The cottage is in an area called East Taphouse, basically the middle of nowhere. The cottage is lovely, decorated very tastefully and the furniture is of a very high standard, nothing cheap or tacky! There is absolutely everything you need there, even a washing machine and dishwasher, the bedroom has a wood burning stove in it, I used it just once during our weeks stay as I couldn't really see the point. The king size bed was extremely comfy and the bed linen wasn't bargain buy from Asda. The ensuite bathroom has a small, but deep corner bath and over head shower and the most delightful, unusual sink.
Now for the niggles and the reason I gave 3 stars. The microwave was filthy, food splatters all over it, I cleaned it the best I could but couldn't get all the old food off. The window ledge in the living room was covered in dust and what looked like bits of ceiling plaster, I had to Hoover it as I couldn't just leave it, some sachets of tea/coffee sugar ECT were left to use, I put the kettle on as soon as we arrived, made tea, put the little pot of uht milk in and it was just little white bits, the whole lot of little milks were sour! I was told there would be these left for us so didn't bring milk and it's not as if you can just nip to the shop as it's around a 15-20 min drive. The bedroom floor is the creakiest I've ever known! It's NOT possible to creep to the loo in the middle of the night without waking your partner, and the en suite has no window so is pitch black, the light switch for it is in the bedroom so you can't go in, close the door then turn the light on, you have to turn the light on then open the door flooding the bedroom with light, the log fire sits on a slate square and walking back from the loo in the dark can be very dodgy if you don't remember to walk right by the side of the bed and I stubbed by toe a few times on it, very painful!
