Nice cottage but a bit tired
Good basic accommodation but with quite a lot of downsides. Air extractor in the bathroom was very noisy (it sounded like it was driven by an old chain)! No welcome pack not even a pint of milk, severe lack of pots and pans (no pans to put pizzas on etc). No curtains or blinds in the kitchen, inside door or outside door so if you came downstairs in the night to use the toilet people could see you (luckily it was only sheep overlooking the windows and doors). Couldn't get the WiFi to work , there was a code left on a scrap of old envelope but wouldn't connect. The handrail that came down the stairs was too short and didn't lead down to the bottom step (bottom step was a different size to all the rest, I nearly fell down a couple of times. There was no real fire only an electric one which was a big disappointment. No Christmas decorations, we stayed from 14th to 17th December. There was a gale blowing under the front door, could have done with a curtain there. No footpaths to walk the dog. Dressing room upstairs should be used as an onsuite bathroom. On the positive side the back of the cottage overlooked a field of sheep and was nice that it was located in a quiet place.

Well equipped, cozy cottage
Just had a pleasant stay at Scarah Bank Cottage. Photographs show property exactly as it is. Photograph is of number 7 NOT number 6 as a previous reviewer had incorrectly stated. Cottage was very well equipped, kitchen even had a slow cooker. Plenty of coal in the coal bunker and full bag of kindling, along with several newspapers, so no problems in having a fire. Very comfortable bed and spotless bedding. Bedroom really was a lovely, light, sunny room. Dressing room could certainly be used as another bedroom which I am very surprised it isnt as property is big enough for 3 people. Shower worked perfectly and bathroom in excellent order. Wall mounted electric heaters heated property to a lovely temperature. Only room that was uncomfortably cold was the kitchen as we couldnt get the radiator to work, but we managed fine. Nice back garden, all secure which was great for our little dog. Yes the cottage is situated on a busy road and traffic noise can be heard.

Great location with loads of different places to visit and walk the dog nearby. The house was perfect, everything you need for a getaway. A lovely house, lovely holiday.

This photo is showing number 6 next door and NOT 7 Scarah Bank Cottage
The shower is broken and doesn't work properly. Only 1 bucket of coal left for us no kindling. TV aerial defective ie, broken wires, spasmodic reception. As we had no coal we had no heating in the kitchen, bathroom or bedroom. The open fire heats the radiators in these rooms. There are only 2 small oil filled electric heaters to keep the whole house warm. We had snow, rain, high winds and the temperature dropped to minus 2 so we were exceptionally cold. We found the fridge smelly and the kitchen bin lid was filthy when we arrived. The bin for the ashes was full to the brim. Couldn`t get an answer from the owner when we rang.

Well situated location, good views and generally comfortable. We would be very happy to stay again.
