  • "Beautiful cottage very comfortable."

    Only negatives it could really use a tv in bedroom. Also front door needs attention very awkward to lock and unlock.

    Thank you for your feedback and kind words about Hillside. We have taken on your comments about a TV in the bedroom and will look into this further. We have added a note on how to open the front door to our key collection details. Kind regards Lisa Property Owner
