The cottage was absolutely immaculate and beautifully presented. Wine on the table on arrival was a lovely touch. The photos wed seen online didnt really do it justice. Only issues we had were that the directions to get there were out of date - the tv shop and library it directs you past no longer exist! And the bathroom radiator was stuck on even when you turned it off completely - less good when you have young kids you dont want to burn themselves on it. But those were minor issues in the scheme of things. We would definitely return in the future.

Thank you for your review, we will look at altering the directions and pass your comments onto the owner regarding the radiator, would love to welcome you back again in the future.
