"Peaceful, convenient location"
We booked this cottage as a last minute break, the owners were great and very helpful. The cottage is in a great location, easy to get to both south east and the north coasts. It is near a working garage and you have to pass quite a lot of derelict vehicles but once you get to the cottage the surrounding gardens are lovely. The cottage had everything we needed, although another couple of tea towels in the kitchen would have been great. It was slightly disconcerting to be able to hear the people next door so clearly when using the main bathroom. The advert on holiday lettings is a bit confusing regarding bedrooms but an email to the owners cleared this up for us. Also a few more photos of the property would have helped.
