    “The cottage was very clean and very well equipped.”

    It was nice and cosy place to spend the evenings in front of a log fire. The local pub was excellent and friendly and gave good meals. The only thing that I felt was needed is that I think it could do with a carpet runner by the front door instead of the mat so that you could get into the house to be able to take your wet-muddy shoes off. Other than that a great week.
