This was a very comfortable, well equipped cottage in an attractive village, with a good choice of shops and a public house serving good food directly opposite. It was a good place for my husband and I to meet up with our daughter, and we hope to do it all again sometime. We had a lovely time together.

Mrs Winslow, Cleethorpes, March 2014

Lovely comfortable cottage in a very friendly village with several excellent shops. Loads to visit in an area between sea and country. It was a great holiday, beyond our expectations.

Mrs Williams, Faringdon, October 2013

A very comfortable property with all the necessary equipment.
