A very well equipped and comfortable cottage. It was close to local amenities and there was parking outside the door. A very enjoyable stay in a friendly and interesting town.

The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped, and within easy reach of the town and surrounding area.
Mrs Griffin, Ryde, December 2012
The property was cosy and warm. Very convenient being a few minutes walk to the shops. Great to be able to park our car outside the cottage door. Crockery and cutlery was spotless.
Mrs Ardran, Dukinfield, November 2012
The centrality of the property to the town was its best point. In November it felt nice and warm. I liked the clean, modern, well-equipped kitchen. The private parking space directly outside was very convenient. I found all the local info left by the owner helpful, especially the maps and suggestions for walks.
