    “Lovely little place very close to centre of town”

    The photos of the downstairs have been taken by a very skilled photographer as the rooms are smaller than it looks, but perfectly suitable for 4 people. The main bedroom is a lovely large room that could take a lot larger bed than a standard double. The 2nd bedroom is perfectly sized for 2 people. The water pressure though (especially in the bedroom) is low which makes the shower difficult to use. The stairs are steep and may not suit those for whom mobility is an issue. The kitchen was well equipped (although there was no grill rack) with a range pf pots and pans, crockery and cutlery. There is a small courtyard to the back that whilst it is used as a run through for 3 cottages has secure gates (which are not that high) so it is suitable for non-jumping dogs, but with the stones used it does make it difficult to clean up after the dog has done anything!) There was a lot of welcome information/maps/guides/menus left, however the information is a year out of date - this also meant that whilst we put out the bin on the day we 'guessed was correct' it was not collected (the bin was 3/4 full when we arrived, so had to leave it full on leaving). Parking wise, over the weekend we did have to park 3 streets away (which is not the fault of the owner) but during the week, it was quite easy to find a space close to the cottage. Overall a nice stay, very close to town but in our opinion slightly overpriced by £100 or so
