Very Uncomfortable sofa in lounge, and dark interior. Need proper information about cooker. Needs more equipment in kitchen, pyrex dishes would have been good. Uneven path to property.

Reviewed by Melanie, 22nd February 2019

What a beautiful part of the world - so relaxing and peaceful. Formicary cottage had everything we could have wished for and more besides. We slept like babies! A great base from which to explore the area. We'll definitely be back!
