A slightly hectic Christmas visit to family, with the children and the dog in tow was made all the more comfortable and enjoyable by the use of this wonderful cottage.
The carefully and sensitively modernised interior gives you a good amount of space without losing the olde worlde charm that a cottage of this age should have.
The ground floor is one large kitchen/diner/lounge, with a modern and well equipped cooking area, small (but extendable) table and comfortable lounge with wood burner. The back door leads to a small yard and outbuilding with washing machine and freezer.
Stairs lead you up to a landing and large bedroom and bathroom with shower over bath, toilet and sink which make excellent use of the space.
Up a further flight of stairs to a second landing, a single bedroom and large twin bedroom.
Storage space is a little limited, but unless you bring an entire wardrobe, is enough for your needs for a week.
The cottage was exceptionally clean, well equipped, had a Christmas tree and decisions and we had even been left bowls and a towel for the dog and foil trays for cooking the Christmas dinner.
Located less than five minutes walk from the castle and woods, which are excellent for walking dogs in, parking is on street and we managed to park within sight of the cottage just up Castlegate.
Five minutes walk into the main high street will find you facing a superb selection of pubs, cafes, independent shops and a well stocked Co-Op.
We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return to this cottage.
