  • Mr Atkinson

    “We have stayed at this cottage previously and it is one of the most peaceful settings but it is also handy for lots of sightseeing and walking.”

    The cottage itself is absolutely beautiful and the surrounding land is ideal for our dogs to play in. The property is a mix of old and modern and is furnished accordingly, it is also supplied with every utensil you are likely to need and more. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hopefully will return for another visit.
