Everything you could want was in the cottage. BBQ, tin foil and even fresh flowers on the table. Very spacious and comfortable. Private as well. True 5 Star.

Wonderful views from the property and a place you quickly felt at home in. Great kitchen and good quality local pub food. Great for the dog as the common was immediately available out side the door.
