    Apart from the weather which was hot and sunny all of first week and hot and partly sunny on second, Mrs Gray greated us on our arival and had left a welcome pack of essential food to see us through untill we could shop. The swimming pool was wonderfull and could be used by prior arrangement with Mrs Gray. The cottage was tucked away well secluded near the owners house that was not at all intrusive. the cottage was exceedingly well equiped with a wonderfully comfortable bed. A secluded patio area and BBQ enabled one to sit out for meals either cooked in the cottage or on the BBQ, The only drawback was that the patio didnt get much sun but in order to provide that you would have lost privacy. Mr and Mrs Gray were a delightfull couple who left you alone but were there if needed. All in all a great stay and I cant finish without mentioning the local butchers shop who sell themost wonderfull bresad from a local family bakers, salad stuff and vegitables and the very best quality meat reasonably priced. A quaint old Post Office and a local Pub called the Anchor who serve reasonably priced Pub Food. If you want a relaxing holiday in fabulous surroundings with lots of walks and need only one bedroom then the Cart Lodge is for you and for later in the year a large log burning stove is provided.
