Glenalbyn cottage is a lovely well appointed cottage but needs a bit of TLC to bring it back up to full spec. At first sight it appeared to be excellent but we soon discovered it was in need of a really good deep clean. We had two young children with us and when toys went under furniture it was clear that these areas and many other nooks and crannies had not been touched for a long time. The upstairs bedroom doors did not have any working latches and would not stay closed. There was a very strong smell of heating fuel in the utility room where the boiler was, even with the window wide open. The kitchen was well equipped but there was no sign of the coffee machine and the table knives were sharper than the 'sharp' knives in the knife block. The garden was quite overgrown and not very secure. Our 6 year old had no trouble getting through the fence and it would have easy for our dog to escape if he wasn't so well behaved.
