A beautiful house in a gorgeous location. You need to drive to access shops etc but the isolated location was beautiful.

Lovely cottage, fabulous location. We had 2 minor issues which were resolved very promptly, thank you. However a little more attention to detail would have made a good break, great. I have not found elsewhere a requirement to provide own loo roll, nor ever been advised to burn soaking wet wood in the stove. On these points I felt sorry I'd asked.
