    “The cottage was very comfortable but we were not aware we would have upstairs neighbours who were quite noisy.”

    A Cottage to us is a one storey building.

    A Cottage to us is a one storey building. The cooker and hood was very dirty. The fridge door compartment had not been cleaned out and had dried foodstuffs and there was food left in the freezer compartment. The kitchen was very cold. No vacuum cleaner and no bathroom or kitchen cloths. However we enjoyed our week very much The Boathouse was excellent.
