    Other people had commented that Hawthorne Cottage was an extremely well equipped and a cosy cottage and I was confident that in my selection of the cottage I had made the right choice. However, I was absolutely delighted that the owner had really the incoming occupant in mind by providing everything that you might need and had not necessarily thought to bring with you. The kitchen was well equipped with utensils and general things such as washing up liquid, cling film/foil and dishwasher tablets that you don't need a lot of but really helps that there are some provided. Kitchen towel was another - I am always looking for it at home and welcomed some being on hand. Other nice touches were the torch in the bedroom bedside drawer and spare bulbs - thank you, even though we did not the bulbs. This speaks of an owner who has gone that extra mile and appreciated the needs of the occupant for as long or as little time as they spend in their property.
