  • “The cottage was lovely warm and cosy.”

    All facilities clean and tidy and in good working order. Especially seeing a lovely welcome pack of homemade lemon drizzle cake, bread, milk butter and doggie treats unexpected but very nice. The use of a tumble dryer would have been useful to dry out wet clothes. Also more lighting around the steps and carpark at night should be considered The upstairs accommodation could do with more sound proofing as the noise when people were in above was annoying especially when the dishwasher was on as ...

    All facilities clean and tidy and in good working order. Especially seeing a lovely welcome pack of homemade lemon drizzle cake, bread, milk butter and doggie treats unexpected but very nice. The use of a tumble dryer would have been useful to dry out wet clothes. Also more lighting around the steps and carpark at night should be considered The upstairs accommodation could do with more sound proofing as the noise when people were in above was annoying especially when the dishwasher was on as it was directly above the lounge area where we sat. The DVD player needs replacing as it kept saying Wrong Region (region 1) so we could not use it. But it is in a great area for walking, exploring and visiting Westons Cider Distillery nearby. And the Old Court Hotel just 10mins away serves great food perfect if you really dont want to cook after all that. But it is somewhere that we would return to.
