  • "Whilst the cottage was adequate there were areas that would benefit from a little more attention."

    There was no Sky Sport. I was looking forward to following the Oval Test match only to be told that Sport was not available. The microwave was situated to high for my liking. I am a little on the short side and was concerned when reaching in to retrieve hot food that it might spill. I overcome this problem, in the short term, by standing on a chair. A box or steps would be useful. Apart from the above a comfortable stay.
