    Has anyone stayed in the garden double cottage? There is only one picture on the website for it and it is hard to tell. All the other pictures are quite beautiful but seem to be for the more expensive rooms going around 1,000 a night.

    The shops are not too far away (5 mins by car) but to be honest we never had to leave! There is a small supplies shop in the complex.
