The cottage is well laid out with plenty of space in every room. The furniture is a little dated but that adds character to the cottage. The 1 drawback I had was lack of disability facilities in the bathroom ie: no grab rails, disabibility stool in shower or raised loo.

The Cottage has ample room for 4/5 people and two large dogs. It was clean inside & out and had a dishwasher & washing machine which is helpful. The interior could do with updating, however it fits the keepers cottage style. The location is very good with plenty to do within a small area.

My wife and I loved our week here. There were only 2 of us so we had loads of space, but it would still be plenty of room with a family of 5.

Lovely comfortable and cosy cottage. Well equipped kitchen, bedding and towels provided were very clean. Heating came on with the flick of a switch and soon warmed up. Paddock area was great to let our dog have a run in, but be warned it is not fully enclosed. We had a great week and would recommend to our friends.
