The owner welcomed us and was very helpful with local information. The cottage is airy with plenty of light and is set in lovely grassy grounds that attract wildlife. A very peaceful setting to relax and rest.

We liked the warm welcome given by the owner, the high standard of the interior of the cottage, furniture, bed linen, decorations etc. The grounds were beautiful. The location was excellent to explore the area and it was excellent value. Will definitely return to this cottage.
