Absolutely fabulous cottage, the bedrooms are luxurious and the whole cottage has everything you could wish for. Sarah & Mike are fantastic hosts, we were apprehensive at first when we realised that they lived behind the cottage as we have had negative experience of the owners living so close before, but this was not the case they left you alone buRead moret were there if you needed them. Sarah also provides a meal service if you require which we would definitely recommend. We will be going back. Hide

A very well decorated luxurious cottage with a very well equipped kitchen. Everything you could possibly need and more! The cottage was lovely to return to after a day out and also to spend time in when the weather is not so good. Sarah can also provide meals which were delicious and a real bonus, a delight to come home to.
