Stayed at the Chaplin cottage for a weekend in June, loved this little cottage, very dog friendly with enclosed courtyard area, even doggy poo bags and dog towel were provided if needed. Very clean cottage, bed was very comfortable and loved the sunset view from the lounge in the evening. Kitchen had everything you would need and more, this place far exceeded my expectations. Wonderful countryside views and wildlife. Will definitely be back, hopefully for a longer stay next time :)
I booked a 6 night stay here with my wife and baby. We were looking forward to a relaxing stay in a what looks like well presented cottage. I am sad to say that immediately upon arrival we were disappointing. The photograph of the cottage exterior leads you to believe this is where you will stay. When you enter the property you are in a shared hallway and then when you get to your door it opens into a very small front room which has a poor quality dining table and sofa. There is also a kitchen in this room which makes it feel even smaller. The next room is the bedroom and that is it. The two windows you see in the photograph are not where you will be staying, one of them is for the property next door. (very thin walls so hope you don't get noisy neighbours!)
The furniture is in poor condition, the sofa is old and worn as is the dining table. The bedroom furniture appears to be made from thin cardboard and although there are 6 drawers we could only get the bottom drawers to open.
As you can see we were not impressed and on the first morning of our stay there was a huge swarm of flies on the rear. They must be a regular feature as all the photo's in the cottage (3 of them) have hundred of dead flies behind the glass (see attached photo).
This is the point when we decided this is not the place we want to stay and so left straight away. I kindly asked the owner if they could call me to discuss but I was blanked, no response to calls and txt messages. The cute cottage that it is made out to be is not what you will find. Save your money and book somewhere else.

Cottage was spotless and definitely dog friendly , very thoughtful little extras not expected but much appreciated, lovely surroundings very quiet with views out onto paddock and fields beyond and lots of wildlife to keep us amused till dusk. Lovely walks for the dogs and having use of the paddock for them was a bonus.
