3 star reviewHad I known that I would be staying in an isolated farm cottage I would not have booked it. The young lady (Michelle) who looked after the cottages was only there in the evenings and I saw her one time. She was very pleasant but I was under the impression that it was a working farm where there would be other human beings should I have needed help. Thank goodness for my mobile 'phone.
4 star reviewGreat cottage for the price, had everything we needed for our stay and was warm and comfortable. Owner was very accommodating and the cottage was very well situated for easy family bike rides, walking and exploring further afield. Would recommend, especially if you are on a budget.
3 star reviewGood comfortable basic accommodation, but a bit rough around the edges. A web with spider in just about every room shows that the cleaning/prep was inadequate. No conventional cooker/oven - be aware! - has a microwave/convection oven, but this became such a hassle trying to feed a family. everything worked/ran fine and the host was helpful and seemed nice. Overall reasonably okay if you expect/want average.
