There was a lovely welcome pack waiting for us at Hillside Cottage, consisting of coffee, tea, scones, brown bread, sugar and milk.. What a nice surprise that was. The cottage was lovely and had lots of dishes. The silverware drawer was a bit dirty with crumbs, etc., so I had to clean that before using anything in it, but other than that, things were fine.
The cottage was well stocked, except that it didn't have a hair dryer, which surprised us as this was the only one out of seven cottages that didn't have one.
We would suggest that the owner have instructions for using the appliances, because though the washer is supposed to also be a dryer, we couldn't make it work as a dryer. I am sure it was just not knowing how and not a fault of the dryer, but we had to dry our clothes on the radiators.
The location was perfect and we truly enjoyed our stay in this spacious cottage.
