Although we had a superb holiday we were dissaponted with the cottage. It looks amazing but upkeep is not a priority. It is full of clutter pracrtically every cupboard, even the kitchen , was full,so no space for our stuff and with 6 adults and 2 little one quite difficult.1 cupboard in kitchen empty Even had to empty the bedroom cupboard to put my clothes in . Only 1out of 4 bedrooms had a small hanging space. Rodent poison pots were found by us and not told they were there and with a 21 mth little boy running around was quite disturbing. Everything was old , not quaint old, just old ! Books were everywhere you couldn't put a cup of tea down unless you moved stuff. No hot water in downstairs toilet. Most window catches were broken or non existent. Rugs eveywhere trip hazard big time.On the plus side there was a garden with parking but would rather have had a modernised clean fresh cottage as we have had on previous trips . Also some noises in attic in night , probably the furry friends the dishes were meant for. Apart from that Appledore and Instow and surrounding areas are stunning.

Owner's Response: Appledore Cottages appreciates all constructive criticism from our guests and our priority and aim is to offer a good service and ensure our guests have a enjoyable holiday. We have noted the review. from our guests 20th August 2016, 1. KITCHEN - Myrtles is a large house which caters up to 12 people, therefore we supply a fully equipped kitchen for our guests. There is a large floor to ceiling double pull-out larder cupboard for food as well very large fridge freezer - a stainless steel kitchen table with storage underneath with 2 veg racks. 2. BEDROOMS - Storage Space, the king size bedroom has a large built in wardrobe which has shelving hanging space and a chest of drawers. The other two double bedrooms have large chest of drawers, large antique cupboards with shelf space. It appears that our changeover staff had left laundry bags of clean bedding for the next changeover in one of the large cupboards. We apologise for this. Normally this is stored in the airing cupboard in the family bathroom. 3. RODENT POISON POTS - We have absolutely no idea where these were found or how they came to be in the property as we do not use this in any of our properties. 4. EVERYTHING WAS OLD - Myrtles dates back to the 1700's in parts of the house, and other parts are 1900's. Myrtles is equipped with expensive antique furniture: new televisions, new appliances Unlimited wifi & printer - rustic and modern furniture plus antique handmade carpets. i.e. the sitting room has an antique ziegler carpet valued at several thousand pounds. At the beginning of the season we re-carpeted with new fitting carpets on the large landing and family bathroom as well as painting and decorating. 5. DOWNSTAIRS CLOAKROOM - Unfortunately it only has cold water in the sink, however in the utility room there is a new washing machine and tumble dryer. 6. WINDOW CATCHES - I am aware of some replacement needed in the kitchen, however during the season of July/August it is impossible to attend on a limited time frame of Saturday changeovers for non urgent or dangerous running repairs. 7. WOULD RATHER HAVE HAD A MODERNISED CLEAN FRESH COTTAGE - From the feedback I will endeavour to make sure on all future booking enquiries that we ask potential clients their preference of modern minimalist seaside cottages or large comfortable houses with Antique Furniture and Carpets 8. Note these guests had a limited budget and we reduced the normal rate.
