A comfortable cottage in a fabulous location. Warm and cosy on cold days but with doors opening onto the terrace for sunnier days.

We loved the cottage booked at short notice. The location was perfect for us we did 2 lovely walks 8 miles each day round the forest, the birdwatching in this area at this time of year is very good we saw 41 species and that wasn't trying!
