    “The cottage was as we expected, ...”
    The cottage was as we expected, lovely and tucked away, but even more roomy and comfortable, as well as clean and well appointed. The SATNAV navigation points and directions brought us there exactly. The owners was welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable and went out of their way to help us when our car suddenly packed up. Very nice people and a very lovely spot to stay.
