This is a beautiful cottage in a bygone style.
The owner, who is very pleasant and generous, must have gone to no end of trouble with the furnishings to make it into almost a museum-piece! I mean that in a complimentary way!
There are disadvantages, because it is very tiny but nonetheless, very comfortable. It does not have the minimum amount of furnishings to "get by" but it is full of antiques, old pictures, lovely curtains, and a million cushions.
The modern equipment all works well - the shower, washing machine and cooker.
The stairs are very steep, but despite being arthritic, I was able to get up and down them well after a few goes. I would mention though, like a previous guest, that it would help if the left-hand rail could be mounted the right way up, as it is upside down at the moment so you can't grip it.
We stayed over Christmas, and we were bowled over by the beautiful decorations, and generosity in providing champagne (as opposed to Prosecco which I hate!) and Christmas crackers, as well as preserves.
The bed was very comfortable too. I would say it was quite cold upstairs for the first 24 hours, but it warmed up after that.
It is a lovely place to stay around Christmas. We got to join in Tom Bawcocks Eve and even got some stargazey pie! It helps to be next-door-but-one to The Ship and in the middle of it all.
The price is also very reasonable - this is an owner you can trust.
Note that for loading and unloading, you can usually use the tiny space outside the Ship Inn.
