Primrose Cottage was an absolute delight. Beautifully remote and yet plenty to do on and around the farm. Peaceful which was just what we needed. Incredibly dog-friendly, not just dog-tolerant like some places we have taken our dog. Looking forward to a repeat visit.

A bit too dark and damp for us. Definitely not suitable for 4 adults as the kitchen and lounge are very small and cramped. There is no dishwasher or a coffee machine and not equipped well enough to cook in the cottage. The advertised games room is dark, cold and musty so we didnt use it.
