This is a nice cottage in a nice part of the country. It is ideal for a couple and just big enough. Free parking opposite the cottage and lovely gardens to the rear, which are ideal for dogs. You get an information pack in the cottage which gives you details of local walks and locations to eat, which there are plenty. The only minus is the natural light in the living room, there is none! I would visit this again and I would recommend it.
We booked for 7 nights mid September to take our small dog for a countryside break. Unfortunately although the property had been described as pet friendly, it was located literally right on a country road so our dog had to be constantly on a lead when taking him for a walk. We found the cottage to be extremely small and not up to the cleanliness standard we would expect - layers of grime and dust above the hob and on top of fridge, food stuck on a dining plate, chewing gum (not ours!) in the living room bin, sticky coffee table and very dusty around furniture.
As the cottage is located in a valley/dip, the living room is very dark and we had to have the lights on during the day, something which neither of us like, especially as the weather was bright and sunny outside. The shower room was also very small; my wife is only of slight build and she could barely get turned around inside the shower. The bedroom was cosy and homely and the bed was comfortable, however I had to shake out the drawer liners before placing my clothes inside to get rid of the dust and hairs.
We decided to cut short our long awaited break and return home on the Thursday rather than the Monday as we did not feel comfortable living in these surroundings.
The local area is really beautiful and there are some lovely walks once you get out of the dip.
