Wonderful !!!!! Clean and the pizza oven was such a great extra. The cosy den bedroom was great . This accommodation is a great get away for families , couples or even two couples. My partner and I went with another couple and It was perfect for 4 adults . We hope to go again with our children next year. There is some lovely pubs approx 20-25 minutes walk away - our favourite being the kings head - super good and service and the staff kindly arranged us a taxi back to the cottage . There is internet but it very slow however , Sammy did tell us that before our trip and fortunately we were all able to use mobile data as the signal was good.

Watt Cottage was a wonderful place to get away from it all. It's cute, cosy, charming and full of character. The perfect place to get away from it all and recharge your batteries. The pizza oven provided us with an evening's entertainment (definitely more comedy than cordon bleu in our case!), the living room with a lovely real fire to relax in front of (we didn't even think about turning the telly on), and the comfy beds gave us a couple of great night's sleep. And on top of everything, it was great value. I'd definitely recommend staying there. :)

This is a lovely quirky cottage. It is very well appointed and the owners have made great use of the space. The den bed is very cosy and comfortable - warm even in a chilly November - but has been built into the eves of the roof in the upstairs hallway, so you do need climb into it. We had a great time trying out the pizza oven and will need a return trip to perfect our technique sans electric oven.

Watt cottage is cosy bolthole in a lovely quiet spot. Very homely with the log burner, loads of original features and the Pizza oven was great fun for all the family. Our children loved the 'tent bedroom' and we had a fantastic stay. Sammy was a great host and replied quickly to all our emails, and gave us great information on things to do in the area with our young children.Thank you for a relaxing stay.
