We felt the cottage to be run down and tired, i think in comparison with some of our many stays in this area some improvements/upgrades could be made.The views are stunning.

Beautiful views, warm hospitable cottage and hosts. Ideal stop over with small children. Big safe garden for a run around after travelling and simple, comfy cottage meant a stress free stay.

We stayed 2 nights as, unfortunately, we had prepaid. Our welcome was over-effusive and a bit off-putting.  First night, the gas was turned off behind the house which we only found in the morning., so no cooking. There was no tea, coffee, sugar or milk. The electric blanket lead did not reach the outlet. There is no TV. A very beautiful setting but we won't be back
