    • “Had a very enjoyable week, Poppy Cottage was good and comfortable. However I found that the toilet did not flush properly. I mentioned this to the owner Jean before we left. Also the quilt in the single bedroom was not like the one that was on the double bed. It was lumpy, and did not provide for an adequate covering, and needs to be replaced. Overcame this problem by using the throw over on the 2nd night. Please note that this was not a major issue. Nevertheless, that aside, a nice comfortable cottage in a nice quiet location with all the home comforts and facilities. Will definitely recommend to friends and family. ***Owner Response*** We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Poppy Cottage. Thank you for your suggestions, we have now changed the single duvet and sorted the toilet flush out.”
