We stayed at Hen Cloud Cottage in October 2016.
The cottage itself was nice, tastefully decorated and had all the amenities we required.
It was starting to look a little tired around the edges.
In the bathroom the shower head was cracked and leaked, the extractor fan didn't really work (the owner had supplied a dehumidifier to run just outside the door after use), fittings were broken, etc.
The kitchen area was good, but again there were niggles: The extractor fan hood light didn't work, and a few more pans would have been useful (we cooked there nearly every day due to dietary requirements)
The heating system was good, and kept us toasty during our very autumnal stay.
The hot tub was fun, but the lid was almost impossible to lift the lid as the gas-assist was broken.
As mentioned previously, access to the property was up a very bumpy farm track, so if you don't have an all-wheel drive vehicle be prepared to take it very slowly. However, the scenery was stunning and the area was full of great places to visit, so the bumpy drive every morning was worth it!
I did get the impression that it's the end of an era for the cottage though. The owner was a little rude and uninterested when we spoke to her (we had to ask for some bedding for the single bed, and had to go to her house in person as we had zero mobile signal and so couldn't ring her. When I jokingly mentioned the lack of phone signal she responded "Well, that's not my problem is it") which was a shame as previous reviewers had sung her praises. However, as the For Sale signs were up outside I think it was just a case of the business winding down after a good run.
All in all, a very pleasant cottage that could do with a lick of paint and a freshen up - which I hope the next owners do as it really is a wonderful place.
