Inside the cottage was very nice and roomy but as soon as it got dark I was terrified to go outside. The spiders hanging down the sides of the cottage were huge and plentiful. Part of renting a cottage is enjoying the night time sitting outside but I wouldn't go out, it was very disappointing. There were also quite a number of stairs to get up and down to reach the fire pit at night.
Thank you for your comments. Since your stay the owner has replaced all the mattresses in the cottage and also had sprayed for the spider problem and it has been very effective.
Beautiful Cottage, but...

When we arrived at the cottage, we were pleasantly surprised. It was beautiful, very spacious and roomy and had everything that we would need. The only issue we had was with cleanliness. It was evident that it was not cleaned properly prior to our stay. There was dust, spiders and dog hair everywhere...so much so that there was clumps of hair in many of the corners. It was cleaner when we left than when we arrived. Very disappointed with that aspect of this cottage. If you have any sorts of allergies or are afraid of spiders, it may not be the cottage for you.
