    “What a beautiful cottage, it was ...”
    What a beautiful cottage, it was everything we could wish for. It was clean, warm, cosy, and very well equipped. The view from the garden was outstanding. We loved the area, there is plenty to see and do. There are two pubs that serve good food a minutes walk away. We had a very peaceful and relaxing break.
