    "The location itself was fine, if a little more out of the way than we expected, with very narrow lanes. The lodge was warm, inviting, comfortable and reasonably well equipped with pretty much all we needed. The washing machine was easier to use than our own, great for keeping on top of the laundry before returning home. Fridge and freezer worked well and we always had plenty of hot water. The site afforded us the opportunity to see hunting birds, weasels, squirrels and rabbits in close proximity and the silence was to die for.On the negative side, maintenance in the lodge left a bit to be desired. So many things that needed a little attention in order to prevent spoiling the overall stay. The worst of which were the beds with very uncomfortable, worn out unpleasant mattresses. We had to buy mattress protectors before using. Many light bulbs did not work, the toilet flush handle was falling off, the cooker extractor fan and light did not work and needed cleaning. The en-suite window would not open and the master bedroom wardrobe door nearly fell off. I took pictures and videos of all of these things. Its a shame that these (and more) details have been overlooked, because we had a great holiday in some of the most dramatic landscapes with coastal walks and uncrowded beaches. The weather was fine for the most part considering it was the end of the season."

    "The only problem we had was washing machine leaking and breaking. Unfortunately, one of the things we definitely needed was a washing machine as i had my elderly father with me who was going on to stay somewhere after.Reported the fault on Tuesday and machine replaced on Friday but to late then to get the washing dry.The only thing I would recommend is updated and repairing the decking as old and rot in places."
