A little gem
We booked online and received all the info needed ,I just called the owner to check on key collection .Its a little piece of times gone by with all that you need to enjoy your stay ! We were a family of 4 with a small dog and while the cottage is tiny it suited us perfectly, with lovely outdoor space for dining and a barbecue provided with coals etc.The evenings were cold so we lit the lovely little stove (that had been preset for us )with turf from the local area that had been provided .The beds were dressed with lovely linen and nice towels in the bathroom .(a hairdryer would be a good addition ) We were overjoyed when we went for a walk down the hill to discover the most beautiful cove and hidden beach with breathtaking views .We had a coffee overlooking the beach and vowed to return !! Totally enjoyable stay emersed in peace and tranquility (with a super little restaurant 1 min walk from the house )

3/5 Okay

Quaint but not as advertised.
The cottage was what we expected but was not as advertised. Wireless internet was an amenity that was not available. Contact with the owner was required for access and obtaining hot water. We cut our stay short.

1/5 Terrible

Expensive for the size and the facilities offered.
The cottage is tiny even for two people. The shower had no power and it took ages to wash shampoo out of hair. The bathroom had mould all around the shower.

5/5 Excellent

Charming, quaint, just right for us
We had a wonderful time. Originally booked the cottage as we were going to wedding nearby. We then decided to extend our time here to make a holiday out of our stay. The cottage is wonderful and had everything we needed, it is very well equiped.
