 months. The morning that you left we had the previous guests come to say goodbye to us saying they had the best holiday ever, and then by 10pm that night we were answering texts about a screw that had been found on a bedroom floor. We were so sad to see you and your family leave, but we offered to put anything right that you were not happy about, and there was unfortunately not much more we could do.
