      The location and virtually everything about the cottage was fine. However the mattress in the main bedroom needs replacing as it is very poor. The beds in the other two rooms were fine.

      The website pictures are somewhat misleading as the interior images show bright spaces but in reality, the interior is fairly dark and is a little smaller than it would appear. Included are photos of the large pond but this was so overgrown and chocked with bullrushes that it was only recognisable by the presence of a lifebelt. TVs - in the lounge, very limited channels and the on/off control was actually the wall plug and not the remote. The TV downstairs did not work. The whole cottage was in need of decorative work and rather tired-looking and this made it over-priced. Recycling instructions could be clearer and information was in four different places and didn't correspond. There were one or two minor problems with lights and extractor fan but we chose not to report this as we didn't want to be disturbed. On the plus side, the gardens were beautiful and well tended, the bed linen was pristine and the food hamper was extensive and much appreciated. There were plenty of everyday items available such as herbs, tea, coffee etc. Two fridges were very useful however, the ice box in one was unusable as it was solid with ice. Overall a beautiful character cottage in need of some TLC or updated photographs which represent reality.
