Snowdrop cottage is very comfortably furnished and cosy. The owner is extremely nice and the whole place is geared up for dogs. Beautiful walks from the cottage so we only used the car once. Village shop is well stocked and you are greeted with smiling faces. One of the most restful holidays we have had in a long while.
