  • "The cottage was great for us and our 3 dogs."

    Comfortable beds, lovely big lounge area and good wifi. The garden has a secure section through a gate, which was perfect for letting the dogs run around. This area isn't shown very clearly on the photos, perhaps more emphasis on this would help encourage people with dogs to book it? Worth noting the area in front of the cottage is not secure, so dogs need to be under control or they could potentially run onto the road or up the driveway of a nearby house. Overall a great property and we hope to return soon.
