- “Wonderful cosy cottage”
- “What a lovely cosy cottage this is! We stayed here during the New Year period and it was just fabulous! We were 2 families with 2 toddlers. The rooms are adequate and there is a snug with a single bed which we used for one of the toddlers. The owners have put in a lot of thought into the property as attention to detail was unbelievable, in order to make the stay as comfortable as possible. There were books, DVDs, CDs, and games to keep us occupied indoors. They also provided us with the most amazing food hamper upon arrival which was a pleasant bonus! Excellent, excellent, excellent!!”
