    “Have already raised the question with you about access and parking at Ascot cottage,your app description of the stairs needs updating immediately ,they are not ' a small set of steps with handrail ' they are 9 high steep steps ,not suitable at all for anyone with mobility problems ,and also ' roadside parking ' there are double yellow lines either side of road stretching at least 100 yards in each direction ,and despite my husband using his blue badge we received two nasty notes and a knock on the door about the car being parked.”

    This made us feel very unwelcome we left the cottage early on the Wednesday as we'd had enough,the cottage itself is very good ,well equipped and comfortable ,the inside steps are winding and steep and care is needed.I feel you need to update this description asap.I would not have booked the cottage if it was clear about the access and parking.

    Sorry to hear you had problems parking, the road does narrow in front of the cottage and some delivery vans would struggle passing a car parked on the yellow lines. But i would just like to put things straight. The yellow lines are about 6o yards in length not 100 yards The cottage is in the middle leaving 30 yards in each direction to walk you can unload and load on the yellow lines, and people can be dropped off if they have difficulty walking the 30 yards to the cottage.
