    “Hill Cottage is charming, very peaceful, comfortable and well equipped.”

    It would be a lovely place to stay in any season, and I enjoyed my stay as much as in any cottage I’ve rented. The front garden is very nicely accessible, and has lovely views, though these are sadly and swiftly being compromised by a large holly tree which would benefit from being heavily topped next winter (when it is dormant) to open the view once more. The garden also could do with someone spending a couple of hours removing the occasional bramble stem and a few nettles, which are pushing ...

    It would be a lovely place to stay in any season, and I enjoyed my stay as much as in any cottage I’ve rented. The front garden is very nicely accessible, and has lovely views, though these are sadly and swiftly being compromised by a large holly tree which would benefit from being heavily topped next winter (when it is dormant) to open the view once more. The garden also could do with someone spending a couple of hours removing the occasional bramble stem and a few nettles, which are pushing through and are beginning to give the shrubs and glorious clumps of day lilies a slightly unkempt appearance. There was just one quite important practical point which I would suggest should be added into the ‘write-up’ about Hill Cottage...it didn’t affect me because I am fit and agile, but to access the cottage from where visitors must park their car involves a climb up approximately twenty steps, which could be completely impossible for some elderly or infirm people. I don’t think I saw any mention of it in the details of this aptly named cottage.
