Comfortable cottage, good location, Well fenced garden for our 2 dogs. Owners next door, available if required but not intrusive.
NIGHT STOREAGE HEATERS REPLACED BE CONVECTOR TYPE ELECTRIC HEATERS WHICH WE DON'T THINK ARE AS EFFECTIVE,THEY STRUGGLE TO GIVE OUT SUFFICIENT HEAT FOR THE SIZE OF THE PROPERTY.

ALSO, HOT WATER SYSTEMS NOT UP TO REQUIREMENTS.

ie SHOWER IS HOT FOR ABOUT 5 SECONDS.

HOT WATER TO KITCHEN SINK IS JUST ABOUT PASSABLE FOR 2 PEOPLE.

THE HOT WATER HEATER FOR THE BEDROOM IS JUST ABOUT OK FOR A QUICK WASH AND SHAVE.
"apart from issues with HOT WATER everything else is ok,
ONLY CLASSED AS 1 STAR DUE TO H/W
if rectified, would give 4"

The cottage was welcoming and well equipped. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We all loved the dog friendly garden and the garden furniture.
It did feel a little cold at first. It began to feel warmer when we had been there a few days. I would have liked a little bit more worktop space in the kitchen but fully understand the limitations. (Maybe I am a messy cook!)
"Little Elkins is a lovely cottage in a quiet spot. Well worth staying in. I would definitely stay there again."
