    This Cottage is an Ideal walkers billet. The double bedroom smells a bit musty. One member of the party has a terminal lung condition and so we could not put her in there. ( she is 88). For relatively fit people who are out most of the day its fine. For older people who want to look at a view, its not so good the only view from the living room being a courtyard. Bathrooms are great. Kitchen is good. The owners were very helpful and friendly. The owners caravan club CL site has a very good view and If I had a caravan I would certainly use it!
