We stayed here for a week in the spring, in what is now the self catering part, not B&B. It was not nice I am afraid. The windows had to be left ajar as the place was damp otherwise. The furniture and everything about it was really dated and musty. The bath was stained. There was no shower except a handheld one which dribbled water. A camping stove as a cooker. Cobwebs in cupboards and everything felt grubby. There was nowhere to hang your wet coats unless you put them in the wardrobe in the bedroom. The TV was stupidly small and no DVD player. There were no luxuries at all, and to be honest lacking on the necessities.
The location is faultless, stunning views and the area around it is just beautiful.
But I am afraid the cottage itself was horrible, and really needs a revamp, placed as a 3* rating on the site we booked was totally wrong, Id say 2* if that.
We ended up staying in a hotel for the night, as we were miserable there, never again! I have stayed all around the UK, and paid the usual rate I'd pay anywhere else but got nowhere near the accomadation I'd expect for the money.
