This is a very quirky cottage. A renovated cowshed, lots of the fixtures and fittings are reclaimed farmyard paraphernalia. These include lamps.....that were probably PAT tested by the postman, not the electrician! That said, they did the job although some of the spotlamps need replacing (and dusting). The bed is exceptionally comfortable with crisp and clean linen. Fresh fluffy towels too and hot water bottles were a nice touch. The lounge furniture is comfortable too although it seems to have been switched about compared to the official photos as it's now difficult to watch TV as the clock is the focal point of the sofa.....very odd! On the subject of TV.....take some DVDs as the TV has very poor reception, losing signal constantly ( there are a few DVDs in the box but limited choice) we were cold and had to ask the owner to turn the heating up.....it was on 14. He asked us not to leave it on constant for fear the gas ran out....despite the beautiful weather for late March, the Cowshed is draughty and we needed heating and log burner (temperamental). We took our dog and although advertised as dog friendly, we had to be careful in case he escaped. There is a field you can access for exercise but the area immediately outside including car parking and patio is not secure and as the Cowshed backs onto the busy A171 we were concerned. There is also a sign in the grass immediately outside stating no dogs. There is also a note inside that dogs must not be left alone in the cottage....so our plans for an evening drive out for dinner were scuppered. The biggest downside for me was the bathroom....it's dreadful. I know taste is subjective but really? Recycling is one thing but the bath looks like a horse trough.....it's concrete and stone, painted green....with a mat that is presumably meant to make ablutions a little more comfy.....I could only think of other people's bottoms that had sat on it....eeeeuuuuuuggghhhhh. Unusual, yes.....but narrow and uncomfortable. The basin was the same concrete, green paint. It really didn't work. The shower is fine though.....just avoid the bath! There are slippers inside the front door ...not new ones like you get in hotels.....used slippers. Robes too, which are useful. My husband put slippers on over socks.....I couldn't! You will need a vehicle, the road is too dangerous with no footpath to walk to the nearest pub which is a mile away. All this said, we had a lovely weekend and had some fabulous walking.....I had downloaded and printed walks before we arrived that were useful but there is a whopper visitors book which probably had more ideas. I won't recommend because of the bathroom and the unsecured patio area which is a shame because the Cowshed is really different and could be amazing!
