One to avoid. Despite the photo don't be fooled. The outside was dirty and covered in damp. Prior to arrival there was no contact from the owner and upon arrival the keys were handed over in the pub next door with no checks of who we were. No welcome pack once inside. There were several bags if waste piled up by the back door into the yard and no sign of a wheelie bin. Bring on the vermin. There was no guide to the heating system or the washer, had to spend time on google and you tube to figure out what programme to use. The pans in the cupboards were rusty so had to eat out. The dryer when we finally found it was in the 'games room' thankfully we noticed the mould prior to using it. The dishwasher didn't drain and had last visitors food scraps in, had to resort to the old washing up bowl. If you fancy a shower good luck if someone up the street is making a cup of tea. If and when it improves the drainage is that poor the shower tray fills up and spills out onto the bathroom floor. Expensive for what it is. Look somewhere else. Wish we had.

The cottage was immaculate and spacious and close to all local amenities. The views of the sunsets were spectacular.
