Owner's reply:
Thanks very much for your review. Could you drop me a line to let me know what specifically wasn't as clean as you would have hoped? We are keen to make sure everything is as clean as possible for each party, so it would be very useful to know what wasn't up to scratch.

Owner's reply:
Thank you for your comments, and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, despite experiencing some un-summery weather during your week! Sorry you found the decor not up to expectations, but I'd like to reassure you that we do regularly have the cottage redecorated. Last winter we had 2 downstairs rooms repainted, all new carpets downstairs, as well as 2 new sofas. Later this Autumn/Winter we will be re-carpeting and repainting the upstairs.
