3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Not what we expected
Older cottage. No heat except for wood-burning stove, which is no good for people with respiratory conditions. Electric blanket on bed is nice. Only has washer, no dryer...must hang in sheep pasture (watch where you walk). Lots of millipedes invaded. Beautiful grounds; well kept. Lots of flowers and fruit trees. No wi-fi. Supposedly free in town...never found it. Very quiet.
