This cottage is in a beautiful location. Our room was cold, but Katrina did offer to turn heating on, which we took up later in the evening after returning from our meal at The Bat & Ball. On arrival we were told in no uncertain terms that Katrina would not cook sausages for a 7:30am breakfast (we needed this as I was on la manior cookery school with early start), which left us speechless! We were so taken aback by this that we couldn't even comment. The next morning, sure enough my wife was presented with one rasher of bacon and a few mushrooms (she doesn't like eggs), I was lucky, two rashers, poached egg & few mushrooms. At £80 for the night, this meagre breakfast and such treatment of paying guests is disgraceful. Dogs in breakfast room whilst we ate was not to our liking either, nor the dog hairs on towels and bedding. On reelection, paying a tiny bit extra for a room at The Bat & Ball where we had a fantastic evening meal, would've been money well spent. If you don't mind dog hairs and don't need 7:30 breakfasts or don't like sausages, pay Katrina a visit.
