“Worst Holiday Cottage I've Ever Stayed At”
Reviewed 25 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016
person found this review helpful

Upon arriving at the cottage all looks very welcoming but that's as nice as the stay gets.
Myself and my fourteen year old son stayed here for two weeks and by day three I couldn't wait to leave.
Inside it was disgustingly dirty, so much so that I had to go buy a massive bottle of bleach and surface cleaner to scrub all the floors and work surfaces. The cottage had obviously not been cleaned for some time. Dog hairs everywhere including the fridge.

The sofa bed had no bedding whatsoever so I ended up sharing the main bedroom with my son. When seated on the sofa bed it felt like things were crawling on my skin and landing on my face and arms. It drove me crazy.
The Hoover was unusable unless you love the smell of wet dogs within seconds.

The oven in the cooker along with the microwave was covered in grease to the touch and smoked intensely. Only two drinking glasses, two mugs for hot drinks. Limited saucepans and cooking utensils made home cooking extremely hard. So be prepared for takeaways here.

The television only worked when it wanted to. Pillows on bed were like sleeping on bricks.

Honestly I could write an essay on how dreadful this place was to stay at, I was counting the days until we left and if I could have found alternative accommodation we would have.
The cottage should not be available to rent and is not worth half the cost it's rented for.

I have asked trip advisor for compensation and they have said the owner will come back to me....... I guess not!

“Welcoming and relaxing stay at Thornside Cottage, Skegness”
Reviewed 9 March 2016 for a stay in September 2015

I celebrated my 25th birthday with a trip to Skegness for a weekend break with my boyfriend. We ended up staying at Thornside cottage for 2 nights and we both thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The space is warm, inviting and is homely. I love that the bedroom has an ensuite and the lounge and kitchen are open plan, so you can continue talking to your guests while cooking food. I highly rate Thornside and it is a stone throw away from The Wheel Pub in case you want to pop out for a quiet drink. Perfect location and it is extremely relaxing not being woke up by a main busy road!

“Pleasant stay”
Reviewed 10 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015
person found this review helpful

My friend and I stayed here for a few nights in November. The cottage has everything you need (apart from some washing up liquid), but we did find a lack in the overall cleanliness of the cottage. The floors were not clean, there were crumbs in the bread bin and on the worktop and the fridge, sink and wash-basin had not been. Also, the wifi didnt seem to work very well... Apart from this, we had a pleasant stay and an excellent evening meal in the pub. The owners are friendly and welcoming.
