A really lovely holiday. The situation couldnt be more beautiful with stunning views from ever window and the charming shared garden. The cottage is cosy, with lots of little extras such as blankets and cushions. The WiFi worked perfectly even for streaming TV. There were treats left for us, homemade cookies and bread, ice creams in the freezer. AnRead mored treats for our dog, as well as dog bowls. Absolutely perfect spot for morning coffee in the garden looking out over the hills. Hide
