Cottage in a superb location, good size and kitchen very well stocked with utensils etc. If above problems sorted it would be a fantastic property. Loved the enclosed garden for our dog and lots of local places to visit and good walks.

This cottage is a great location. Unfortunate about the uncomfortable furniture in particular the bed. Hardest mattress in the county.
