A tranquil retreat
Oak Cottage was a great find.
The owners were very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. The room was spacious and we'll designed. Having only one room meant that you receive very individual service. The breakfast in the conservatory was of good quality and were entertained by the wide array of birds that visited the feeding station in the garden. The house is very central for many of the attractions in the area. The only slight problem was when we were trying to find the property, the sat nav takes you further up the road.
Nice room spoilt by very rude owner
We couldn't find Oak Cottage so phoned them and we were so appalled by how the male owner spoke to us that we would have gone elsewhere if we hadn't been committed.
He became sarcastic and patronising calling me " darling" and asking if I was from Ireland by which he meant to infer I was stupid ( yes, really!) and then blamed our sat nav telling us to demand our money back, all this instead of simply helping us with clear directions and landmarks. We were shocked and my other half wanted to run a mile from these people. But we pressed on and when we got there the owner ganked open the car door, stuck his ugly face in mine and started again with " are you from Ireland, are you stupid?". Obviously we could not get over this so it spoilt our stay. On other matters, the room has no curtains just thin blinds so is light at 3 am, the braekfast is ok and the view from the lounge is lovely.
