Beautiful cottage, spotlessly clean, equipped with everything you could need, furnishings and equipment of very good quality - really couldn't fault it.

This place was absolutely ideal for us and we had such a lovely stay. We've give it four stars on location based on it being a little out of the main area and not that close to a pub or restaurant, but that's really harsh as it suited us perfectly.

A gem of an accommodation in a beautiful setting with all the modern conveniences youd expect from a high quality property.
