    comfortable, clean and warm. Better signage to the cottage would have been good, or a small map in the introductory email. So nice having 3 bathrooms, lots of parking, lovely kitchen dining area, the open fire at the end of the day.

    A memorable stay. Love this place... Pre dinner drinks in the lovely garden, log fire & candles great for cosying up on the sofa watching the sun go down Perfect location, stunning views. Will definitely stay here again under one condition. Please please put curtains up to the kitchen / dining area window. Felt uncomfortable in the evenings cooking with pitch blackness outside. Anyone could have been looking in. ..... Whilst very private, you just never know who's watching....

    Great location but the cottage itself could do with some remedial work to improve it. The cottage was clean and well equipped but I felt that certain areas needed improvement and a lot of things looked like they needed repairing or replacing. The only bit of carpet in the cottage was a trip hazard as it had a lump all the way across. None of the external doors seemed secure although due to the quiet location I'm sure this isn't a problem. There were plenty of bathrooms but they were very limited in space and very outdated. Bedding was provided but our duvet was too small for the cover. I didn't feel that the cottage was true to the 4* rating but I'm sure with some tlc it could be.
