“The house was very comfortable but the dirty windows inside (fingermarks) and outside did spoil the marvellous views from the house. This is the second year running they could have been cleaner. Also the morning we were leaving two gentlemen in vehicles parked in the drive before 10.00am. One vehicle was a large old army truck, the other a large van. They said they were staying at the house. They completely blocked the drive and started walking around the garden. It was a little disturbing. We had to ask them to move their vehicles but they were still parked so we could not get out. We had to ask them again to move so we could leave. It was not a very pleasant encounter.”

Coast & Country Cottages' reply:

Many thanks for your feedback and my apologies for not having responded sooner.
We did pass on your comments to the housekeeper at that time and a more regular regime for window cleaning has been introduced I understand.
Clearly we were very sorry to read that the guests following in after you arrived so early and disturbed the morning of your departure. As you know we make it very clear that new arrivals should not be before 3.00pm to allow time for guests to depart and the property to be effectively cleaned and presented.
If you would like to discuss any of these matters further please do not hesitate to contact me directly.
