"Excellent accommodation for a large group of walkers"
As a group of 14 keen walkers we were impressed with the accommodation provided. The lounge was cosy but still large enough (just about) to seat 14. There was plenty of wood provided for the log fire. The kitchen also had the capability to cater for 14 comfortably. There was a drying room for all our (very) wet walking kit which was more or less dry by morning for another day of walking. My only complaint would be that there were only 2 showers, which made the bathroom queues quite long! Overall though I would thoroughly recommend this house for large groups.

I have read the previous review and yes i agree the water is not inviting, but this was highlighted in the booking information. We bought bottled water for our stay and found this not to be a problem. The cleanliness of Hinning Cottage was OK, although it have not been hoovered when we arrived. The bed were spotless and I loved the fresh white bedding on all the beds. All the towel were also white and fresh. There was also fresh laundered dressing gowns on the bed's which I have never had before on a cottage let.
We did have a few cobwebs but what whould you expect of a property built in the 1700's
The Electric lights are not good and there needs to be attention here,especially as we are now into winter, and getting the lamps to work was a work of art.
The advert said share games room, I was disappointed as this was mearly a table tennis table and football table in a out building, with no door, not much use on a cold wet day. The wi fi was hit and miss depending upon where you were in the cottage. but we soon found to good spots and that was fine.
The Kitchen was clean and a welcome package of water, cereal, coffee, bread, spread, marmalade, suger milk plus a bottle of wine was a nice touch, the fridge needs replacing as the ice compartment is broken and we wasted to units of ice cream KIds not happy !
There was lots of logs for the fire and this gave a good cosy feel to the evenings.
Overall we enjoyed our holiday, clean bed, warm comfortanle environment & good food (home cooked, no takeaways here)
I have rated this above average due to the comfort factor and lovely weather we also enjoyed
