We were made to feel very welcome by our hosts, and would like to return there. The children enjoyed the space and freedom there, wandering into the paddock to see the horse and into the gardens. The pool was perfect for the sunny week that we have just had. A relaxing location, perfect for getting away from it all.

The cottage suited our needs and had better space than expected.
