Very little storage and very little space upstairs. Bedroom with bunk bed is very cramped. Double bed is against a wall. A very small characterful cottage, lovely location, best just for 2 people.

Cute little cottage in an excellent position for sightseeing and on the doorstep of the Cottage Inn where you can get excellent food at a good price. Only really big enough for two adults.

This cottage is not worth the money. Smelly bed linen on mattress that doesn't fit and slats on base falling out. Towels with holes. Very dark and claustrophobic.

The cottage was situated in the lovely village of Dunstable and within easy reach of many great beaches and walks. We found the cottage disappointing in terms of the size and lack of natural light. We could not see how the cottage could accommodate 4 people be it adults or children. We could not find the heated towel rail so drying the towels was dRead moreifficult. It was also difficult to sit outside on the bench as the bins were full and as a result the flies were about. Hide

Good value, simple tidy cottage accomodating a small family which are not easy to come by - usually only large properties seem to be available so to have this choice was great. Not that it happened to us, but i would suggest that there is limited drying/airing of wet clothes so take enough in case its a wash out and you cant dry your stuff in time

Fantastic cottage and great location. However it is small. I'm not sure how a family of 4 would mange. There are 2 bedrooms up stairs but only really enough room in the double bedroom to get dressed etc. Very limited wardrobe space. There was only 2 of us for a week we only just managed to put our clothes away. So again not sure how you would managRead moree with children's clothing. Please don't see this a negative it's just a heads up if you are planning on going. We will def be going back. Hide

Not enough storage, 2 small half size wardrobes. Nothing in the 2nd bedroom. Spent the week living out of a suitcase. Cottage is nice and ideal for local walks. Settee is not the comfiest but generally well equipped.

In a quiet village location it is a great little cottage for two people but the second bedroom is so small, even with bunk beds, that a family would struggle for space. The kitchen area was well equipped as was the lounge/diner area. The cottage is ideally located for a short walk into Craster or to the local pub, the Cottage Inn, which serves exceRead morellent beer and food at a reasonable price. The only downside is that the double bed mattress is uncomfortable & needs replacing. Hide

Very cosy and cute Cottage, with historical background. We enjoyed it a lot. Near by is a pub, the foot there was delicious. You can walk to the beach using the Public footpath you will be within a 20/30min walk at the beach. We already recommend the property at friends and family.
