    “We did have a problem in that the kitchen had no hot water.”

    We rang the numbers supplied and they talked us through it, seemed to be ok for 24 hours but then went cold again. If we put the heating on, we seemed to have hot water in the kitchen but it wasn't cold enough to warrant having the heating on so we ended up boiling the kettle or filling the bowl with hot water using the shower. I noticed there were other comments about this in the guest book going back to July and assume the problem has still not been resolved. ...

I noticed there were other comments about this in the guest book going back to July and assume the problem has still not been resolved. That aside, the cottage was lovely. Had everything we needed, was cosy and comfortable. Clean and tidy with a lovely master bedroom. Plus it was ideally based for all the village amenities. Would definitely recommend and use again.
