    “Nice enough cottage and the owners are helpful and lovely.”

    However the place suffered from old fashioned heating that worked only when it wanted . There were too many cobwebs and spiders which I felt could of been cleaned up before we arrived. If you can see past these things then it is a comfortable stay at the cheaper price I paid . I wouldn't pay top rates for this cottage. I have to be honest even though I hate it because has I mentioned, the owners are lovely people who will do what they can for your stay.

    As it happens we are about to spend several thousand pounds on replacing the old (about 25 years) storage heaters with modern ones which work a lot better and are much more controllable. Mary is fastidious about cobwebs and spiders - but in a centuries old property the spiders are very quick at find their way in. Property Owner
