First I would like to say that the house was a great house to stay at and would have got 5 stars had it not been for a few niggles that only came about due to it being winter.
The positives are location, cleanliness, log burner, comfiest beds in the world and just well appointed.
Down sides. No central heating. Bit of a biggie this one as it was winter and we had no where to dry things (towels etc) and it was rather chilly. They did provide small storage heaters which did very little to warm the house. Or us.
Next noisy plumbing. Caused a lot of hilarity at first as when the upstairs toilet flushed there were noises like a fog horn as the cistern filled. Owner it just needs new innards in the Torbeck valve. The downstairs toilet needs a new diaphragm in the syphon valve too.
Last but not least the bed room with telly in becomes uninhabitable when windy. After a bit of investigation we found it was the vertical tiles on the outside of the dormer windows aren't attached right and make a hell of a clatter when the wind gets them. Two f us had to sleep in the living room when the wind was up.
Hopefully these small items will get addressed as they spoil (to a small extent) what is a lovely property.
As mentioned by others watch out for the parking police next door. Most unfriendly. If you don't like living next to a rental, move. It's easier being on the green anyway.

Really nice place to stay, everything inside was excellent and a really pleasant cottage to stay in. However, the parking "police" next door were a pain in the neck. You aren't allowed to park a car anyway near the rental, only for dropping off and if you don't move it straight away, you get a note on the windscreen and a knock on the asking you to move it "immediately".
Could have spoilt what was a fine weekend away.
