The Hot Tub



    Nice stay few little faults

    We were a party of 6 adults and 1 toddler. We had a really nice stay at Anvil cottage and would be happy to return as long as some of the issues we encountered were addressed. Starting outside in the garden (1) the decking in the hot tub area needs attention, it needs screwing down properly, sanding and repainting (my 2 year old granddaughter got spelks in her feet) (2) there weren’t enough chairs to sit on outside, luckily we took some of our own as we had planned a trip to the beach (3) you need to get rid of the ‘picnic table’ as it is very unsteady and not fit for purpose! Next issue is the en suite bedroom (1) it has no wardrobe so nowhere to hang clothes and the drawers need updating (2) the wet room drain needs attention as anytime we had a shower the whole floor flooded and the water took ages to drain away! It’s needs to just be a shower room and not a wet room! (3) the light fitting and toilet roll holder was rusty and needs replacing (all the toilet roll holders in the house were rusty). Next the bathroom, the plug in the sink wouldn’t stay in so the men couldn’t fill the sink up to have a shave and also the bath plug was rusty. The tv in the games room doesn’t work so don’t know why it’s there, I saw a previous review where someone mentioned this and thought it would have been addressed but sadly not! 4 out of 5 of the light bulbs in one of the lights in the lounge were not working, cooker hob light didn’t work, need more cooking utensils, wooden spoons, tongs, bbq equipment etc. Tie backs need sorting in the bedrooms as they don’t stay on and there was some paint peeling in the dining area. I know this sounds a lot of negativity however these are all minor things that wouldn’t take much rectifying and then we would have given it a 5 star rating but sadly at the moment it isn’t. However these things didn’t spoil our stay and we had a lovely relaxing week, the village is very quiet and there is a nice little park, basketball pitch and football field a couple of minutes walk away which we all enjoyed. Northallerton and Saltburn by the sea are not far and are a nice day out, it would be handy if there was a takeaway or fish and chip shop nearby but there was no information about these and we couldn’t find any. Overall we had a lovely stay.
