  • We really liked the cottage and we were delighted with the little extras which were very much appreciated, especially as we needed a cuppa and had no milk so thank you very much.


    “The bed was a little small as we are used to a king sized bed but could understand that the doubled fitted better, but our sleep was not as good as it could have been because of that. Parking could have been a problem if we had had a larger car. I think this needs to be highlighted in the information. Finally the sofa was also a little small... we are not big people but we couldn’t sit together comfortably. Again appreciate that size of the cottage is an issue and it was delightful, everything else worked very well and we appreciated the quality of everything provided.”
