  • "The cottage itself is just as advertised, in lovely surroundings a bit to far out of the village if you run out of milk or fancy a drink."

    we had a nice two weeks here with just one or two little niggles. A lot of the lights and lamps did not work just needed bulbs I think. My biggest gripe as a 75 year old with arthritis was the taps. The bathroom was lovely but I had difficulty turning taps on and off( 6 years ago this would not have crossed my mind, but the older you get the easier you need things) A safety rail on the large step at the back door would have been nice to use the garden. We would not hesitate to use this cottage again if visiting this beautiful part of the world.
