We were very disappointed on arrival at Sloe cottage The entrance and patio area was dark, dirty and covered with weeds and moss, unsuitable to use and sit in. The house itself was very well presented and furnished

Lovely cottage, very cosy and well equipped. Kitchen and bathroom superb. The owners are very helpful. Was a very relaxing few days, some lovely walks in the area then able to chill at night infront of a log fire and watch netflix etc. Although no onsite parking, 40 min. drop off outside. There is roadside parking less than 200 yard away.
