Newlands cottage cannot be beaten for location and scenery, it is amazing. The cottage has been renovated and furnished to a very high standard. However, my rating for comfort reflects the quality of the mattress's, they are all shockingly poor. The double mattress has a dip in the middle and with all the mattress's you can feel the springs, consequently I went home with a bad back. Also there is no sound proofing, you can hear every movement and sound from the people above; we were fortunate that the people who were in the cottage above tried their best, to be considerate otherwise it would have been far worse. Because of these 2 things unfortunately I could not recommend this cottage and I would not be returning, however if these 2 things where rectified I would be first on the list to return because although the views and location are amazing comfort is vital to make the visit an overall enjoyable experience. One other suggestion; because of the amazing location, it would have been very helpful to have local walks available in the cottage to make the most of the location. When I booked the cottage I fell in love with the location, views and the furnishings of the cottage; I did read the reviews, but not thoroughly until after I had booked, so I would recommend to anyone to read the reviews before you book.

Fabulous cottage in a great location. However could do with a few extra cooking utensils, an egg spatula and a sieve. Also a new garden bench to enjoy the amazing view from.

We had a fabulous week just a few things that I thought let the cottage down . 1 lack of shower over the bath and ventilation in bath room. Needed a heated towel rail that worked in both bath and shower room facilitates. 2 Not enough essential cooking equipment , I except equipment reduced for safety but why supply various sized frying pans with no spatula. Also tv but no batteries working in bedroom. 3 sound proofing between upper and lower appmentments , must of been our misfortune to a loud snoring fairy elephant upstairs that kept waking the dogs making them bark during the night and fear of coming through during the day .
