Firstly we want to say we were so very sorry you did not enjoy your stay at Walnut Cottage I did meet you at your car I asked had you all had your vaccinations and you told me no so I knew then we had to follow government guidelines as we were both double jabbed. We did not constantly monitor you as you very seldom left the cottage, we do say if heating is required you only have to ask that is stated on our web page, there is a fire extinguisher above the sink. You say we should question ourselves as our French is not good and that I do agree but to advise French people not to come here and we should return to the other side of the channel made us very sad We do hope your visit to the Creuse will not stop you visiting the area again We wish you all good things.

We were so sorry to be told you did not feel comfortable had we were able to chat to you Im sure you wouldnt have felt that way however you seldom left the cottage I dont think the weather helped to mention a few things that you have commented on I would like to reply we do hold our hands ups to the settee as soon as our guests leave on Saturday it is going to be replaced. The dinning table has placemats for 4 people not 2 as you said, an unusable bowl that is a normal white plastic bowl and it was spotless , I understand you had an emergency and had to leave however we had no idea you were leaving and we were in the house until 10.30 of which time you could have told us anyway that is not important I did confirm that i had torn your damage deposit cheque up so there were no issue it took longer than normal as with coronavirus we are advise not to enter the cottgae straight away All in all we are so sorry your stay didnt live up to all you hoped for and we hope the rest of the summer is kind to you
