This was a perfect cottage for us - huge, comfortable bed, proper sofa and comfy chair, excellent facilities in the kitchen and a gorgeous sun trap patio. The views across the valley were excellent, it was private and quiet and honestly, after thirty years of booking cottages, I think Ive found my favourite!
