  • “Fabulous well maintained and well equipped cottage - felt very homely.”

    Fabulous location - walks galore from your doorstep and a pub up the road - and also right near a bus stop. ...

    Fabulous location - walks galore from your doorstep and a pub up the road - and also right near a bus stop. Would definitely return. If you're looking for constructive feedback, the things we would note given the 4 star rating are: 1. Needs a bigger fridge - this is a cottage for 5 people - the fridge wasn't big enough for two of us. 2. Needs a DVD player. 3. Needs more than 3 loo rolls if more than 2 people are staying. 4. Needs a new frying pan. 5. Albeit the thought of a welcome pack was very much appreciated (and unexpected), we're vegan so having dairy milk and non-vegan products left for us wasn't great - just needs more consideration.
