4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Had a great holiday with grandchildren. The location was perfect with an ice cream parlour only yards away. The cottage was well equipped and quiet. The decor was a little tired and could have done with a little refreshing over the winter break. Beds were very comfortable and the children thought their bedroom was magical. Would definitely use this cottage...

Management response:

Thank you for taking the time to post a review! Am delighted to hear that you and your grandchildren had a great holiday. Seem to constantly be doing a lot of refreshing and sorry you felt Myrtle was a little tired :( Will definitely be waking her up over the next few weeks! :) Wishing you all the very best...

Well we have checked in to our first evening in the cottage ..... Stunning views and comfy surroundings ... Just what we needed to share New Year with our parents. Plenty of room in either bedroom for the travel cot for our little 4 month old. Really felt at home so far.... And I'm typing this from the comfiest bed...
