Excellent value for money. We loved the open fire and cosy relaxed feel of the 2 bedroom cottage. It is very rustic and - for a city family- felt a little bit like roughing it. Yet the beds were very comfortable and the house very warm and dry. Apparently there's an outdoor bath but as it was raining we didn't do too much exploring to find it. After a week of lugging our luggage up and down stairs it was a relief to be able to park at the front door.
The hosts live on site and are available if needed but otherwise left us to ourselves.
There's a beautiful stream that rushes down the back of the house, providing a lullaby as you drift off to sleep.
The only thing to warn you about is a strong potpourri fragrance throughout the cottage. I am sensitive to fragrances - headaches and nausea- and was slightly affected. Nothing that couldn't be solved by sleeping with the door open.
We all appreciated the isolation of the cottage - just outside the town. It's a loveable quirky cottage, well and truly a rural experience. I hope to return.
