It was a lot smaller than it appeared in the photos but was a nice and comfortable enough place. The twin room is small with no wardrobes, only a set of drawers, but the 2 main bedrooms are a very good size. It was well equipped. The owners and contacts were very friendly and accommodating.

We were a party of 4 adults and 3 children aged 5months - 9 years. We loved the cottage and the kids particularly enjoyed the enclosed garden, which was safe for them to play in, and next door to a field with sheep and newborn lambs.
