    Just returned from a lovely break at Kirby house, a great location very central to the town and very clean.However there are one or two things that should be pointed out, Firstly, while not an issue for ourselves the access is very steep and can be very slippy so if your elderly or infirm in anyway i would not recommend this cottage. Secondly, the parking is a nightmare and can prove problematic ( even in January ) so it would be worse in the summer months. Thirdly, we have stayed in numerous cottages and a simple welcome pack is always a very nice touch, some tea bags, milk and even a packet of biscuits is always appreciated after a long journey. Lastly while the cottage is in a fantastic state of repair and very clean the sofa is in need of replacement as you now feel as your sitting on the floor !!!! Barry Pearson
