    “The cottage is lovely & the current owners have clearly refurbished it to a high standard.”

    The back yard is very secure, but not so good if you're dog needs grass. Sadly we really suffered with ants at the property. We made use of our NT membership in the local area, lots to do &see in the near area.

    Hi Rebecca, thank you for your feedback. I'm glad you liked the cottage and apologise for the ants which hopefully didn't detract from your stay. I understand that the housekeeper was informed and offered to come to the property but this was declined as you had already dealt with them. I have now been to the cottage and sealed their access route and can confirm there was no further sign of their presence. David (Owner) Property Owner
