Overall we were delighted with the cottage and its position was very convenient for touring the area. We also appreciated having very reliable wifi and the weather was superb.We did have one concern, which was the safety issue in the shower room. The tiles were very slippery when wet and also it would be helpful to have some hooks and rails for towels
