    I was very disappointed with this cottage, I booked it based on the main picture which was very misleading as it makes it out that you are booking the cottage not just the black part shown in the picture. The internal pictures where accurate to what you got. You were able to share the main garden but it would have been better for a private garden to sit in nearer to the cottage. There was cobwebs in the window which wasn't very good. The bed was very uncomfortable, it would have been better to have a sofa bed so you could sit on a night and watch the television rather than having to sit on the bed all the time. Also not sure why there isn't a cooker in the property as there was room, I don't think two rings on top of a microwave oven is acceptable. I wouldn't recommend this cottage. The main road outside is busy at all times in turn make the cottage noisey, complimentary ear plugs would be a good idea. The water kept over heating and making a noise, I worked out where the switch was to turn it off after a very noisey first night, this may be something to note in the notes for guests.

    Lovely cottage very good location, unfortunately the cottage is in need of an update ie the bed and linen, heating is not sufficient for the place everything was damp and felt wet. And smelt like a old wardrobe a real shame really.
