We were absolutely delighted to stay in Northdown Cottage. So many personal touches everywhere, a gorgeous little home from home. We couldn't have asked for a better stay. Icing on this cake was Sue & Bob, they are such a delight to speak to & couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome. We are animal lovers & were thrilled to meet Sue & Bob's Read morebeautiful menagerie, including the abundance of wildlife. The beautiful starry nights are just an added bonus- hopefully we can return very soon. Hide
