We had a great holiday at Carpenters Cottage. A beautifully presented house, ideal for a holiday. The flowers, cake, wine, dog biscuits and dog towels were a lovely surprise and much appreciated. The sun room was a great favourite. Set opposite a beautiful nature reserve, wellies needed, and not far from town. We walked down to The Duver at St HeleRead morens many times and enjoyed a bacon roll at the Baywatch Cafe. Ganders restaurant is ideal for a special meal or The Vine Inn for a pub lunch. Hide
