    “Cittage was clean and comfortable.”

    Only thing i can complain about is that the toilet seat was a bit wobbly.

    Only thing i can complain about is that the toilet seat was a bit wobbly. The kitchen was well equipped, though there was no potato masher! There were plenty of plates and pans. I am not used to a gas oven so everything took longer to cook than anticipated, but we were on holiday so it didn't matter that much!!
