Comfortable bed although a smallish double. Well stocked and equipped kitchen. Comfy sofa large telly and a lovely little garden. Small down sides-log burner doesn't kick out much heat it all goes up the chimney. Not for tall people over 5'10 (hit head on ceiling twice!) and be careful on the cottage stairs.
