All excellent and we had a great time. My only comment / issue was the amount of cobwebs and a few spiders lurking about. Particularly one right next to the bed and over the shower. Also the double mattress / bed wasnt great, noisy and a bit thin.

The bathroom was in need of a thorough clean. The shower head I cleaned myself to remove the black slime and the shower curtain was badly stained. The bed was very uncomfortable and affected the quality of our sleep so much we went out and purchased a mattress topper. Overall the Cottage was a good base but this early in the season it didn't feel lRead moreike it had been thoroughly cleaned for a long time. Hide

We've been to Larch Cottage several times before and love coming back - it ticks all our boxes for comfort, price, size, location and, of course, there's a very good pub 3 doors down! Thank you for another really good, relaxing break.

We did have a problem with the cottage during our stay, nobody`s fault and it was sorted out, but I think not as efficently as it it might have been & resulting in us having to stay in and wasting a day so I don`t feel I can give a higher score.

double bed v uncomfortable, no parasol or cushions for outside seating,no extra bin bags or oven gloves, carex soaps both empty (covid), and for the price we paid I didn't expect to have to take own towels. I still don't know if the check out time was 9am or 10am conflicting messages.very small. The neighbours over road were pumping raw sewage in Read morethe road drain most evenings. Tried to report but no phone signal. Hide

We loved the location, and the Cottage. Only thing that we found uncomfortable was the bed.
