The photos and listing information are not an accurate reflection of this cottage , the property lists that there is a dishwasher, there was no dishwasher. The listing stated there was an open fireplace as well as a slow combustion stove for warmth, there was only a slow combustion fire, not an open fire. The exposed brick work in the photo is now painted white along with the wooden mantle peace shown in these photos. The combustion fire place was not cleaned and the ash left behind filled up a bucket. The coffee pod machine didn't work, although we worked out if you held the handle down it did. Obviously broken, a sign advising guests of that would have been helpful. The milk frother is also broken only realising after we attempted to use it. I can only assume the seal is old as the milk pours out of it when turned on. The toaster had crumbs on the top not cleaned from the previous user, whenever that was. There were no plastic bags for the bin, which was very inconvenient. As we didn't realise till the evening. The plastic spatula was burnt on the tip, not something appealing to use in a holiday rental. The fridge was dirty. The shower soap dispenser had a quarter of a bottle of conditioner but no shampoo. The foot towel had stains on it that were of a rusty colour. The kitchen itself is old and worn. We were a family of 4 and only two of us got to have a warm shower, as the hot water ran out.
I booked this property without any recent reviews, knowing this was a risk, but as I had booked it through Stayz, I felt that was my guarantee things would be of a certain standard.
The old cottage itself is gorgeous, the beds were comfortable and quality sheets were provided. The surroundings are gorgeous and the enclosed yard for pets was perfect. There was also plenty of wood on hand for the combustion heater.
Hello Ines, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for the Studio Cottage. We are sorry for any miscommunications on the descriptions on the listing and we will inform the owner on the items listed. We agreed this is a very gorgeous place and its surroundings are equally beautiful. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
The little forest was an amazing location for a family get together. Absolutely beautiful in every way. The cottages were emaculate - the cleaners really care about their job. My children loved playing with the ponies and cried when we left as they didn’t want to leave.
thanks for reviewing Studio Cottage.
Holiday Rental Specialists are so pleased to hear that you and your family enjoyed this beautiful, rural property.
The house keeper does a fantastic job in ensuring this home is to the highest standard at all times and they certainly do have so much pride in what they do!
The ponies are very cute and can add an attachment to the kiddies and we are sad to hear they were sad!!
We hope to welcome you back to this property once again so your children can play with the ponies again!
We really enjoyed our stay. We will be recommending the Studio Cottage in Little Forest. A very homely feel.
