It didn't have wifi. But it did have a DVD player at the side of the TV. Overall it was value for money and I'd definitely recommend it & return to the property.

Kitchen was stocked with absolutely everything you could think of which was excellent! Having the use of leisure facilities was a treat. Great communication with the owner too.

It is a well equipped cottage, warm and comfortable with everything you need to make it a great stay. It's perfect for a romantic break or just as a retreat away from the hustle and bustle of life. The setting is idyllic and the dogs absolutely loved it. Nick is the host with the most and is so welcoming and helpful. I can't recommend this place highly enough.
