    “This is our second stay at Mylnbeck, we booked again because its a lovely property in a fantastic location however, this time we were disappointed as it was completely lacking in personal touches.”


    We are frequent travellers and mostly stay in self-catering cottages. I cannot remember the last time we were not left some kind of welcome pack. We've had everything from wine, prosecco, local cheese, biscuits, cake, luxury tea, chocolates to just milk and bread, but never nothing at all! After a long journey, nipping to the loo to find not even a bar of soap, we were a little surprised. The only item left was a cleaning pack with a dishcloth, a sponge, dishwasher tab and a miniature washing-up liquid which lasted 3 days! It was a late check in so I was disappointed to discover no hairdryer was available. It was too late to buy one that evening and meant a drive into the next town the following day! I realise this is a self catering holiday but even 3* properties usually provide the basics, this place was totaly bare! It is a lovely, well equipped house just be prepared to take everything you need (salt, pepper, oil, sugar etc.) as absolutely nothing is provided. Just not what we've been used to when paying just shy of £1000 pounds for a week!
