This property was advertised as being suitable for 4-6 people so we had anticipated a reasonably sized place for our party of 4. The photos were also shot in such a way as to make the rooms look fairly large. We were therefore dismayed, on arrival, to find the 'cottage' to not be a cottage at all, but rather a converted garage (retaining an authentic double garage appearance) next to the car park of the main Leyland country house B&B, which was distinctly 'cosy' inside I.e. featuring the absolute minimum number and size of rooms that would be considered acceptable for two couples. Thank goodness we were not a party of 6.
Internally the place was fitted out to a reasonably high standard, albeit with something of an Ikea show home feel. However the kitchen was not particularly well suited to self catering and so we could only assume the rooms were often used on a B&B basis. The only sharp knife was bent and about as sharp as a rolling pin, there were just two stand alone ceramic burners, and there was no oven - just a combo microwave-convection unit which would only cook a single dish - not great if you had any intention of cooking more sophisticated oven based meals e.g. roasts. There was also a strange mismatch between a number of high quality appliances and some of the cheapest possible crockery and cutlery.
All in all not a great experience especially given the price tag - over £400 for a week in October. We felt this was very steep in view of the above. We were also expected to clean the place up at the end of the week (via a fairly draconian notice left in the kitchen) which again seemed a bit much given the price.
