We had a nice time and the owners were friendly and accommodating. However we found that our particular cottage lacked a number of features that the other cottages had which isn't reflected in the price that we paid especially when compared to the cottage next door. The bed collapsed on the first night which wasn't a great start. Would be nice if tRead morehe swimming pool was open for the Easter Holidays. Quite a lot of steep steps in the cottage we stayed in so beware if you have elderly staying. Hide

Nice cottage, close to amenities. Main draw was pool for when our sons were bored, but complaints about noise in the pool by holiday makers with young children put a dampener on the holiday. Poor Wi-Fi meant we had some bored sons as we struggled to get our amazon firestick tv to stream in evenings (provided cable TVs freeview wasnt interesting) anRead mored area has poor mobile reception for devices.

We really enjoyed our stay, we had 2 dogs and 8 adults ( across 3 generations). As we were after a family gathering after Covid. As accomodation across 3 floors, gave some of us a work out, but delightful cottage. Facilities and equipment in the cottage great as we did eat in a few evenings, we didn't find anything lacking.
