The welcome from our hosts was warm and helpful. The cottage was spick and span and gave the impression that there was great deal of attention to detail. All the facilities were in good working order so our whole week ran smoothly.

The cottage was really good, felt like home from home. Everything you needed was there. Just a personal thing for us, the bed and pillows were a little uncomfortable, but that is just personal choice. Cream tea on arrival was a nice touch.
