    “The cottage was immaculate and well ...”
    The cottage was immaculate and well situated for exploring the local area. It was the first time I had taken my dog away and the large enclosed garden made it safe and secure for him to roam about. Mrs Hunt, the owner visited us before we left the cottage and was very helpful and friendly - we really enjoyed our visit, thank you.
