The cottage is pretty much as described internally, it still feels like it was recently refurbished and was very clean. The kitchen is well equipped with instructions for all of the appliances, which are of high quality. Only scope for improvement is a freezer compartment in the fridge for ice. The living and dining area is spacious and comfortable but would benefit from brighter lighting, the cottage feeling duller than the pictures suggests. The main bedroom is spacious with a comfortable large double bed and sufficient storage. The second bedroom has two comfortable beds and sufficient space, The is a nice bathroom and a separate shower room both with heated radiators. Bedding and towels were provided.
The cottage is a mid terrace property and could benefit from some external work on the front to improve the appearance, the peeling paint on the front door didn't create a good first impression, particularly as the interior was in such good condition.
The rear garden is fairly spacious with good views over the countryside, it has a picnic table but no barbeque. The lawn was in poor condition with long grass that had only been recently strimmed and was very uneven. The garden has potential but needs work to bring it up to the same standard as the house.
It is not possible to park outside the property, other than briefly to unload etc, parking is available in a car park less than 5 minutes away. The village is pretty with great views and walks and the people there were friendly and helpful as were the neighbours.
I would recommend the cottage and enjoyed my stay, but feel that some attention to the front and garden would further improve its attractiveness.
