  • Mr Bradshaw

    “Maws cottage is a charming property in a lovely location.”

    It is traditional, and rustic, with a couple of things that people need to be aware of: 1 it has very narrow and steep stairs that turn 180 degrees, so there is actually very little to step on 2 door ways are low, expect to have to bend down to get through doors 3 The bed is quite short with a soft mattress, if you’re over 6ft then be careful, and if you’ve a bad back, then might not be suitable. Having said all of that, it was a lovely holiday, thank you
