We stayed for a couple of nights in a pre-Christmas break. Can't fault the peace and quiet. Our secluded cottage was quite spacious and seemed to have all the necessaries and as advertised.
The only let-downs were a) a severe case of cobwebs on two windows - sliding windows next to the dining table and in the bedroom bay window which made opening these windows not really an option, and b) some bed coverings in need of cleaning. The material for these (velvet) seemed to be a poor choice.
We chose to take our continental breakfast in our cottage and this was delivered the night before...almost enough for two days worth each day. We didn't opt to dine in the restaurant based on some earlier TA reviews and we suspect this is a common decision as there didn't seem to be any activity either night.
On our stay there seemed to be only one other couple staying. Not sure whether the management has the rates pitched at the right level, but we assume it fills up in the wine festival season or for conferences, in which case car parking might be complicated.
Overall, very peaceful and private, apart from the occasion when a wandering couple came to our door to peer in and check out the cottage...we assume they thought there was no one home! Closing the blinds got rid of them.
