Despite the issues with the beds not being made & the 'tired' furniture mentioned previously, the accomodation was very good & week equipped so we had a very enjoyable stay.

Lovely cottage. A couple of areas of improvement:

- it would be good to have a manual on the property that contains all the information (Wifi etc)

- after a long journey it would be nice to arrive and NOT have to make your beds up.

- It would make life easier if you didn’t have to bring towels (no hand towels for bathroom)

Apart from that it was a great stay. Spacious with nice layout and gardens.
