                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      We love this area with its wooded valleys, streams and amazing trees. fantastic walks starting just at the back of the cottage. The cottage suited us fine and was equiped with everything we needed, it was very clean and tidy. Just a few negatives, the lintel from the hall is low and caught both my wife and I a few times. I expect this in a cottage but this one is made of sharp stone and I would be concerned that someday someone will do a serious injury. I have modified several old stone buildings and although removing it, replacing it with wood and raising the height might seem a lot of work it is only a couple of days for a good builder. The other issue is the wiring which is quaint to say the least. Due to high level of the socket behind the TV the exstention lead is at the level of the Sky box and causes an annoying hum. This could probably be simply cured with a longer lead. Finally a warning, don't start the kitten jigsaw puzzle unless you have two weeks its really frustrating. We had perfect weather so no real complaints.
