  • "Directions were good."

    The cottage was super clean and very comfortable. The bed especially was excellent and we both slept very well throughout our stay. We enjoyed the gas fire in the evenings and the kitchen was really easy to use and very well equipped. We have stayed in a lot of holiday properties and this was one of the best. Good value too, but it was February!

    Thank you for your lovely review! So pleased you enjoyed your stay and embraced the village community. Hope you can return soon. Kind regards Rosy Property Owner
