“Something rather special”
Reviewed 4 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015
person found this review helpful

This cottage is very impressive. Outside it fits well into the environment and, inside, as well as having the benefits of being extremely modern, airy and spacious, it feels just right for the beautiful area it is set in. I have stayed in many holiday rentals which have been good. This suited me well and is possibly my favourite. If people's preferences are for more traditional accommodation with low ceilings and a cosy cottage look then this may not be for them. Personally I found it to be cosy in any case. I was interested in the other trip advisor comment which I read before renting the cottage which was less favourable than my own. It almost sounded as if two stars had been knocked off because of lack of salt, sugar, tea and loo rolls. As this is a self catering cottage I didn't have much expectation for any extras apart perhaps from the loo rolls! To set the reviewer's mind at ease I can say that your comments have been taken on board. I found salt, pepper, tea, coffee, milk, eggs laid freshly by the owners' own hens, wine and lovely flowers as well as enough loo rolls to satisfy the needs of an average sized elephant. True there is no Wifi but I came to the cottage fully aware that this was the case and it didn't prevent me from booking. I appreciated the visit from the owner early on to check that everything was satisfactory and to offer some information about the island which was very useful. Many thanks to the owners for creating something rather special and out of the ordinary.
