Great property in a perfect location. Good sized bedroom with nice wet room showers. Dishwasher broke but was immediately fixed so thank you. Only gripes were: (1) on arrival crockery in the orangery room was dirty and (2) the property is advertised with seasoned Kiln Dried logs for the hot tub. As a tree surgeon they were not kiln dried as they haRead mored only just been cut so it was a nightmare trying to stoke up the small boiler for the hot tub. Hide

Stunning house, decorated to a very high standard and very well equipped. In particular the beds are extremely comfortable, bathrooms large and impressive and ample storage space.

Lovely location. Owners very friendly and immediately responded to any questions/requests. Lovely decoration, bathrooms, showers etc all very good and working well.

Otherwise we did have a lovely holiday and would go back if these small things were [email protected]@Hi Eileen,Thank you for taking the time to complete a review.I do agree the cottage is in a lovely location and Amanda the owner of Willow House is very friendly. I have now spoken to the owner regarding the points you have mentioned and she is very sorry that you had to clean the filters on arrival, the owner will be speaking with her cleaners to ensure this does not happen again. As the hot tub is a wood burning hot tub, this does take a little longer to warm up and I am sorry you had difficulty with this. There used to be a portable speaker at the house and it looks like unfortunately another guest may have accidentally taken this home with them and the owner will take a look at purchasing some more. Regarding the cold bedroom the owner can also presume that the previous guest had turned the radiator off. There is a radiator in the back dining room and also a blower heater which usually does keep this room warm. I am delighted that you had a lovely holiday and we would love to welcome you back to Yorkshire again very soon!Take careLouise Hide

Mandy is very thankful for the feedback and sends her apologies. A full review will be conducted and she will speak to the housekeeper to ensure this doesnt happen again. It came as a shock to Gorgeous Cottages too as we havent had a complaint re cleanliness for any of Mandys properties.
