    “The people who owned the cottage ...”
    The people who owned the cottage were nearby but weren't obtrusive. In fact, they were friendly and helpful. The cottage was extremely clean and comfortable. The garden was an absolute delight and the location was lovely. They made us and our little dog very welcome. It is a great area to visit, lots to see and places to explore. We had a really good break and would go back again.
