Would rate this as above average at 3.5 stars. Bit disappointed (after the glowing reviews we read here) to find that there was no convection oven (only a microwave one) and that all the units only had mobility shower bathrooms, according to the front desk. Cons: - No oven, but there is a microwave and stove top. - No dishwasher,...

Our two x 4.5 star plus cottages have gas hobs with 4 burners and microwave ovens. This is clearly advertised. Had you wanted a bath tub and full oven we or your agent would have provided one of the five other cottages that have both a full oven and bath tub. Had you wanted a unit with a dish washer...

Thank you for your review of our three bedroom cottage. You have appreciated that they have full kitchens and that you only have a short walk to the town centre. The modern double glazed windows certainly keep the place "quiet" We are pleased that you will stay with us again one day.

Family of 3 generations stayed in 3 bedroom cottage for 2 nights. Great friendly staff, cottages could not have been better, very clean and had everything one would need. We had a 2 year old which fitted in well in the cottage, BBQ supplied which was great. Highly recommended.

The cottage was snug and warm with good privacy. The cottage was close to town and we had a discount for a milford trip the owner ran. Great kitchen facilities also. Although on a "main road" its very quiet in this town and cottage.

We stayed in the one bedroom wheelchair accessible cottage (not sure if they all are wheelchair accessible or not) and it was quite comfortable. Even though it's directly off the highway, it's very quiet. We also enjoyed having our own BBQ and covered porch. The hosts are very friendly and helpful!
