    “The cottage was well located and provided a comfortable stay for the two of us .”

    The area was pretty and quiet . The kitchen sink tap needs a new washer it dripped constantly and had to be turned off really hard to try to reduce the flow. The tv only had 2 to channels maybe needs retuning for some more entertainment on rainy days
