    We loved the cottage and it is in a lovely setting. Workmanship is top notch and the addition of slippers for guests in order that floors are saved is a brilliant idea (and cozy). Everything worked flawlessly. A big plus is that the owner is extremely helpful and deeply knowledgeable about the area. Drawbacks are that the loo is very cold in cold weather and the tub/shower err in that direction as well. A real improvement would be made with the addition of a dryer to go with the wonderful washing machine. In very rainy muddy weather without a dryer, the cottage quickly runs out of over the door and hotrail space. Space is at a premium in the cottage but perhaps some thought could be given to clothes hanging. Dogs are welcome and ours loved it.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your helpful comments. I do remember showing your husband around the cottage, as you were unable to come that day because you were taken ill. I pointed out to your husband that the fridge freezer, tumble dryer and airer were in the outbuilding opposite the kitchen and a key was provided to gain access .I also pointed out that the heated towel rails in both the bathroom and toilet were on switches just outside and timers could be adjusted to suit however long you wanted heating to come on, up to 24 hours. I am sorry this information did not get passed on to you once you arrived.
