The cottage was really lovely. Tastefully decorated in muted shades, well appointed and very clean. Arrival was pre arranged and we were able to access the cottage ourselves with the use of the safe key code. Milk and bread was provided along with tea, coffee and biscuits which was very welcome. The master bedroom was very comfortable with beautiful bedding and luxurious mattress. Plenty of built in wardrobe and storage space. The smaller room was compact for 2 adults sharing. The only slight problem we had during our stay was with the overhead shower which we struggled to keep watertight with the shower curtains. We did however have a lovely break and would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage as a great base for exploring the area. Thank you Jo for letting us stay in your beautiful home.
