    “The cottage was very warm and appealing - all accessories of good quality.”

    Overall recommended location.

    Overall recommended location. Parking poor as others have mentioned. Outdoor space and sunroom/utility could do with an upgrade including stairs providing access. Not too much space for 4 adults to sit outside comfortably. Shrubs in rear area could be cut back, but appreciated the pots. Why not add more seating to front as suntrap early evening?

    We are pleased you enjoyed the cottage and thank you for your helpful comments about the outside seating and shrubs. Due to previous guests having issues with the parking space you refer to in your comments, we removed mention of it within our advertising in October 2019. This space should no longer be used by guests and the current instructions for parking are on the website and on the route details. To stop any further confusion we will place some nice flower pots in that area to make it clear the space should not be used for parking. Thank you again and we do hope you will visit us again in the future. Owner relations
