Fantastic location over looking the lake, very relaxing and uplifting ideal for fishing and relaxing. Plenty of bird activity. The cottage was very well equipped, clean and maintained to a high standard. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners John and Shirley. Plenty of places to visit with numerous garden centres and key towns within reasonabRead morele driving distance. Looking forward to a revisit in the near future. Hide
