Located close to the village

Negative Reviews


Quirkiness of the guesthouse

Some guests were put off by the quirkiness of the property, which is full of fairies, stuffed toys and witches. Some hanging or sitting on the shelves.


Cottage is not up to the mark

Guests in the two-bedroom cottage complained that beds were not made daily, the lights upstairs went off and on, and the doors auto close with a bang. Some visitors were unhappy with the low ceiling, and lack of ventilation and waste bins in the bathrooms.


Guesthouse is difficult to locate

Though there are signboards, they are not very obvious while driving through the village. Some guests felt that when it rains, the entrance and the surrounding areas look shabby.
