    “We had a lovely relaxing holiday ...”
    We had a lovely relaxing holiday and visited many interesting place in the area. The cottage was comfortable and well equipped and convenient for our needs. However I don't think we would book it again as it was to dark and found we had to have lights on most of the time. Our trips to The Barn at Glenower in Wales has definitely spoiled us. The other thing we found frustrating was parking I think it should be made clear there are no parking facilities on the Cottage premises but on the main road ...
