Nice cottage. Everything needed was inside. Not very quiet, workers made a lot of noise.

Our stay was nice. Glenda was the perfect hostess. The cottage was neat and all the necessary supplies for self catering were there ..
The shower needs some attention as the water temperature didn't stay constant while showering..
We will definitely go back..
