We stayed here for one night in Jan 2011. I think we had a cottage called Overton. One bedroom cottage with a good size lounge, kitchen area and a small deck with a view of the town in the distance.
It is a fair hike out of town - a car is essential. I'm not sure I'd fancy a walk back up the hill in the dark.
On the plus side, the cottage was very nice. Loads of space for two people. It made a really pleasant change from hotel rooms.
One thing we weren't keen on - the spa bath - we turned it on and lots of brown/black bits came out of it. No idea what... told reception in the morning, they didn't seem overly phased.
This place is ok - lots going for it, but if you want to be able to walk around the town after a couple of glasses of the local vino, you'd be better off staying in the town. It's generally a quiet town so I'm sure there are some other lovely places.
