Sadly we were not given any exact directions to the cottage, so arriving in the dark late at night proved a challenge. We couldn't find a name plaque, so we had no idea where the cottage was. The cottage was well equipped and comfortable. The tv needs updating.

A superb cottage, even if it’s slightly ‘old-school’, in a stupendous location.

A lovely homely cottage in heart of Muker. Nice and warm and very comfortable. Kitchen only equipped basically and the dishwasher did not work at all. Limited parking though. A single parking space shared by two cottages; we were fine but not sure how we would have managed in high season with both cottages occupied.
