Inside the cottage is compact and bijoux, and you will find everything you need for an enjoyable stay. There is a living area with seating, dining table and chairs TV/DVD plus free WIFI access ( not a strong signal) and a lovely log burning fire to keep you warm if needed. There is a small kitchen equipped with fridge, microwave, electric hob, and electric oven, adjoining this is the shower room.
