“Lovely cottage, great location, pretty town!”
Reviewed 5 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

This is a very nice cottage, in a fabulous location for the town. Except you can't see the castle so the name is a little misleading. It was plenty big enough for the 9 of us and there was lots of kitchen equipment, towels, bedding, games etc for everyone.

The bedrooms are spacious and nicely presented. The whole cottage was impeccably clean. The bathrooms are modern and clean and there are enough for the number of people which was nice to not queue! Hot water was ok although went cool at times. Having wifi was good as phone signal is poor.

The cottage was a little cold at times and it would have been good if we could have controlled the heating. However underfloor heating was a nice touch though, as is the real fire.

Overall a very pleasant stay in a lovely area with nice walks and things to do around.

“Well equipped and maintained property”
Reviewed 1 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We were five adults so only used three bedrooms hence there was plenty of room for all of us. Location is nice and quiet and VERY handy for the market square. Given that it was the middle of March and absolutely freezing outside we quickly worked out how to keep the majority of the house warm and cozy ... although never quite managed to get the master bedroom and en-suite with its three outside walls to a really comfortable temperature. Kitchen worked well for five with the table against the wall. However for 7+ people the table would need to be away from the wall and would then make moving around the kitchen difficult. Easily sleeps eight and could see it working well for two families sharing. There are beds for two more but place would be getting exceedingly crowded. Living room only seats 6 but there are more seats in the conservatory. Nice tidy garden and the bikes would have been used had the weather been better. There is a washing machine and tumble dryer, but we could not find a clothes horse for those items not suitable for the dryer - perhaps the one real thing missing. Lots of games and videos. Owner was very helpful. This place would be in the 5 star luxury bracket if it had WiFi.
