The plug mechanism bath did not work - it had to be pulled up manually, which was a problem for 93 year old arthritic fingers (and my nails) and Luckily we always carry a universal plug in our wash bag but I had to go and by another from the local hardware store as the bathroom hand basin plug did not fit properly and the water kept draining away Apart from those relatively minor inconveniences, we were very happy with the cottage and Theresa was very helpful on our arrival and in sorting out access to the off road parking - perhaps a sign could be made for the gates to prevent others parking across the entrance? We definitely intend to book Burke Cottage again
