A very comfortable and sensitively 'restored' cottage, with careful attention to detail. Everything was very recently redecorated, and all furniture and kitchen appliances were brand new. There was an issue with the electrics whilst we were there that was promptly dealt with. All as should be expected of a property commanding top rental rates.
