    Fantastic location and views. Comfortable cottage with everything you require for a short break or a longer holiday. The owners kindly provided us with the best starter pack we've ever had.

    When we saw the reviews of the property, and some of the comments in the Guest book, we were a little apprehensive. However- we need not have worried. As my wife and I do not normally sleep well, we decided that she would have the double bed and I had the sofa bed in the lounge. We both had good nights sleep for the duration of our stay, and did not find the beds at all uncomfortable- quite the reverse. The wood burner gave the cottage a homely feel. The TV worked well, in spite of the winds on a couple of nights. With regard to previous comments regarding dogs, surely anyone staying for a short period could manage: keep your dog on a lead in the garden, and exercise it somewhere else during the day. All in all, a relaxing stay in a pleasant property.

    Beautiful location, lovely cottage but attention to a few of things would make this review one of excellence. The bed is rock hard due to sheets of wood screwed to slats; the sofa is a tad small causing guests to elbow each other; the put- you- up sofa is rock hard and uncomfortable to sit on and the cottage could do with dusting and removing the ancient dust covered cobwebs between lets; the garden wire fence could be higher as you need to accompany the dog every time they go into the garden, due to the position of the cottage on the plot, it is not possible to see the dog at all times.

    Stayed in this cottage about 6 years ago, so this is our second time. Great cottage, great area, cottage could do with a little better dusting of cobwebs otherwise quite clean. Grill on cooker not working, washing machine would not spin & patio door lock needs some attention as it took a huge amount of effort to unlock & lock, but on the whole very nice stay.
