Lovely cottage if not a little too cluttered with furniture and wonderful views.. However, the kitchen cupboards and door compartments of the fridge were dirty. There was no room in the kitchen cupboards for our own food, luckily we eat out so didn’t need the space. After showering for a couple of days we noticed the water was not draining, my partner took the drainage plug out of the shower and it was covered with hair, it hadn’t been cleaned for weeks. The inside of the shower was also dirty and the outer edges on the outside. There was a cup mark on the living room windowsill and dirty marks on the bedroom floor. The cottage was advertised as having WiFi but it didn’t. I had received a message from Sykes in April informing there was no WiFi but then I received an email stating it had been rectified and there was WiFi. I contacted the owner on arrival asking for the WiFi password and was informed that Sykes should have informed me that there was no WiFi. The TV didn’t work as we couldn’t receive a signal despite the owner stating that it did work, we tried several times turning the sky box off and on. The fact there was no TV wouldn’t have bothered us as we really only wanted it for the news and weather reports. It would have been nice to have a decent radio to listen to and some board games to play, We would have taken these things if we would have known prior to going. I was also surprised to see someone’s boots on the boot rack. Despite all of these complaint the beds were comfortable and clean, however if you were any bigger than a size 10 you would have difficulty fitting round one side of the bed in main bedroom and therefore my partner had to sleep in the second bedroom. Plenty of soft white fluffy towels but not very absorbent.

Lovely location and high quality accommodation.. Wifi was not available and TV reception was poor so listing was not quite accurate. As others have mentioned not having curtains does mean very early waking in summer mornings. We had an electricity problem on our last evening but got a 3 person response within 20 minutes. high quality caretaking and owner offered a free weekend to compensate for the inconvenience. Impressive response.

We understood the cottage would have Wi-fi.. Although we had a communication saying that the provider had changed or was in the process of changing but that was not the case. We always find Wi-fi useful to plan our touring when on holiday - however that did not stop us having a lovely time. It was an unusual cottage with a lot of planning gone into making it quite special. We felt that curtains in the bedroom would have been helpful - however it did give us lovely views of the stars at night - no light pollution there. The views from the cottage were second to none. The 'caretaker' was very prompt at sorting out a few little hitches. A truly beautiful part of the country, lots of wild life and lovely people.
