The lack of towels & having to strip the beds does not reflect the price of the cottage. Also the access path to the forest could do with a bit of maintenance. Other than that it was a very nice holiday. It is the second time we have been.

We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay.
And that you came back to stay again.
We are sorry that you felt towels should be provided, and that you had to strip the beds.
I do all the cleaning and washing for the cottage myself, and I just find that it helps timewise if the beds are already striped when I arrive.
It means I have more time for cleaning.
We are aware that the path up through the woods could do with a bit of maintenance, and it is on our list of 'jobs to do'.
We are constantly 'doing things' to improve and maintain the cottage, such as recently installing a new dishwasher, a new hosepipe outside, a new kitchen table and chairs, and new carpets in 2 of the bedrooms.
Also, we had to have a whole new burner on the AGA over the winter which cost a lot of money, and took sometime to do.
We do welcome all feedback from people who stay, and we will definately work on the path as soon as we can.
We hope that these things did not spoil your stay, and that you will be able to return another time.
