We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and property was excellent value as a late booking. Our only gripe was that the oven pan and grill had not been cleaned prior to our visit - but not a problem for us as just did it ourselves. Overall the property was very clean and tidy.
Despite the lack of a microwave we did enjoy our stay & would recommend the cottage.
