“Nice location but lacking in amenities”
Reviewed 22 August 2012

If you are staying here bring along cleaners. Bathroom/floors/windows not very clean at all. The worst beds we have ever had in a cottage. When someone rolls over in one bedroom you can hear it at the other end of the cottage. Strange squeaking noise everytime you move. Enough to wake you and others up. Bring your own towels, tea towels, knives, potato peeler etc. This is probably the worst equipped cottage we have ever rented. Strange they had two cork screws and no potato peeler.... Stove oven only works when set to 500 d. The one shining light is the pool which was wonderful.

Bottom line tired, old and worn. There are nicer places around for less money!!
