I have thought long and hard about writing a review about Bridge Cottages and if my expectations were too high, so I have decided to stick to the facts of our stay.
We stayed for 2 nights (Sat/Sun) in the Sergeant's Quarters and our friends stayed in the Armoury Cottage in September. The rooms of the original cottage were small and quaint but that was to be expected of a cottage of the 1820's. The rooms were clean and outside was plenty of firewood The shower over the bath had plenty of hot water, the kitchen was a good working size and well appointed for cooking meals, toaster, microwave, etc.
But.....after finally getting the a picture on the tv screen it still had rolling waves of fuzz moving across the screen the whole time. Our friends had stayed in the same room a few weeks earlier and said that the tv didn't work at all then. The cleaning lady said a repair man had serviced it but maybe it's time to replaced the old box style with a new modern digital tv. Fortunately we were able to watch tv in the Armoury Cottage with our friends.
The breakfast provisions were very poor in the form of basic, weetbix and cornflakes, and long life milk. This is the first continental breakfast I've seen without any form of bread, butter and jams.
A previous review dated Dec.2011 commented on the provided fresh milk and eggs, please do not expect this. The best thing about it was we were able to catch up with friends.
