Nice Quiet Location
Overall we were happy with Orchard Cottage. One thing that I was not happy with was the spider webs. I completely understand that this is a very old property and there are going to be spiders and webs but they were everywhere and it didn’t look like there was any effort to get rid of them before we got there. As soon as you get to a vacation rental the last thing you want to do is start cleaning spider webs. Other then that we had a wonderful stay. It was great being so close to Broadway.
Thank you for your review and we can only apologise that you found cobwebs. Unfortunately this is a very old house and they are impossible to get rid of completely and on this occasion the house was prepared the day before your arrival and the spiders that hid made their appearance. Duly noted and we will double check the cottage on the day of arrival.
