Everything was exactly how it was stated, assuring the property was exactly what we wanted! Loved how modern the kitchen and bathroom were! Loved how you felt at home and felt comfortable. Bedrooms were perfect as well! Outside the front is a beautiful little area - grass is well kept.

Very cosy cottage, and was generally very well stock and supplied. Neighbours were very friendly, landlord was very friendly, and people in the village were really lovely and welcoming. Very convenient shop a short walk away. Absolutely loved the stay and the cottage. Would definitely recommend and come again.
