We were made very welcome and the house and location were excellent, well equipped warm and comfortable. The weather was perfect too which was a bonus. Everything we had hoped for as a short holiday location.
Cheap and cheerful

Overall this cottage represented good value for money, and I can recommend it on that account.
On the good side, the furnishings were quite new and of reasonable quality, both in the living room and in the bedrooms.
On the downside:
- The diswasher was too small and too underpowered. It didn't get the crocks clean; many of the plates and glasses etc were just slightly dirty when we arrived; we washed a lot by hand - and left the kitchen a whole lot cleaner than when we arrived!
- The showers were feeble
- The bathrooms generally were cold - you had to turn on a fan heater to warm them up, which was noisy and took time to work; also towels just didn't get dry.
- Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, the attitude of the owners wasn't pleasant. There was no welcome pack - for instance, other cottages we have rented have provided a few teabags, sachets of sugar, etc to get you started. And although we left the kitchen spotless, they actually wrote to me to complain that we hadn't emptied the diswasher before leaving!!!
