The quality of the property was very good and it was perfectly situated for our needs.

The cottage was of a very high standard with quality beds, crockery, cutlery, fantastic showers etc. The garden was just lovely and we felt very at home there. We couldn't of asked for a nicer place. Some great walks straight from the door too.
