    “We have stayed in many cottages over the years, and this one is up there with the best, if not the best.”

    Location fantastic but still a peaceful and quiet spot. Kitchen well equipped, beds really comfortable and social spaces really spacious with a good layout. Good supply of hangers in the wardrobes and hooks on doors. The only criticism and it’s a minor is that couple of lamps in the lounge would be lovely and make it even more cosy.
