Responded quickly to queries. The garden was very secure so our dog could roam around. Overall we enjoyed our stay, but a few minor details could have improved it, Updated TV, would be an advantage. A vacuum cleaner would be great......I know people don’t want to spend their holiday cleaning but I felt I personally would have liked to be able to vacuum , to remove dog hairs daily and to leave the property sparkling when we left (ecactly how we found it). A cheese grater would also be handy. But overall a great cottage and very welcoming owners.
