    “All in all, a great cottage and we very much enjoyed our time spent there.”

    A couple of observations. 1. Disappointed that there was no 'welcome pack', with no milk in the fridge, and only one teabag between us, the first thing we had to do upon arrival was go shopping! 2. No local maps with details of walks etc, I appreciate that these can regularly go 'missing' but for the sake of a few pounds could be easily replaced.

    Thank you for your kind feedback, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry that there was only 1 teabag, we usually provide a good starter amount so we do apologise. We regularly put maps in the cottage for our guests, often these go missing so I can only apologise but we will look to restock these more regularly. We hope you will return in the future for another visit. Property Owner
