    We had a lovely, relaxing weekend! Great, quiet location with excellent pub food just up the road. The accommodation was much bigger than we thought it would be and the hot tub was fab. We would definitely stay again!

    The cottage was lovely but it would have been good if we had been provided with a few more essential items; more tea towels, oven glove, kitchen roll etc. A couple of minor additions would also make the bathrooms more user friendly i.e. a shelf of some description in the shower of the en suite so you’ve somewhere to put your toiletries and some towel hooks in both the en suite and the main bathroom. That being said, overall we had a lovely time, the cottage has been done out to a high standard, is in a lovely location and it was so peaceful sitting outside. For those with dogs it would have been better if the garden was better enclosed so that they could be off the lead in the garden but again that a minor point.
