Great cottage, could have been a lot lot cleaner. The decking was rotted. Fell through it on the 2nd day. Contacted the owner and when he came he left us with decking with a hole in for the last two days, which we're glad he came to do something about it but also no ideal. The decking was well overdue being sorted

We had a perfect holiday. Everything around the property is excellent. Good location for sight seeing and around the area is picturesque. Fishing and boards are on the door step. We enjoyed so much as well as our dogs loved it. House can be a bit cleaner and kitchen can be a bit more equipped and organized. But we have overlooked all that because the location is fantastic
