The Nook was just the right size in a convenient location and with good parking. Central heating and water heating was set right and it was comfortable. We had a lovely holiday.
Mr Foster

Overall, excellent cottage within walking distance from town. We felt like it was a home away from home. Instructions were clear and laid out beautifully for all cottage equipment. Cottage is spacious and actually looks better on arrival than in the pictures, which is a first!
