Nice cottage - good location - fabulous views... However, with a quarry just a mile up the road, having an al-fresco breakfast was not a pleasant experience with heavy trucks screaming up the hill past the end of the garden every 2-3 minutes...

Very clean and comfortable, with some nice period features. Disappointed that when sat in the garden you cannot see the castle - the wall is too high. Garden adjoins the pub garden and in fine weather it was quite noisy with a lack of privacy.

Heating is left turned off between lets but you need to move a coffee table holding the TV to switch it on. Cottage is too small for 6 people. Hide
