Perfect cosy cottage for our family and 3 dogs. We love the themed bedrooms and the hot tub was very welcome after a day out walking. The garden was lovely and fully enclosed and our tiny yorkie didn't manage to escape and she often finds a small gap! Sandie and Charlie were very welcoming and on hand if we had any queries.
