We recently stayed at the cottages as we had a wedding near by. I was disgusted by how we were treated, I have never came across ruder owners/Managers in my life.
We arrived at the cottages with a few extra people in tow, only to get dressed and we were abused by the owners Ian and Pam, and they wouldnt allow close friends family to access our room to get changed.
Can i also add that Ian wouldnt allow my close friend into our cottage to feed her baby on the couch when it was raining outside.
I have never been treated like that in my existence. Disgusting. They made out that we were bringing a bus load of drunks into their B&B.
Can i add that the bed was tiny and our feet were hanging off the end. Eggs left for breakfast but no cooking facilities. So not sure how we were meant to cook the eggs?? Very over priced for what is was.
Really Disapointing - Will never go back or would not recommend in a million years.
