    Positive points are it’s quiet and secluded location, with an excellent garden, nice shower and overall it has everything you need Points for improvement are the fridge (again) which is too small for 4 and now I am not sure it’s cool enough, though hopefully this is being checked as I have raised it as an issue. It is actually much smaller than the one in a cottage for only 2 people !! No WiFi could be an issue for some Overall these issues are easily and cheaply rectifiable , it’s not much to ask really considering the weekly rates charged

    The cottage was disappointing, with rather tired décor and no adequate table on which to eat meals. There was limited space to prepare food and the fridge/freezer was too small to store much. On the plus side, the central heating worked fine and the shower worked well. The beds were OK but the blinds in the twin-bedded room didn't keep the light out satisfactorily. There is plenty to see in the area but if we visit again, we would choose different accommodation. It would have helped if there had been more information in the cottage about local facilities such as supermarkets.
