5/5 Excellent

Short Notice Staycation
A lovely cosy cottage that offered a lovely restful long weekend. The cottage was well stocked with everything that you needed. During these strange times we felt safe all the time and the owners were at the end of a phone if we needed anything. The cottage was well placed to visit the Scottish and English borders.

2/5 Poor

Morebattle lovely, Benfield Cottage not quite what we'd hoped - some misrepresentation.
The cottage is well situated in the village and 'adequately' equipped, but parts of the environment could do with an overhaul. E.g. cleanliness was not 100% e.g. knife block grubby, cups or glasses stick to the mats and paper hanky (or whatever... as we didn't explore) lying on floor behind bedhead; the bedroom wardrobe contains a full black bag inhibiting the use of same; only 2 bath towels (one of which was not clean) + 1 hand towel laid out (.. but we found others in a cupboard) & some photos misrepresent - the garden seats were not the pretty metal ones in the photos but plastic (not in itself a problem) but they were covered in grit and had clearly not been wiped this season; the kitchen bins are plastic (not a metal one as in photo) and they state 'push' but mechanism is the opposite and lids need to be lifted. Seating is a little outdated and the feature wall fire makes a lot of noise when switched on. Wi-fi info is insufficient as options are many and whilst the password is provided there is no mention as to which specific account to choose. When opening the downstairs front window there were substantial cobwebs containing dead flies etc.,... the accumulation of many months. It was interesting that the visitor's book contained positive comments, although we cannot believe we are alone in finding this cottage a little 'tired' and in need of a wee bit of attention and upgrading. This is potentially a pleasant little cottage, but sadly evidences some degree of neglect. We hope that our findings for Benfield Cottage will receive some attention.
