Welcome as soon as you enter the property.
This cottage is tucked away but yet in easy walking distance of the shops and amenities. The car, an estate we had, just fitted on the pavement in the designated area right outside the front door. We did not need to move the vehicle all holiday. The decor was lovely and furnishings great. Plenty of room for 5 adults, although the single beds were on the small side, this means there is more room in the bedroom. Very clean and towels provided. Lots of crockery and cutlery and a couple of deck chairs behind the bins in the kitchen. We had a lovely 3 nights there.
