The cottage was in a great location and looked simply charming from the outside. Upon entering the cottage I was delighted to find the furniture and fixtures were vintage (circa mid-1980's if I'm not mistaken). I was raised in the 80's so it took me right back and made me feel completely at home. I've always had an affinity for carboot sales and bric-a-brac in general, so opening every cupboard and draw was a truly exciting experience, as I was never quite sure what I would find amongst the many, many unnecessary items. I've always been a believer in challenging one's immune system with filth and bacteria. I believe it was Nietzsche who said "what doesn't kill me, makes me stronger". This is certainly the cottage to do that, however any potential guests with weakened immune systems may want to opt out as this cottage is unforgiving of the vulnerable. The cottage comes equipped with a fully functional VHS player. For those of you under the age of 30, fear not - this is what we used to watch films on before DVDs and streaming. Although, I agree it probably belongs in a protected environment, like a museum, it was fascinating to see one out in the wild. A word of warning - the VHS tape labelled 'Jurassic Park' is missing the first 20 mins of the film, as someone has taped over it with Kavanagh QC. Some character development is lost but you still get most of the dinosaur action. There are some breathtaking waterfalls in the area but for those that don't wish to travel you'll be delighted to know there's a small waterfall installed at the cottage above the back door - Farfield Force, I call it. It's truly wonderful to watch the water cascade from the overflow pipe all day. We sat and watched it for hours one evening - simply enchanting. The added bonus of the cottage having its own waterfall is that it creates an all year 'round ice-rink on the rear patio. Don't worry, there's no need to bring your ice skates as you'll be guaranteed to slip on it no matter what you're wearing. This is quite a unique feature and particularly well suited to those who like living dangerously. Attempting to get warm water through the showerhead became a Krypton Factor-like challenge, and one I must confess to failing at. However, if you like scrambling around in a puddle of water like a medieval peasant then this is the bathroom for you. The other unique feature of the bathroom was the slanting toilet. This was particularly exciting as I have longed to know what it felt like to have a poo on the Titanic as it listed in the water, post iceberg collision - a very moving experience…quite literally. That wasn't the only fun to be had in the cottage. Wait until you try opening the front door with its will it or won't it open/close locking mechanism. We liked to make a game out of this and guess whether it would open straight away or take several minutes. This would be particularly exciting during a house fire at night. Overall, I'd say the cottage wasn't quite as charming as the hotel from The Shining but It wasn't far off. We probably wouldn't book here again as we wouldn't want to deprive others of such a quality holidaying experience.
