There are many reasons why holiday cottage owners should stay in their own self catering accommodation.

Unless you actually stay somewhere, sleep there, use the oven, turn on the TV, sit on the sofa, load the dishwasher it is impossible to know what it is really like from the guests point of view. 

What works?  What is uncomfortable?  Can you see things differently when sitting down?  Maybe an odd cobweb or two has escaped your view?  Are there cracked plates, chipped glasses, does the diswasher clean properly? Are the pillows comfortable or the duvets warm enough? 

We stay in our holiday cottages for at least two or three mid-week nights about every six to eight weeks, sometimes with friends or family, sometimes on our own and sometimes with our dog.  Each time it's a different experience and each time we find little things that we wouldn't pick up otherwise. 

Some of the jobs that we seem to do everytime we stay include: removing chipped glasses, plates, bowls and mugs, sharpening knives, putting back loose pages into the information folder, removing out of date information leaflets, replacing light bulbs, tidying the spare duvets and pillows, deleting recorded programmes from the Sky box and mending board games boxes.  All these jobs are small, but when you stay somewhere they are the annoying little things that make an impression. 

Unless you stay a night or two in your own holiday cottage, you just won't pick up on all of these things or more.   It is the attention to detail that shows that you really care.  You can only find out exactly what needs attention if you stay in the holiday cottage yourself.
