  • Pros: Very secluded and peaceful

    Pros: Very secluded and peaceful. Lovely greenery. Handy to town. Clean. Good amenities. Great shower and bath. Woodburner very effective. Cons: Hot water not hot enough to run a steaming hot bath on a cold day; even with hot water booster on, the bath required three kettles full of boiling water to get hot enough. Small; only one couch, and no easy chairs, so if two people want to lounge about, they have to compromise on who gets to be comfortable. Overall verdict: A lovely small green oasis.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks very much Amy we are glad you enjoyed your stay, but sorry to hear you didn't have the perfect bath, we have since reviewed the Hot Water booster switch, and now recommend this is pushed on at least an hour before pouring a long bath to ensure the water is piping hot. We have labelled this and have the instructions at the cottage for guests.
