What a spot! Beautiful. We walked from the cottage most days which was great.
The cottage is perfect. Comfortably warm (certainly no need for a log burner) with constant hot water. Every utensil one could possibly need in the kitchen. All was spotlessly clean throughout. Beds were very comfortable with cotton sheets etc., ( I hate poly) and decent quality towels.
We didn't find the public right of way a nuisance, it was very nice to pass the time of day with the folk walking by.
We will return and also pass this gem on to family and friends.
A beautfiul building. Larger than expected. Very cosy. Good layout. Dog-friendly.
Good location for walking. Private other than walkers passing. A lovely relaxing few days away.
Beautiful grounds. Unfortunately with public footpaths running through it. The owners are attempting to make one side private though with a hedge planting. I would suggest a fence all the way around to create an enclosed private garden with a bbq area. It was cold whilst we were there and so didn't require the outside space. The property was heated well but I think a log burner would be a lovely added feature.
The kitchen was well equipped. It lacked a dishwasher and I would personally have preferred this to the washing machine. I think it would also keep it cleaner too as I found a lot of the kitchen items dirty and had to be washed before they could be used. The kitchen cupboards also needed cleaning out. The teaspoons were very tea-stained and needed replacing. The kitchen was well stocked though with utensils, oven-gloves, etc. It was nice to find kitchen roll, cling film, etc supplied. The clocks were either set to the wrong time or not working.
The entrance was a good size and a very good usable space, especially with a dog. It was a great area to use when coming in with muddy feet from a long walk. This area would definitely benefit from a bench or other seating for changing footwear. The drying cupboard was brilliant for wet clothes.
All of the windows and mirrors needed cleaning. There were also some cobwebs in places such as light fittings.
The bed was comfortable. It was nice to find tissues provided and such things as hand soap and bubble bath. The property always smelt good too with air freshners in every room.
The information leaflets could have been better. There were piles of the same leaflets. I would reduce these to one or two of each and add information such as walks and maps.
There was a good selection of games and books. I donated a jigsaw :)
The lounge area had a cream carpet which wasn't too practical. Luckily I had taken spare ground sheets and so could protect them.
Overall, we had a very enjoyable stay and would recommend.
