My friends, partner and myself stayed at Coquet Cottage in September 2012 for a weekend. It slept 6 but was very comfortable for the 4 of us. There was underfloor heating beneath the lovely stone tiled floor. The kitchen was large and impressive. It looked like it had been recently installed, with a dishwasher, washing machine etc. The living room was spacious with a large chair, sofa and real log fire which we lit both nights. It was very cosy. The bathroom/ toilet had a hand held shower over the taps which was fine. There were two bedrooms upstairs with low sloping ceilings, very quaint and comfortable. There was also a double downstairs. The linen on the beds was fresh and clean and the beds were really comfortable. It was so quiet we all had a really good nights sleep. Our cottage had a little garden with a sun lounger, chairs and a table. We were fortunate the weather was warm and I even sunbathed for a few hours listening to the birds singing. We had a meal at the pub in the village the first night which was home cooked and very tasty. It was about a 7 minute walk but on the way back it was absolutely PITCH black so we had to use our mobile phones as torches! By the way there is no mobile phone service unless you climb up one of the nearby hills! The second night we ate at Clennel Hall and we were a bit disappointed with the very slow service, and the quality of the food was not great. We met Jackie the cleaner who was really nice, friendly and helpful. She popped by to make sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again, but next time Byre cottage which is next door looks fabulous so we'd like to stay there.
