Me & my wife decided on a last minute weekend break to recharge the batteries. Found the Laurel cottage on booking.com for a decent price, we arrived on Friday at 6 o'clock and I must admit I was a bit miffed at the parking but having said that I wasn't in a good mood due to driving for nearly 3...

everything we good, nice breakfast between 8:30am and 9:30am, wifi was a bit patchy, ample parking in overflow car park, perfect location. Stayed with 22 month and nothing too much trouble, would stay again.

We stayed here for 4 nights and had a good experience. Owners were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was the same every day which is one of the reasons for losing a star.. We stayed there long enough to be put off by Engligh Breakfast every morning, or scrambled eggs :( I'd recommend a bit of variety, as it is really... More

Very friendly owners, good location in nice quite street, easy walking distance into village centre for restaurants. Well equipped rooms, we had the four poster room. Bed very comfortable slept very well. Tea and coffee facilities, wifi, ensuit, sofa , tv with DVDs player. Good breakfast choice even could have specials. Only criticism was there is no toilet brush.

As the title says "its a great place to stay". If I start with the bad points don't worry there are very few. The carpark, its behind the cottage but up a very very steep hill and its not for the fait hearted, its even trickier if someone is trying to come down or trying to park at the top.... More

A very small and old , tired establishment. Needs refurbishment quite badly. Our Room for 3 was so small there was no room to move. The bathroom was tiny and shower was really tight. Not a comfortable stay. But host Jody was warm enough and that sort of made up for the disappointment.

Stayed at Laurel Cottage in May. Travelled with a friend. Stayed in a twin room, which was very small. Bathroom was tiny. Thought the whole place looked very tired and in need of redecoration. Free wifi but does not connect. TV just kept pixelling. The breakfast was ok. Thought it was pricey for the condition of the place, but the... More

Stayed here as a last minute decision. The host was very helpful told where to park. The parking was free but the only downside was it was up a very steep hill and on parts of it was on Slate which cause to me loose control of the car once or twice. Once park left it there until time to... More
