Very clean and we had all we needed, a fridge with a small freezer would have been ideal but for just the 2 of us it was fine. I enjoyed my evening with the owners cat who decided to make itself comfortable on our laps! It was nice seeing the dog and the chickens. The only issue we had was that the DVD player didn't work, the owner let us try another one from their home but that was not working either so we didn't get to watch the boxset we had planned. Other than that the cottage was well worth the visit.
