The internet advert conveys a false impression of the cottages. During winter this place is extremely cold with the hot water freezing and thus no showers in the morning. The windows are not sealed so polar air fills the interior with the fireplace (the only source of heat; no electric heaters) unable to cope at all. Our Swedish companions are sure they have never been colder. Overall a very frosty experience. The caretaker did a very good job in trying to resolve the pipe issues and was quick to bring firewood to thaw us out. A very nice person.

All in all the place was great and I would recommend it to anybody wanting to get away...
