“The cottage was beautiful and spacious, had absolutely everything you would need for a weekend away or longer break.”
It was clean and well maintained, and the information left for visitors in the cottage on how the water heater worked, for example, was really helpful and easy to follow. My daughter was also impressed with the family games that were available!
We did use the parking at the community hall (which is at the rear of the cottage), the arrival time at the cottage was set at 5pm, which meant in January we were arriving in the dark, so it was only once we were inside the cottage and found the information left by the owners, that we realised we could park there, we did leave our parking payment in the honesty box!
One thing I had not realised was that Netherbury (where the cottage is located) was tricky to access. Once you turn off the main road, you are on a single track country lane for a reasonable distance. I hadn't really picked up on that from the listing. The other thing is that the village has a lovely church, with a clock that chimes at regular intervals, including throughout the night. I think for anyone staying here who is a light sleeper that might prove to be an issue.
We did love the village though, it is a lovely example of a typical quaint English village, where you might expect to bump into Miss Marple.
