A very nice property. The equipment, especially in the kitchen was the best we have experienced in the UK. Knives were sharp (not often the case in rentals), and the pans and pots were 100% ideal for rather picky people like us and our friends. I don't think there was a single item of equipment missing or of a poor quality which is a credit to the owners (they love in the house opposite).
The woodburner in the lounge gave a rather comfortable and homely feel, particularly as we listened to the October rain slapping against the windows. We were warm and very content in every room. In the summer, with a nice glass of wine, I think that it would be difficult to venture far from the cottage.
We did have a difficulty with the WiFi, but the owner sorted this out (a problem with the WiFi service provider - we've all been there haven't we ???) and seemed upset that our brief break had been disrupted.
I think we would have liked an additional shower in the property somewhere, but as we all know each other well, sharing the en-suite shower (at different times !!!!) was not really an issue.
The welcome pack with teas, coffee and wine was nice to have.
There are very good walks close by and an extremely friendly community pub (the Raven Inn) in the nearby village. The community also runs a little shop there.
We ate at the three Pigeons (I have disgraced myself by spelling this incorrectly in the visitors' book). Again, this was a friendly place with excellent portions and choice of food. Impressive beers. I don't know why we should have been surprised, but the clients of the pub said hello to us when we arrived, which was smashing and made us feel welcome for the whole of the evening.
