Previous visitors' comments about Letty Piod Cottage:
The property was even nicer than pictured online. The Jacuzzi bath was fantastic and well used! Many food staples were provided. Nice fairy cakes too! The property was well situated for the activities we wanted and was very peaceful even though it was on a main road.
