The hosts had gone to a lot of trouble to make this cottage as comfortable and welcoming as they could. There was a good gas heater in the lounge plus all the usual amenities, a heater and a heated towel rail in the very modern shower-cum-laundry room and a heater and electric blankets in the bedroom. The whole place was in very good decorative order with lots of homely touches. On arrival we found a loaf of bread and some butter and jam plus cereal, biscuits and tea and coffee, even chocolates to welcome us.
There was a very useful supply of tourist brochures and maps and a more than handy folder with lots of local information including that of the local transport.
The owners were there to help when needed but otherwise left us to enjoy our privacy.
