We rented two cottages (birch), overall appearance of grounds were rundown, very friendly when checking in and given a list of rules, you are charged a hefty fee if rules are broken. Also informed that the toilets back up very easily and may become plugged. We proceeded to our cottages, upon entering there was a terrible smell (could almost taste it). 1 cottage had flush leaking onto bathroom floor (puddles of water), this one had the worst smell of the two cottages, dead house flies on floor and cot. The second cottage also stunk, dead flies also, hair on the dishes in the cupboard, chip crumbs in the bedding. The issues were brought to the attention of staff and they investigated the situation. My wife asked if the cottages were cleaned prior to our arrival and the staff member working stated she had personally cleaned it herself. We were told they would give us air fresheners because they thought the smell was acceptable and re clean the rooms. There were 3 channels on the tv and very weak wifi signal. Due to the disgusting conditions upon arrival we decided to ask for our deposit back, informed our deposit would not to be returned under any circumstances just because the cottages were not up to our standards. There is a lot better places to stay in Cavendish then here. Do Not Waste Your Time and Money!
