A beautifully luxurious cottage, like staying in a 5-star hotel. The base-line supplies were excellent (especially the warm bread!) and as someone who loves to cook while away the kitchen equipment was an extraordinarily high standard. It was fun to live in for a few days respite from 2020.

Absolutely fantastic cottage furnished to the highest standard. Extremely well equipped and luxurious. The road is fairly close but it does have a good enclosed garden if you have dogs. Even though it's next to two properties privacy was given at all times. Great location and hosts. Best welcome pack ever.
