Overall we were delighted with the cottage and its position was very convenient for touring the area. We also appreciated having very reliable wifi and the weather was superb.We did have one concern, which was the safety issue in the shower room. The tiles were very slippery when wet and also it would be helpful to have some hooks and rails for towels

Appointed in modern and comprehensive style, all kitchen, living room and bathroom amenities are exactly what you'd want at home. I really can't fault the accommodation. My only criticism is that being turfed out at 10am on a Sunday is a bit of a challenge. (And yes, we did get a text reminding us that we were late out). That said, we were gone by 10:30 and they were accepting of this.
