The cottage was very clean and had everything anyone would need for a stay. Eggs, bread and milk, sugar,tea and coffee all awaited you- especially welcome after a long car journey in the heat. There were also towels, blankets, toy and treats for the dogs. Steps from the cottage into the lawned garden were quite steep and may prove a little difficulRead moret for those with mobility issues but delightful area to sit and have a drink of a warm day whilst watching the lambs play.

The kitchen is fully equipped and you can cook a roast dinner if you wanted. The owner goes an extra mile by providing a gift pack, slippers, snuggly blankets and toiletries. Even the dogs dont get left out, as there are blankets, towels, toys and even treats for your furry friend. Theres even a toy box for children.

Clean, comfortable and well equipped. Generous off road parking. WiFi not the best (or, really good if you want off grid), so make sure you have a good mobile contract if you need it. Hosts are very thoughtful and could not be more helpful.
