    “The cottage was more spacious than ...”
    The cottage was more spacious than we expected - the photos don't really do it justice. Wonderful view from the bedroom, enjoyed watching the sunlight (and clouds!) move across the hills. The bed was very comfortable. The shower was lovely and hot and had a "rain" head, but the cubicle was on the small side although the shower room was big. The owners were helpful but not intrusive. We'd certainly like to stay at Leasowes again.
