                                                        Not quite what we expected

                                                        Rosemary J.

                                                        We were not given details of how to find the property until 3.30pm of the day we were to arrive. We only got this information after we contacted Rachel who told us that she had been busy. Not a great start. The property is in a great location. Unfortunately we found dust hanging from the ceiling in places. The shower appeared clean but once one was standing inside, it was apparent that there was mound on the bottom edge of the glass. This, to my mind, should not ever occur. On the plus side, the bed was comfortable with crisp linen and the coffee machine was good.

                                                        A great place to relax

                                                        Great property. Lots of quirky decorations. Very cosy and warm in winter.

                                                        wonderful cottage!

                                                        Secluded setting with cool decor. We loved sitting by the fire and enjoying the sound of cockatoos.
