Brown Hare Cottage was a beautiful bungalow cottage for the two of us and our dog. The cottage was spotless and well equipped. Albeit the cottage did not have a log burner, at no stage was it cold, actually it was very snug. Apart from the bedroom and bathroom, which were separate, the rest of the cottage is open plan, with amazing views. The cottaRead morege has a small garden at the front accessed from the drive.
