    This cottage is fine if the weather is fine. Unfortunately the weather was awful raining almost very day, with cool temperatures. Nothing the owners could do about that but it meant the magnificent view from the cottage was obscured more often than not by low cloud.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Such a shame the weather was not on your side, think the whole country suffered that week..... so wish it was something I could control. Hope it was nice and cosy with the log burner, although I'm sure, not quite the flaming June you were hoping for.
