The bed was very comfortable, the cottage was cosy with everything you need for a break away with a very well equipped kitchen. We did try cooking some breakfast one morning but had no success with getting the oven to work - I am sure we were just being a bit thick so some instructions would have been helpful, but no real problem as there were plenty of tasty looking cafes and restaurants near by and holidays are for eating out anyway! As previous reviews have mentioned, car parking isn't immediately close by but not too far to walk - a short stroll on a nice day. Overall the cottage was lovely and if we were to visit the area again we would definitely stay here again. We wished we had booked for longer .
