    The cottage was very clean, as were the towels and bed linen. Unfortunately, the bath and shower were near on impossible to use as a beam is so low it is almost impossible to sit in the bath or stand in the shower. The sofa and chair were wobbly and the cottage is heated by electric radiators which are inefficient when it is cold. There wasn't a welcome pack to explain where local amenities were and it took us a day to locate logs for the log burner. We couldn't find an outside bin and had to keep our rubbish in the cottage. The smart metre was the final straw - having to pay twice to heat a freezing cottage (logs and electricity). This could be a lovely cottage but it needs updating.

    Quince cottage is cosy and in good location for driving out to places of interest. Lovely hilltop views and ideal for walks across fields. The quirkiness of the cottage means it may not be ideal for taller people due to low beams. The bed was extremely comfortable with fresh white linen and the bath towels were good too. A downside was the water flow to the bath, which in particular, takes an age to fill up. No mop, or iron provided and no secure gate to lane which means dogs have to be watched. Kitchen appliances modern but units could do with modernisation. Good value for money and we enjoyed our stay.

    The interior of cottage is challenging. The stairs are very steep.. Like a carpeted ladder. My husband and myself are tall.. 5'8" and 6'2".lots of beams and sloping ceilings for head bashing. Bathing and showering impossible.. Beam across Bath.. Steps up and down throughout, all with differing heights. This is to be expected in a building of this age and it being modified to suit today's interior expectations. Electricity is extra. So if your there in colder months be prepared to pay for the heating.. The interior is chilly. That said.. A pleasant head cracking, not standing upright stay for a week. The countryside made up for it.!!!! Give it a go!!!!

    Wonderful location, lovely cottage, Only problem bathroom a real challenge!! Shower almost impossible to use with sloppy ceiling/beam Being a bigger lady bath could have been normal shaped rather than curved!! Needs thinking about and changing? Garden lovely but needs a few little fence's to make dog friendly ? Apart from these moans which I dismissed when booking as I liked the overall look had a brill week ?

    As soon as I walked in the cottage felt homely and just me and what I needed after 30 years without a holiday. A get away from life, with all you really need for a quiet, peaceful, but friendly hamlet holiday maybe for the older person, maybe not. My dogs loved the garden and local regular birds, as did I, and doing the local walks from the front door. Very clean and did not feel like anyone had been in there just before, with a nice touch of the lovely white towels and sheets, although I did take my own. Have booked again already.
