An immaculately kept and furnished cottage with well surfaced approach drive, and easy parking. Ideal for two people, but a party of four would probably struggle a bit as there is only one toilet. Kitchen could be better lit, but is adequately equipped, although we did virtually no cooking as a holiday should not mean struggling over a hot stove !
