5/5 Excellent

14 day stay
I had to self isolate after arriving from the US for 14 days. Chose the Bothy as was a relatively short drive from Heathrow, and it was self contained with a garden to get fresh air. It suited me fine but would be tight for 2 people for 14 days. Everything worked fine and it was a nice warm place. The neighbors are friendly and there’s shopping in walking distance as well as 2 pubs ( not visited by me).

4/5 Good

excellent bolt hole when coming into uk to see family during covid lockdown and restrictions
It is exactly as advertised, small but not cramped, nice and warm and in a quiet location so no disturbance or noisy neighbours. Cooking facilities were adequate and its a 2 minute walk to shops and bars if needed. Wet room works but basin very small for shaving and washing. Its not 5 star flash but it is very well priced for the facilities it offers and was perfect for me to lock myself away from the madding crowds whilst visiting the uk.
