- 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.
