  • “The holiday cottage was very well equipped, with lots of little extras that really made it feel a home from home.”

    We loved staying in the cottage and experiencing all the local wildlife, such as sheep and cows in the attached fields and watching all the butterflies in the garden. The cottage had plenty of space inside and out and the views were lovely.
