a very cosy cottage with everything anyone would need to have an enjoyable stay
ambrose cottage has all the little comforts you need; a comfortable bed, a pot for your tea and room to relax
very comfortable and close to all amenities
water ends up all over the floor and laundry cupboards at the end of the tub
we were very careful not to fall in or out of the tub! the shower head is large and seems to use a huge amount of water even if you have a quick shower
the cottage was cosily appointed with beautiful soft furnishings
gorgeous clean cottage with everything you could possibly want
our only concern was the shower which is in a very high claw footed bath tub
very helpful managers
also the step inside the house and bath could be hazardous for elderly people - this should be made apparent to people intending to rent the property
it served us well as a home away from home
well appointed, great location
fantastic hosts who went out of their way, very helpful and easy to contact
the location was great, not far from cafes and shops and a nice area to walk the dog
highlights, the botanic gardnes, mill market, stonemans books, book heaven, steff's cafe, walking around the streets looking at the beautiful architecture, absolute peace and quiet in the evening
excellent accomodation in a lovely cottage
the advertised website location of the property from the city centre was misleading - it was not 0
the cottage was neat and clean and run like a well oiled machine, the owners were friendly and easy to contact in regard to any questions we had
