5 star reviewA lovely and well enough equipped little cottage in a peaceful location.
Being on a private estate the traffic is practically non-existent and mostly hidden by trees anyway so there is a nice feeling of being alone in the countryside.
As a previous reviewer pointed out there is a strong dog smell throughout the house (to be expected in a pet friendly location obviously) so be sure to take some air fresheners if that may bother you.
Will almost certainly be booking again in the future.
5 star reviewThe location was perfect for us, no phone reception, no traffic noise just plenty of wild life.
The bungalow itself needs updating. The bathroom especially needs a new suite. The toilet cistern was well worn and the handle almost falling out and the bath was cracked on the bottom.
Several of the windows were cracked and several could not be opened as they were painted over.
The carpets were really worn and there was a doggy smell in several places.
