“Cosy and functional”

This cottage was ideal for what I required – a base to use whilst on a walking holiday. Although technically all I am looking for as a serious walker is a bed for the night I prefer to find one in a location where I can feel relaxed post walking and quickly feel at home. Carn cottage achieved this.
The cottage itself is one of those quirky upside down cottages due to its location on a hillside. You therefore enter on the upper floor into a comfortable open plan area comprising kitchen, dining area and living room. Stairs take you down to the cosy bedroom with a comfortable double bed and a side room with shower and toilet facilities. The standard of cleanliness and furnishings throughout is of a very high standard and better than a lot of cottages I have stayed in previously.
The owner lives in the attached cottage and is available for help or advice throughout your stay. During my stay they were issues with the central heating and the host went out of his way to keep me informed of the situation letting me know what the service personnel were doing and when the issue was resolved. He was very apologetic although I accepted this was one of these things that was outside of his control and could happen to anyone at anytime. Even so the owner presented me with a bottle of wine upon leaving as a thank you for my understanding during the week.
The parking at the cottage is awkward as the property is located on a very narrow road and manoeuvring on the road can be difficult as a result. However, I drive a rather large car and was able to manage this without too many problems, so it is not impossible provided you are confident in your abilities.
The other reason I have not given this the full marks is that unlike a lot of other properties that no ensure you are made welcome with some homely touches like fruit, flowers or tea/coffee/milk were not present. Obviously these are not essential but do provide that extra touch that warms the guests to the cottage from the offset.
