    “Beautiful cottage with amazing views.”

    We very much enjoyed using the hot tub and playing the piano (although this could do with some TLC). Very spacious, especially in the bedrooms and bathrooms. A little tired elsewhere in places, particularly in the sitting room, which was disappointing given the cost of the cottage. The equipment provided in the kitchen was limited for a party of 8, especially in terms of crockery and lighting in the living areas was poor. When a shower broke, a handyman arrived very quickly and dealt with this ...
