Absolutely beautiful
Right from pulling up outside the house was lovely and welcoming with the heating on for our arrival. Welcome gift of fresh local eggs. Cottage is fully equipped with absolutely everything you could need for a staycation with more besides. Gorgeous views. Very friendly hosts and a helpful welcome guide with instructions for appliances and local information. Pool table was great fun. The underfloor heating was amazing with the cold weather. Even my greyhound was provided for with dentastix left as treats, dog blankets and towels provided. Would definitely return

Everything we needed.
We all had a fabulous stay here,. The Croft itself is a stone throw away from a very picturesque river, which we and our two German shepherds certainly made use of daily. Our two teenage boys loved the pool table, as you can imagine and we all just loved the space in the very large living area. The people working on the Croft (one was the housekeeper), were very friendly and we were all made to feel very welcome.

A lovely stay.
My husband and I and our 3 dogs, had a lovely holiday here.Beautiful house, very warm and cosy and spotlessly clean.We had a very warm reception from the housekeeper and found it to be very dog friendly. The area was perfect, not too far from the beaches or shops and right next to a picturesque river. One of the nicest holiday cottages we have stayed in.
