Our first UK holiday in 6 years and we werent disappointed. We received a warm welcome from the owner Jo and the welcome goodie basket was a perfect touch.

The cottage was spotlessly clean and well equipped with pretty much everything you need. The welcome pack was a lovely touch with home made cake, tea, milk and biscuits for us and the dog. Jo was a great host and the recommendation of the Greyhound Inn to eat was a wonderful choice. 10 out of 10. Thank you.
