    “We had a lovely time, the cottage was very comfortable and pleasant.”

    The key collection was very smooth also. ...

    The key collection was very smooth also. The correspondence between my self and the owner was smooth. The only thing that I can complain about is that the hot water went off and the radiators which meant it was very cold in the bedrooms. After contacting the owner regarding this she switched it back on via the hive as the hot water had been switched off which was disappointing. I found it quite unfair that this was done considering the price we paid. Luckily we had the open fire which was very cosy and warm.
