We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, it was a good base for visiting the surrounding area. We would like to mention there are several steps up & down into several of the rooms and this might affect people with restricted mobility. We regularly holiday in self catering cottages and realise that different properties provide different equipment & essentialRead mores and feel this is more on the basic side, more aimed at those who prefer to eat out a lot. Overall a lovely holiday. Hide

Nice comfortable cottage. Could be improved to have had a small area attached to it so that the dog could have been outside in the lovely weather.
