    I booked this cottage for myself, my girlfriend and my dog to self isolate in during the COVID pandemic. We actually had to change our booking because of travel and the owner was very communicative and accommodating. The cottage is beautiful, it's set in it's own ground, fenced and gated, with a large lawn which easily accommodates playing with my labrador. It is set on a footpath which makes a quick walk of the dog very easy. The nearest other building is about a 1/4 mile away, but it's only 15 mins to drive to the supermarket so you're secluded but not cut off. The cottage has essentially no sound proofing and you can hear the birds all day and night, which is either something you love or dislike. There is a road right next to the cottage but it is rarely traveled and the occasional car going past is a nice thing to notice rather than an annoyance. The kitchen, though small, is very well appointed, we were able to cook pretty much everything we could want. There was some oil/salt/flour etc left in the kitchen cupboards, I assume by previous guests but it's a great help. Washing machine and washing line. Good sofa in the living room, good dining table and chairs, bathroom is downstairs, small like the kitchen but fine. It has a bath and a shower, plenty of hot water. Plug sockets everywhere. Good wifi. Lovely wood fire with fuel. The master bedroom is beautiful, high ceiling with exposed beams. Large bed which didn't give me back ache. Plenty of furniture to store things. The second bedroom had 2 single beds in it. It was very small and a bit of a maze to navigate in and out of. Fine for kids and for us as just a spare space. A few things to prepare for -The staircase is steep and narrow -Fair amount of flies -Bring some blankets, it's not cold but there aren't any -Downstairs is beautiful stone flags and tile which are cold, bring slippers -Small/few windows so fairly dark inside (it is an old cottage) -Sound travels easily in the house, doors are very loud to open and close. I'd say that it is a perfect retreat for a young couple, but it would not be so hot for a family that includes a young couple. If you get what I mean. If you catch my drift. Everyone will hear you. We came here to self isolate so I can't say anything about what is around. But as a peaceful secluded retreat for a couple it is excellent. I would come again and recommend.
