Owner's reply:
Wow, in 5 years we have never had a response like that! As detailed in the property description, The Croft is a 200 year old, restored workers cottage. Yes, the windows are small. Yes, the roof is pitched. Yes, there are stairs. It is a shame you had not read the description or viewed the many photos on our web site. I hope anyone taking the time to read this will also look at all of our other reviews to make an informed and balanced assessment. Good luck with your next holiday!
