Initial impressions are WOW however sadly this did not last. Hot tub leaked making it unusable-3 attempts to fix before ordering a part on day 4 of holiday. Dishwasher is installed incorrectly causing injury-owner already aware but "hadn't got round to replacing" Everything above eye level covered in dust, bedroom light covered in cobwebs. Hoover lRead moreeft clogged up with dust and hair along with dirty mop. Owners made us feel like an inconvenience as they were on holiday at the time. Hide

Super cottage - ticked all the boxes. There is a constant traffic flow on passing road, especially during the 'going to work time'. Should this be mentioned in details of the cottage?

We loved this cottage. Good location for driving down to the coast. Pig cottage was well equipped. Bed and furnishings were very comfy. Wood burning hot tub takes some work but was worth the wait. It Was great for our little pug to be in a safe enclosed garden . Prosecco and flowers on arrival were a lovely touch.
