          Lots of room and big garden with well stocked kitchen and dstv plus dvds very well furnished and comfortable Main bedroom lacks a door to the bathroom so light is a problem...Studio lacks curtains on one window No WiFi....essential these days!Otherwise with the above fixed we would return Establishment's response:We intend to respond to Mr Macintosh`s comments by installing wifi, putting a door on the bathroom and a blind on that window. We appreciate helpful comments.

          We love the cosy atmosphere of the cottage as well as it's location. It had all the comforts that one needs with great extras such as books, dvds and all the necessities for braaing and cooking. I would highly recommend it and would love to stay there again.

          We had a wonderful, relaxing weekend at Coots Cottage. The cottage was neat, clean and very cosy. We enjoyed eating in the beautiful back garden at night. Stanford is truly a hidden gem. I would recommend Coots Cottage to anyone looking to break away from the city.
