Only additional comments would be that neither bathroom had an electric shaver socket nor any shelves or cupboards which meant that toiletries had to just sit on the floor or around the bath/shower. Not the end of the world but with children there are some things that you need to keep out of reach. Also outside in the garden the path is subsiding in one part which made it quite difficult for our 18 month old to walk on without falling over. Cottage Rating: 4 Stars
