    A well situated cottage if you want a place that is remote & tranquil. The only noise was the bleating lambs outside the back door! Very spacious cottage, with a wonderful family kitchen, and enough seating for 12-14 in the front room - perfect for several families to spend time with one another. Extremely well equipped kitchen - probably the best we have ever seen! Lots of games and jigsaws in the living room Our main issue was with the heating; it wasn't until one of our guests arrived (an engineer) that we were able to effectively fire up the boiler and get the radiators/towel rails working. The boiler does not ignite by itself so the thermostats are not particularly useful (the rooms reach temperature, the boiler turns off and then does not relight). The outdoor area has a great fire pit area but it can hardly be classed as the ideal BBQ area as there were only 3 old wooden chairs on the back patio.

    We had a problem with the heating, we couldn’t use the fire as smoke was coming into the room we were in & the bedroom above. We rang the telephone number we had to be told, the by the man who answered that his wife took care of these things, but she never got back to us. Phone signal was not good which is understandable, but made it difficult to follow up issue & did not want to waste our time chaseing issue
