    “We enjoyed our stay in this comfortable accommodation.”

    It was ideally situated for walking and had a good shop and pub within walking distance. In the cottage we found there was was a lack of crockery and cutlery, , especially as there was a dishwasher to make good use of. As the cottage accommodates four people, there would be no way the dishwasher could be made use of. There were only the two of us and we could have done with more mugs especially. The double bedroom, upstairs, had a skylight with no blind, which meant the sun and light woke guests up very early! There are also two skylights in the kitchen area with no blinds. As the weather was sunny and warm it made the kitchen uncomfortable hot.
