    “Good but needs improvement ”

    Th location was amazing, wildlife around was fantastic and the grounds were great in therms of size. The main house plus cottage are up for sale, which seems to have led to perhaps less attention to detail in the cleanliness of house. We had to thoroughly hoover when we arrived and cleaning the main window ledge in the lounge. This was a shame as honestly it was a bit off putting. The general feeling of the house being bit unloved continued throughout the grounds and would be the main thing that would put us off returning. It would be an idea to put some sort of door on the garage and perhaps get a new freezer, it gave the impression of being an afterthought. Overall with a bit of TLC is would be amazing

    Thank you for raising the concerns you had whilst staying at Red Kite Cottage.The cottage was cleaned on Saturday 25th August as it was a changeover day and so the problems you encountered are a mystery but will be investigated thoroughly.The lawns are mown on a weekly basis but there are areas outside the Cottage garden curtilage that are left unmanicured for the local wildlife.The lawns have,however, suffered from the hot weather during the summer months and may not have looked as verdant as usual.As the kitchen cannot accommodate the Freezer it is in the carport area which due to it's partial exposure to the elements does suffer from the external cabinet being affected.The area is not enclosed as it provides a drying area for washing, wet clothing, muddy boots and wellingtons,bike storage as well as an area for those of our guest who smoke.We were present at the property and had you notified us we would have attended to your concerns immediately.We apologise for any discomfort that you may have encountered but we strive to reach and maintain high standards at all times regardless of the situation.
