The cottage is located in a quiet location where there are no public transport links and only small shops within a few miles. It is advisable to bring some basic provisions. Although we had a satnav we found it useful to have a large scale map of the area. The local lanes are narrow and we found it easiest to initially go north to the nearest main Read moreroad before travelling further. The cottage owners were very helpful when asked for assistance.

Disapponiting, the image of the downstairs used on the website gave one impression, the reality was different.

The cottage whilst pleasant is dark and crammed with unnecessary furniture. Lose the huge dining table and free up a lot of space. The television cannot be seen from the sofa. The bed whilst huge is very hard and uncomfortable, we awoke every morning with sore backs, hips and shoulders.
