As my 1st line suggests we had an unfortunate stay in Fingles.
We were firstly sent an email telling us we would not be in the barn we had booked.
We ended up staying below the grumpy owner Richards' flat. Where you can here every movement.
I am not sure when people last stayed in this Mill cottage(2 bed 1 bath 1 floor) but we dusted most things down and felt as if the sofas held animals in them as there were no springs in them. We ended up boiling water to fill the bath and had to share baths. Having been told the barn we were meant to be in had 2 ensuites this was a let down but as 30 year olds from the countryside we can manage this kind of issue.
We had nothing but chippy comments from Richard who made us feel very uncomfortable being there and he suggested we needed to keep the place clean.
Well if he had had it cleaned in the 1st place it would have been nice. We left there with the flat in better cleanliness than we found it.
Richard still charged us the barns rate.
We are 2 couples who are well brought up and very understanding of anything and did not complain at the time.
The staff and Richards wife seem very agreeable and I am sorry we did not leave a tip but I was loathed to put this into Richards hands as he overcharged us at the end for a very uncomfortable stay.
He never asked how our stay had been as I presume he knew it was grim.
