The 'cottages' were built within the last ten years and taken over by the current owners six years ago. We paid up front for two weeks. We had to change cottages on the second day because of very poor internet reception; as we were househunting and working remotely internet coverage was very important. We moved to the 2 bed cottage closest to the main house and coverage was better though intermittent. If you really do need constant internet access I would suggest you stay elsewhere. The 'cottages' are in a peaceful site. We had the place to ourselves and as they are built close together it may not be quite so peaceful with full occupancy. We stayed in two 'cottages' as explained above and both were in a tired condition; little things like a kettle that doesn't work all the time, uncomfortable lounge furniture, kitchen chairs that may collapse on you - though we did a swap with the ones next door which improved things. The bathrooms were okay though grubby grouting is a turn off and lack of a bathroom blind or curtain is fine if you are an exhibitionist - mind you apart from the owners going backwards and forward the only creature to look in might be the peacock though of course with full occupancy you would have a human audience whilst you deal with your ablutions! Really the place could do with a revamp, new furniture, better ovens, good quality kettles and kitchen equipment, it all verges on 'adequate' and no more than that. The positive things : friendly and helpful owners, friendly dogs, and pleasant walking country. Oh, at the end of our stay we had to pay an additional 60 Euros for utilities.
