    Downstairs was comfortable and modern. Upstairs not, stairs and upper floor carpet old dirty needs replacing Bathroom well, just not good enough, old dated fixtures shower very low water rate, bath tub old and tired, mildew and bad caulking. Hot water tank the size of a thimble, water ran cold every day after 5 mins, so either myself or my wife was taking a cold shower:( Sorry to be critical but what can I say them's the facts. Cheers Michael

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; The cottage is well looked after and maintained and our previous reviews are scored highly. As these guests were from Canada, they were probably not aware of the restrictions imposed on a listed Cornish cottage. The bathroom suite is enamel set, in good condition and an appropriate design for the cottage. We are restricted in the size of the hot water storage tank due to the nature of the building; however the immersion heater time clock can easily be overridden to leave the water heating on for a longer period before using the shower/bath to overcome any restriction. The corking around the bath and basin is in good condition, with most replaced last year. The stairs and bedroom carpets are not old and they are due for a refreshing clean at the beginning of March. There are further works to be carried out during the first week in March which include installing an electric shower over the bath to provide a more powerful water stream, replacing the bath and basin taps and re-decorating as required.
