The owners have refurbished it to a high standard and it is homely, comfortable and very well maintained. Excellent location for the east coast and further afield and a great pub literally over the road. Communication with the owners prior to arrival was excellent, clear and very welcoming. We have no hesitation in recommending the cottage.

The weather was unkind to us at the beginning of the week but the two log burners made up for that, then the back end of the week was very sunny so was cosy sat in the conservatory, a very comfortable well equipped cottage and would recommend this cottage to anyone.
