We have stayed at this holiday cottage numerous times and keep coming back. The lounge/dinning 20ft x20ft room is excellent. New owners are friendly, nothing is too much trouble, and being on site is very handy. Booked already for this September.

We had a really lovely stay, I missed the information about the garden been shared so I was really glad that we were the only ones staying there as the weather was beautiful we sat out and there is only 1 table/4 chairs. The gallery had an event on our first night and the noise was horrific, wish we would have been informed of this before our stay.Read more The cottage is well equipped, shower is not powerful at all.

Excellent cottage, has everything we needed and lovely views. WIFI good for email and Web search, don't expect tv downloading, too much buffering.
