    “The location of the cottage is very rural with little in the way of local facilities and means having to travel down very narrow lanes to tourist attractions.”

    The welcome pack was basic - tea, coffee, a small jug of milk and biscuits. TV not good - limited channels and no freeview. A bin needs to be used for any products other than toilet tissue.
