This was, as everyone has said, a lovely, clean, well placed cottage but there simply isn't enough room for a family of 4 - 2 adults, 2 children (9+7yrs old) - plus 2 dogs which the cottage details say there should be.
There's nowhere to put that number of wet coats or walking boots, for starters, (we went in October), or your binoculars and bird books (it is a great birdwatching area), furniture had constantly to be rearranged to accommodate whatever we were doing and the dining table had to be got out and put back every time we ate - this is a self catering cottage after all so we expected to self cater. No storage in kids' room, even trouble opening and shutting their bedroom door it was so tight for space.
For 2 adults, with or without dogs, it would be great. For 2 adults and a child or 2 children and an adult, without dogs, it would probably be great. If you wanted to stay there, as a family, only cater for breakfast and eat out every lunch and evening, and bring very little with you, it would, possibly, be great. But when it's full to capacity with 2 adults, 2 children, 2 dogs AND your holiday luggage/pastime equipment (and it's hardly like we were surfers or anything, nothing big and bulky!) it isn't, I'm afraid.
Lovely place just don't take the maximum number of people and pets if you want to relax. I've given it a poor, instead of an average, because of this - it should be able to fit comfortably the number of people/pets it says it does, not just be a nice place for fewer folk/furry friends.
Fantastic area, though, which we visit over and over again!
