This cottage had everything you could have wanted in a cottage, home from home. warm and cosy if cold and wet, beds were very comfortable, kitchen had all you needed in a kitchen, The owners were on hand if you needed anything and where to find it or to know anything about the area or where to visit. Wifi was an added bonus, so we could use a computer and also keep up with emails and anything else we needed to find out. Also very well maintained. It has an on suite bedroom downstairs for anyone unable to get upstairs, with 3 beds if needed. just one step to go up from parking area outside cottage if going to use the downstairs..
