    “We had an absolutely amazing time at the cottage.”

    The secret door was fantastic and the kids thought it was very exciting.

    The secret door was fantastic and the kids thought it was very exciting. It was really well equipped, with everything you could possibly need. The beds and bedding were supremely comfortable and felt very luxurious. The owner was very helpful with arrival time and anything we needed. We would love to stay there again.
