Despite what one reviewer said the car park is not that far away for unloading/loading the car. Yes you can hear the folk upstairs walking about but it was no where near as bad as some reviewers have said. So handy for the Town with the co-op about a minutes walk away. Excellent cottage

Ideal location with 2 designated parking spots, which is great for such a busy town.

As mentioned in other reviews, take ear plugs and an eye mask, the noise from upstairs is very intrusive and the curtains are thin. Also mentioned, the flat isn't as clean as it could be, and the freezer cant have been defrosted for months. The location is perfect, but its expensive and a bit disappointing for the price

Location is great and we really enjoyed our stay here, I do however feel that the cleanliness needs to be improved as well as the equipment, one tea towel, one plastic plate for children, one dishwasher tablet and no extra bin liners is very poor, especially for the price we paid, I feel that at almost 1500 for a weeks stay then equipment and cleanRead moreliness is disappointing.
