    Cottage was very well equipped and really good location. The house did smell of dogs though, we had to buy air freshener and scented candles. Also the grass in the garden was really long and ther was dog poo in the garden. The shower door in the main bathroom fell off whilst the children were in the bath and there were insufficient working plug sockets In the bedrooms. Also there weren't enough bags for the recycling system at the house. Once these issues were sorted it was lovely. Sufficient parking but it was quite narrow to get to the house. We had a freelander and we managed to fit it in but it was a tight squeeze. Would recommend this cottage as long as maintenance is kept on top of!

    A good time was had by all, the house itself perfect, just the access that was troublesome (very narrow tracks).

    The old tack room is lovely, plenty of room for all the family we had a lovely week the children loved the garden. We did feel that it would be usefull to have a note on the booking info that access to the parking is quite narrow we have a large car (vw caravelle )and it was quite a shock.
