This is a lovely stone cottage, which is very remote about 2 miles through narrow lanes and fields. The cottage was lovely, warm, clean and well equipped which made the stay enjoyable especially as the weather was not great. There was lots of information at the cottage about what to do which was helpful,.However, we would have given 5 stars if the grass had been cut in the garden, we were up to our knees in places which made it feel a little unkempt!

Everything is perfect. The only thing is one of seats is not so comforteble for us maybe someone else does not mind. We are both very large and then it is not so nice.
