    “Get away from it all cottage”
    The cottage had everything we needed
    The cottage had everything we needed It was very clean and comfortable Very good location for touring around - as we did Only thing we were disappointed with was the height of the ceilings upstairs My husband is over 6 foot and he could only stand upright in the middle of the bedroom I was fine being 5 foot 6 inches. I think it should state the ceilings are low in the bedroom and bathroom I would come back - but with my daughters not my husband
