The cottage is set in a rural location, nice and peaceful, and has everything you need for your stay. The beds were comfortable. The only thing I would say is that the towels are quite thin but everything else was fine. The owners live next door and are very friendly and helpful. Some home made cake was left for us too, which we forgot to eat! TheyRead more left lots of printed sheets in the property with suggestions for trips and scenic drives, which we took advantage of! We had a very nice time. Hide
