“A wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 27 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

stayed here with family for 3 nights and it was a truly wonderful little gem set in countryside just out of town. the owner and his family were very welcoming and the cottage had everything you could possibly want for a short break. will definitely stay here again.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The washer dryer does take quite a long time. We normally say to guests that we have a stand alone dryer in the garage which they can use. With you only staying 4 nights I must of overlooked mentioning this. There is a brush and pan provided and a full range of cleaning materials. It was unfortunate that you were locked out for a little while - but these things happen. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and it was a pleasure having you and your family stay in our cottage, which you left in a spotless condition Kind Regards Norma, Bob and Lily
