Pity !
Having read reviews raving about the cottage we decided to book , however we were quite dissapointed with our choice ... The cottage was a bit dirty and although i don't mind sharing my holiday with spiders occasionally as this is expected in cottages , there seemed to be webs hanging everywhere and the spiders obviously had taken over , dust was also a feature ,therefore i think it was given a quick once over before we got there. The bed / snug under the stairs was dreadfully uncomfortable and my mum had to spend the rest of the week on the sofa , she also found ants on the bedsheets of this snug and wasn't prepared to spend the night with them. The grill in the kitchen was broke and so was the extractor fan so made cooking in such a small area a little smoky/steamy to say the least. Need to invest in a decent shower curtain or screen as water leaks onto the floor and it then becomes a slippery hazard , as my mum , who is 67 found this out . The beds are not comfortable at all , i think the mattress is ready for a change ! Even though we definitely did not need a fire it was a good job as we were promised a open wood fire but had an ugly electric one placed in front of it , so it would have been pretty grim if it had have been cold. The area itself is lovely with stunning views but the garden is not secure and we couldn't let our pooch run freely , there are 4/5 other dogs living at the owners property down the drive and they come freely into the garden , now they aren't unfriendly dogs and i am an animal lover , but my dog is an emotional wreck having been abused and isn't use to dogs giving so much attention so this was awkward . The cottage just needs a more attention to detail and have a good dust down, i think the owners need help as they have more cottages and maybe in busy periods they need a hand. Its a pity , as it could be lovely. If guests are paying the money they expect certain standards , unfortunately we left early as my mum was starting to suffer. It should say it sleeps four , not five and maybe re do this online.

Lovely cosy cottage, great location, friendly owners, but definitely not 4 stars and too small for 5
Beautiful cosy cottage will all conveniences and lovely gardens. The cottage is 3 stars for the quality of accommodation, in my opinion, not 4(furniture, conveniences). It is a very small cottage, lovely for a couple and maybe for 2 kids, but definitely not for 5 adults. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We had a great time. Stunning location.

The whole experience was great, the location was better than expected and so close to everything. The cottage was cosy with fantastic views.
Mr Dawson
