    Apart from being cosy, clean and comfortable with everything we needed and more, the cottage is also perfectly placed. The railway station is just a 5/10 minute walk, with a large supermarket right next to it to get basic supplies for the week.

Even the large supermarket was less than a mile away so it was easy to stock up on essentials for our stay.
