Nicola Round, on 2024-04-15

We were worried by recent reviews but they had been acted on and the state of the cabin is improved. It was cleaner (a little residual mould along the bottom of the back wall, none elsewhere), very comfortable and the door now locks from the inside. We cleared the initial musty smell by opening the windows. The wi-fi worked for the first day, but not thereafter. As we didn’t need it, we did not contact the hosts to have it sorted out. The cabin fulfilled our requirements perfectly and we would happily stay there again, it was really good value. Next time we’ll take earplugs in case our booking overlaps with an event again. Thank you for your helpful responses before our arrival, it was a very pleasant stay.
