Cute old cottage
Cute old cottage right by the old railway line, a bit tricky to find (Google got confused as to what was and wasn't a road), but a cut old cottage when you get there. Had everything you need and everything worked (shower pressure wasn't great but this might be the are). The place is a little rough around the edges but guess it adds to the rustic charm.
