    Unfortunately i don't like to have a moan and complain, but the cottage was overun with Cobwebs and spiders. The sofa you sink to the floor and the whole place now needs a 100% refurb. i noticed the property and cottages were for sale so maybe that is the reason. it is a shame because the views and location is superb. Bed was comfortable but my wife and friends wife spent some of the weekend cleaning not value for money i'm afraid.
