Previous visitors' comments about Rose Cottage:
Very peaceful and quiet, with lots of space to roam around - abundant wildlife too. Very friendly and helpful owners. Just the restful break we were looking for.

It was very centrally situated for touring around the countryside and the owners of the property were very helpful and friendly without being intrusive.
