From the owner

The Nest is a country cottage cliche! It is cosy, quirky, delightful, warm, and inviting. But in truth it is all of these things and more, this tiny little cottage is full of natural light and warmth which makes you instantly feel at home. The lounge/diner/kitchen has everything you could need, and upstairs the ensuite bedroom is warm, sunny and relaxing, the ensuite has a bath with overhead shower. The Nest also benefits from a small private garden as well. There is ample, free on street parking, but best of all The Nest is literally a 2 minute walk into the town centre. Please be aware that the staircase is quite steep at The Nest and only suitable for able bodied guests.

Owner's reply:
Thank you for the review, im glad you enjoyed your stay. All of the points you made have been rectified, although there are silicone spoons for stirring i have purchased some wooden spoons, a cheese grater and a new tin opener. The smell of hair is a mystery to myself and my cleaner as everything is boil washed, but we have taken that on board and will be extra vigilant in future. I hope that you will return to The Nest in the future and look forward to welcoming you back. Louise
