The only very small downside was a lack of hot water in the shower - no doubt down to user error. The best bit? The wood burner in the bedroom. Lovely.

It is an easy walk into the village but a bit steep on the way back. If the weather is bad there is no need to go out, you can sit in the lounge/dinner and watch the view through the large corner windows. There is parking in the road outside the house, which is the last property in the road at the top of the hill. There are several good cafes and restaurants in the village. An excellent property.
