    The house was immaculate and the owners had thought of everything. Was great to be able to cook a roast dinner in a holiday cottage easily! Having a member of our party with an interest in trains the view was amazing but even for those who were less interested it was a stunning location! Could hardly hear the trains so didn't disturb us at all. Lots of lovely walks in area and plenty of attractions. We stayed close to the cottage due to pandemic but this was no hardship. Could happily have sat in the garden for whole holiday!
