  • "Very nice and comfortable"

  • "Lovely lovely landlord, made us feel so welcome."

    The cottage was very cosy and warm. The only downside was the sofa was very uncomfortable, but we just put some throws over it. Would defiantly stay again.

  • "Accommodation was warm however that is about all I can say about it."

    Owner says it sleeps 2/4 people so we assumed we could have the bed and kids could sleep on the sofa bed, that didn't happen! My partner and both children slept in the bed and I tried to sleep on the cobbled street they said was a sofa bed. We ended up leaving a day early because 3 nights with no sleep was about enough for me. I did bring it up with the owner and was told no-one had complained before which isn't true. When we returned home I checked the reviews and someone else had mentioned it before which, in fairness had seen but the review had been commented on by the owner saying all issues had been resolved NOT TRUE. Access to the the garden was through a door with a padlock on and unless I asked we wouldn't have been told by the owner, it felt like they don't actually want you to use it but put it on their advert to make it sound like your getting more than you do. After not sleeping on the last night I took our dog for a walk at 5am and when I returned the door was locked and I couldn't access the Accommodation because you share the entrance with the owner which isn't pointed out on booking. After all is said the area is beautiful and well worth a visit, just find some other accommodation. Wouldn't stay again and definitely wouldn't recommend.

  • "The "cottage" was not as it was advertised, it was Listed as a one bed cottage, not a flat inside someone's home, if we had known this we would not have rented it."

    Living effectively with someone if not the experience we wanted due to the awkward feeling of always knowing they where there. The garden was very pretty, but you had to go through a shed full of rubbish to get there and you are made aware on arrival that the owners dog does not like other dogs so are always on edge that it may be there. The games room was non existent, the room had a lot of the owners rubbish from the owners and generally was not a pleasent place to be. The owners are nice people and personally I put the majority of the problems down to you (the advertiser) but even so I think some serious changes need to be made to be taking that sort of money from people.

    The sofa was very uncomfortable and neither myself or my wife were able to sit on it for very long.
