This was a beautiful cottage in a delightful setting. It was furnished to a high standard and nothing was too much to ask of the owners who were happy to be asked about local places of interest. Eggs from the hens on the farm was an extra treat too!! Our daughter enjoyed the play area too. The adjustments made in view of COVID-19 were extremely thoRead morerough. Will definitely return.

I would just say that overall maintenence needs attention ....We were asked to leave the place clean & tidy but there was no equipment in the cottage apart from a broom! And the washing machine & tumble dryer needed cleaning as did the utility room! Finally we were unlucky the Weather was HORRENDOUS!!!!
