Well appointed cottage. Comfortable beds, good kitchen and laundry facilities.
Single bed in alcove off the entry is open to the living area, meaning no privacy for the occupant.

Good old house with character
We stayed at cottage on thistle in early January with 2 adults 2 kids, I thought it was clean and neat house with old style character, plenty of room and quiet location. You will need transport to get to the city which was about 5 -7 minutes away by car. The only small thing I can pick about our stay was we had 1 roll of toilet paper for 4 days but overall a comfortable house to stay in and fairly good value.

Large pleasanr home close to the city
We enjoyed our stay at Cottage on Thistle. The property was clean and spacious and the location was quiet and suburban although just a few minutes drive to the city. There were a few little maintenance issues. Quite a few light bulbs in the property didn't work, including the one in the fridge. There was no hairdryer provided and although there was a lot of shampoo there was no conditioner. The bigger issue was that the lock on the back door didn't work meaning each time we went out we took our technology and valuables in the car with us. Non of these are major concerns (except for perhaps the non locking door), but these little things are what makes the difference between a good property and a great property.

Large cottage, good location, lack of toilet
The cottage is at a good location. It is pretty large with spacious living room, kitchen and bedrooms. While sorry to say, it is lack of toilet and bath facilities with only one toilet inside the small bathroom. We have 4 adults and 2 young kids, and find it inconvenient with this setting. As the cottage is advertised can accommodate 7 people, we reckon at least it should has another separate toilet. By the way, there is no hanger or towel rail in the bathroom for the bath towel or clean clothes.
