Thank you for your comments; we're pleased that you found the cottage to be convenient for the city and good value for money.
We hope you enjoyed the bottle of wine, fresh coffee, biscuits, orange juice and eggs that we provided.

We're sorry to hear that you found the walk to the local train stations a bit much. Most guests find them to be a short walk of around 7 minutes.

There is a local convenience store and off licence 3 minutes walk from the cottage. The large supermarkets are 5 minutes drive.

We agree that the bedroom is not as spacious as it could be as more room has been allocated to the lounge/kitchen areas. However the bed is a high quality, standard double size with a deep mattress, feather quilt and pillows.

Thank you for your telephone message saying how much you enjoyed your stay.
