    "Clean basic accommodation in quiet town centre location."

    "microwave, shower,another easy chair and some hooks to hang coats on would be nice."

    "Overall Simkin is a lovely cottage in a great location. It is at the 'basic' end of the scale, however, it clearly states in the description what is and isn't included and so people should not be surprised to find no freezer or microwave. Also, the price is reflective of this when compared to other cottages/bungalows in the local area.The beds were comfortable and it was a pleasant discovery to find the furniture and TV had been updated from the pictures on the website.The area is fantastic as whilst you are only a couple of minutes from the supermarket and 5 minutes walk from town you do feel very secluded.Things to remember: Towels, Bedding, Bin BagsImprovement Areas: The 1 massive area of improvement would be to add a shower over the bath. WiFi would be nice but not essential for a weeks holiday."

    "No freezer or ice box to put our ice blocks.We could not use the bath it was discusting.The garden needed a good tidy up.The pillows were all stained.The settee was really unfortable.The whole place needs updating.The location was excellent the cottage was nice and clean we wouldn’t recommed it sorry."

    "We have stayed here a number of times . I have very limited mobility and the best thing is no stairs and locality. On the down side it could do with a bit of 21st centaury items such as microwave, ice box in freezer, Wi-Fi and a proper shower not just an old fashioned shampoo spray. I can not get in the bath so for a week I could only have wash downs , on the hottest week of the year when all I wanted to do was stand under a shower."
    Susan ‐ 27 May 2018
    "It would be far better if there was a shower,double glazing, microwave and the Beech Tree could do with prunning."
    Claire ‐ 9 Mar 2018
    "Everything in walking distance, dog friendly pubs and lots of places to visit and go walking."
    Anne ‐ 8 Mar 2018
    "Great location, nice size bungalow and garden, needs a shower and some comfortable furniture."
    Jan ‐ 13 Jan 2018
    "We loved the town and location but the bungalow was very tired and needed alot of TLC. Definitely needs a shower installing, more kitchen equipment and the hall carpet replacing. It wouldn't take much to cheer it up and if the above is addressed we would happily come again!"
