    “The Sarn was a really lovely, definitely quirky, cottage.”

    Only 3 rooms upstairs (very steep risers on the stairs and low headroom on entering them) but many rooms downstairs. Took us a while to find our way around! Great fun! A couple of negatives - The hob was induction heat and having never used one before, I couldn't get the hang of it at all! No instructions for it either (there was for everything else!). Thank goodness there was a microwave! Also, I didn't like the fact that many of the windows were sealed on the interior with a ...

    Only 3 rooms upstairs (very steep risers on the stairs and low headroom on entering them) but many rooms downstairs. Took us a while to find our way around! Great fun! A couple of negatives - The hob was induction heat and having never used one before, I couldn't get the hang of it at all! No instructions for it either (there was for everything else!). Thank goodness there was a microwave! Also, I didn't like the fact that many of the windows were sealed on the interior with a perspex-type double glazing. Made us feel a little claustrophobic and no way of getting out if trapped in a room and there was a fire. Shudder. Apart from those negatives, the owner Alastair was charming and helpful and The Sarn itself is set in the most beautiful countryside with lots of lovely properties and winding country lanes. Great pubs within a couple or three miles, all of the food on offer sourced locally.
