This cottage was perfect! Our big family spent four dreamy days on Sarah and Chris' farm. Every convenience, comfort, and accommodation was provided. Looking for a city break, we spent our time cooking (and eating), walking the surrounding hills, and sleeping. It's the first holiday home we've rented where the sheets were super high quality.
