Attractive building(s) and location BUT damp and cold in January

  • 1 of 5

My husband and I arrived on a sunny afternoon. We approved the architecture of the house and its picturesque gorge setting.

Only after closing the doors and windows did we notice a strong damp smell and a dehumidifier in the kitchen area of the main living space with hose to the sink. This machine (of whose purpose we had been uncertain) had been in operation when we arrived. On further investigation, rooms at either end of the main living space reeked of damp and bed linen felt moist. We turned on heaters and folded back duvets in an attempt to air the beds and linen. Within a few hours, my (usually well-controlled) asthma was triggered, it seems likely, by the mould spores in the atmosphere -- there were small areas of black mould on some of the walls despite these having apparently been recently painted.

Although we had booked the property for a week, we moved out after 2 nights because of concerns about my health. The property manager who had been genial, refused to acknowledge any problems with damp in the buildings, which are of stone construction with some walls adjoining the base of a steep hillside.

The log fire in the living space heated that part of the building adequately, but the bedrooms felt very cold despite the electric heaters provided and sunny warm days because of the aspect and structure of the property.

The owner/manager could make it clearer in the property description that Sea Breeze 'country house' is actually a large, (albeit well-equipped and tastefully appointed) living/dining/cooking space with 3 SEPARATE en suite bedrooms, each of which needs to be opened with a key. This might make it best suited to 2 or 3 couples or, perhaps, families with teenage children. Even then, the need to carry a key at all times could be inconvenient.

Instructions need to be provided. We had a power cut at night and were only able to locate the trip switch (in the garage under the property) the following morning.

The property did not meet our needs. With the above caveats, it might suit others.
