We booked this stay as part of a group who also rented a number of other properties in the area through Island Escapes.
The cottage was absolutely perfect. The location is great and it is fully equipped with everything you could need for a week. It is incredibly spacious. Other members of our party couldn't believe how much space we had. Gorgeous views over the fields and the children loved watching the cows.




My wife wanted to move in.

We loved our stay. Recently renovated. All equipped and presented. Spacious.
Location was pretty convenient and I loved going for a morning run around the country roads.
Booked the stay as part of a surprise trip away for me and my wife and she really didn't want to leave the cottage or the island. I'm sure we'll be back.
Appreciated the local produce to get us started and kitchen had everything you should need.

This is a new property and the Owners were very nice and helpful.
Our less than 100% rating perhaps is a reflection of personal taste more than anything and is based on the following:-

Internally the property is very comfortable, well laid out and well appointed with equipment (Other than the absence of a Freezer which we were advised would soon be in place).
Outside, the area is less inspiring as this property shares a courtyard with a larger property and is next to the main road which runs through the village. Unfortunately for us, the road noise was a little intrusive when sitting outside and we didn’t appreciate having to look at surplus building materials which had been stacked up, out of the view of the Main property but in the area which was meant to be for our amenity.

Less in control of the Owners, was the fact that the Bus Service was totally unreliable during our stay with significant numbers of services being cancelled and no reliable forecasting of what services would actually be running.
The inconvenience was compounded upon discovering that the only eating facility in the area had decided not to open it’s doors during the week of our stay.
With there being only a small Spa shop in the village and faced with the potential of unreliable bus services and hospitality, one needs to be prepared to travel independently in order to dine out.

Whilst I would recommend the property to others, it’s with the caveat that our own reservations are unimportant to them.
