Reviewed by Cecil 21st September 2019

We were making a relatively short visit to this area to visit relations. The cottage suited us well as it was very convenient as a base for our activities. The weather was poor but that did not bother us and the cottage was warm and comfortable.

Reviewed by Abigail 7th September 2019

The cottage was very well equipped with everything you could require, including dishwasher, washing machine, ironing board and iron. Although decorated nicely there was rather a lot of dust everywhere and as we suffer with hay fever found it was causing some allergies. The cottage was spacious and it was nice to have outside space as well.
