This was a lovely spacious cottage situated on a farm in a quiet rural location. Our 6 year old daughter loved playing with the friendly dogs and having lots of space to play and fly a kite. Easy drive to beaches and attractions and the cottage itself was very practical with a dish washer, washing machine, tumble dryer, well equipped kitchen, gamesRead more room and a Wii for those rainy days.

Lovely week spent at Carthorse Cottage, idyllic farm setting with county views. Very spacious property and a great bonus of the utility room to wash off the sand and muck from the exploring! Great play area for children. Some minor updates to kitchen equipment and bedding would be recommend but overall a very pleasant stay.
