“Cosy house in good position for Southport and around”

Tudor Cottage is set in a relatively quiet area, on a 'no through road' (apart from the farm track at the end - the road is set nicely alongside fields). It is within easy reach of public transport, village shops and of course Southport beyond (less than 15m by car).

Highlights include a sunny dining room / conservatory at the back, with a TV, toy box, some magazines and leaflets and a barn door which leads onto a nice little back garden. There is also a comfortable sitting room at the front with a wide and interesting selection of books, along with a TV and DVD player (and various DVDs). The kitchen is nice and practical, with instruction manuals available for all the appliances. I think the only thing we missed was a cafetiere / coffee maker, but that's a minor quibble in an otherwise very well-equipped kitchen.

Things worth being aware of: the stairs are a little steep so may be tricky if you have limited mobility (or very small children). Some of the equipment is not exactly modern but presumably that helps to keep the rental price affordable. Likewise, the house has single glazing; not a great problem in terms of warmth as there is central heating and it's mid-terrace, but obviously you don't get the sound insulation benefit of double-glazing. I was disturbed one night by the neighbour's car coming and going but then I'm a particularly light sleeper, and as mentioned before it is a generally quiet area.

Some of the houses on the street don't have driveways (including this one), but parking on the road is easy enough - we managed to park right outside for the most part.

Aside from the house itself, it's important to know who you are dealing with for an enjoyable and stress-free break, and I'm pleased to say we found the owner, Phil, to be very friendly and obliging. He showed us all around the house, and was also happy to advise on matters such as shopping and getting around the area.

So the bottom line is… if you demand holiday accommodation where everything is new, shiny and plush, then you may wish to look elsewhere (and in a different price bracket!), but if you’re after a homely, no-nonsense, comfortable house with everything you need for self-catering, then Tudor Cottage is well worth considering and I've no doubt Phil will do his best to ensure you have an enjoyable stay.

Thanks for your detailed and comprehensive review. There is some double glazing in the conservatory and the area in general is usually very quiet. The televisions are CRT type but most other appliances are quite new. There is now a cafetiere.
