    “The holiday home was absolutely ...”
    The holiday home was absolutely PERFECT. The owners, Jo and David, could not have been more kind and helpful. We were VERY pleased with our location, comfort, cleanliness and overall cottage. The fishing lake provided some excellent sport and was well situated a very short distance away from the cottage in a small vale so gave peace and quiet and was protected from any winds - like a piece of glass! It was very restful and just what is needed to get away from the hustle and bustle of busy life ...

It was very restful and just what is needed to get away from the hustle and bustle of busy life. The only concern (if it is a concern) is the wi-fi is not very good, due to the thickness of the walls I understand,. However, sometimes this can be more beneficial than disturbing. It certainly did not distract from our holiday! Would we recommend it? Already have and will keep on doing so! Thank you Jo and David for a holiday home which will take some beating regarding standards of comfort and quality
