    “The cottage was far and away the ...”
    The cottage was far and away the nicest holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. It oozed comfort, was spotlessly clean and the owners were welcoming and friendly. The photos on the website didn't do justice to how beautifully the cottage was decorated and furnished. We would definitely recommend Jaunty Cottage to others.
