  • Excellent appealing cottage with tons of character

    Excellent appealing cottage with tons of character. Perfect for a couple. Would definitely stay again. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because the unexpected 4am train arriving at the port on Tuesday morning was very loud.

    The cottage is lovely -- we enjoyed the shower, the bed was very comfortable, and we appreciated the food. A couple of minor points: a wastebasket in the bathroom would be nice; as we were there in winter, it was also a bit cold, even with the heater on; the clothes drier took about 5 hours to dry a load.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Hi, Thank you for your feedback, we will take a look at the drier and also the heat pump. She is a old cottage and insulation is limited. But we will look into your concerns. Thank you
