Management response:

Thank you Richard, a very nice review that we really appreciate, it describes the cottage very well. We do try to provide all the basic things that guests will need saving a late rush to the shops, we book holiday cottages every year and have never found anywhere yet that supply the range of items that we do. Always pleased...

Great little cottage which had all we needed for our family 4 adults and 9month baby. Stephen was very helpful and was keen to make our stay enjoyable. Would recommend only tricky thing was having 2 cars as parking was a slight problem.

Management response:

Thank you for your review, pleased you all enjoyed your week at the cottage, sorry you had a slight problem with the parking, not something that has ever been mentioned over the years. Normally only one other car parks there and it is possible to park 4, I guess having the 2 cars can make it trickier.
