We arrived on the Friday before Christmas and found the cottage to be full of surprises......the log store was full, the fridge had milk and the cupboards had all the essentials. We stayed a week and the offspring came with their offspring on Boxing day.............and we had a fabulous rest. Highly recommended for sure.
10 mins walk to town centre (12 mins walk back - it is a steep hill!), parking nearby (little further up road or in road opposite).
The house plus annex slept 8 comfortably and would be ok with 9th in single bed in same room as a double. There was room for all of us to cook and sit to eat a meal. There were plenty of utensils, crockery, etc.
Rooms surprisingly large (given the frontage of the premises) over 3 storeys with one double bedroom in an annex out in the back garden.
The cottage is old - be prepared for low beams in ceilings and reasonably steep stairs.
One drawback is there's only one toilet/shower/wash room although we managed to get 8 persons showered and ready for presentation at a wedding without too much problem (the annex room also has its own wash basin). Anyone with mobility problems could find the toilet/shower/wash room opening directly onto the stairs an issue.
For us, it was an excellent choice and the quirky nature of the building was all part of the charm and fun.
