    It's a lovely cottage but over the 4yrs we have been it has gone down hill. Although inside is still clean the gardens have been left to run wild. The garden table had gone rusty with one of the legs broken and being held up by a flower pot with a rock inside . The photos that you have for this cottage is so out of date. On our first visit 4yrs ago the bottom stair was broken and it still is. Also my husband had to mend the front door lock. It's such a shame this lovely little cottage really is in need of some TLC. Will not be going back again.
