A waste of the excellent location and a great property, we made the wrong choice by staying here. Unfriendly and extremely rude staff, restrictive hours of facilities make a very annoying experience. So be aware of a few hundred rules when you reach there. The central room is a licensed bar so it closes at 10 PM (by law) and you need to go out and walk back into the kitchen through the garden (a dark ally, no one bothered to put a light there) only to find you are not allowed to cook.

Wow, What can I say. Going from the majority of our feedback which isn't left on reviews sites, as people only seem to want to complain online. I find our staff to be more than welcoming and extremely happy to help.You ARE allowed to cook. The side alley light is left on over night, so instead of complaining online maybe informing us, as the possibility the bulb might of blown. we have 1 rule and have 2 laws we have to abide by. Which are We're licensed and no smoking in the hostel.


We feel very well at the Cottage. Kirsty is an excelent manager and very friendly! Thank you very much Farr Cottage Team. Regards, Anna

Must have been a slow weekend, we were pretty much the only ones there, therefore the owners didn't really seem to put a lot of effort in. All in all everything was fine, the double room is extremely (!) small though (no real place for luggage) and the walls are thin as paper.
