  • “I'd like to say to future occupants: The property has been on the market for over three months now, so don't expect the owners to add much more, though they did come and sort out the TV and the shower within 48 hours when these had gone wrong.”


    Do drive/ walk to the very top of the hill soon after the beginning of your stay. Until I did I thought the cottage was in rather a gloomy hole and not like the photo of the view on the website, but then I understood what the place had to offer. Unless you plan to be either out or in bed all the time, bring your own amusements - books, jigsaws, DVDs - what's there is minimal. If you can bring a folding card-table, do. Also a standard lamp if you both want to read together in the sitting room in the evening, the lighting is minimal. If you're bashful, bring a piece of cardboard about 2ft x 3ft to put in the bathroom window when you're showering. The blind doesn't work, and anybody walking down the path (only on the way to the cottage, though, as there's a corner in it) sees straight into the bathroom. That said, we had a nice time there. If you're an adaptable or tolerant person it's well worth a look.
