The annexe was clean and comfortable. Fresh scones, jam, cream and flowers on arrival...lovely. Location perfect for exploring the area. Downside is the small decked area outside the annexe, owners stipulated on a set of rules dogs not allowed to foul the decking, even though it was green and slippery and needed a jet wash so had to walk the dogs aRead moret 7am and again last thing at night or allowed upstairs. The annexe is fine for a couple without dogs. Definitely not a dog friendly annexe Hide

We found the owners to be very friendly and all the extras provided appreciated. However the bed was hard and uncomfortable and the noise coming from the owners shower at 5 in the morning was very unwelcome. We would not return as we found it to be very expensive for an annexe.

Generally the cottage was excellent. We were a little disappointed that the dogs were requested to remain downstairs, we have a rescue dog who has never slept away from us so one of us stayed with the dogs downstairs. We felt that this should be pointed out in the details it may have affected our choice.
