    Nice and quiet and well equipped but about time for a refurb? Lacks simple collated information on cottage. Has Sky Movies but no Pin available so most movies can only be accessed after 8pm. Drains outside can be quite smelly at times. Visibility when leaving by car is very restricted and local traffic can by moving quickly, this needs attention.

    The surrounding countryside is beautiful as are the towns and villages. It was a shame that we couldn't walk the dogs on the fields around the house especially as the garden grounds around the house itself were tiny.

    We were really impressed with the old telephone exchange. Excellent facilities. Everything had been thought of down to a bottle of wine ready chilled. We hope to visit again soon.
