    Really enjoyed our stay. A lovely cottage in a great location. Would visit again without hesitation



    out of 10

    Spacious house in a good location. Plenty walking routes from the door. Good WiFi and mobile reception. Bear in mind the property is not accepting new bookings for pets but honouring historic booking so if you have an allergy may be best to check as there were pet hairs about. Also, take with you supplies of toilet roll, salt, pepper, cling film, bin bags etc as these sundries are not provided. fair enough as it is self catering but you do quite often find them. There was the odd maintenance issue e.g loose floorboard at the top of the stairs which will hopefully have been addressed.

    No longer takes dogs so cannot stay there again



    out of 10

    Great little holiday home, size probably suit 2 adults and 2 children rather than 4 adults but very nice.



    out of 10

    Everything was superb apart from when we arrived there was a half eaten bar of chocolate and only one toilet roll and no bin liners and the tv was constantly breaking up with the reception. Other than that the location made up for it but when you spend good money for 4 days you expect everything to be perfect! Hopefully this will be noted so the next occupants have 100% satisfaction!
