The cottage has everything you need and is pristine and very comfortable, warm and cosy. Verity has skimped on nothing, and she's a really lovely lady too. We had a lovely time yet again and hope to go back again.Such a lovely place to stay (especially when the sun shines!). Can't praise her and her cottage highly enough. Thank you Verity.

The welcome pack was a great touch. This is a prime example of how to run rental accommodation we had all we needed and great communication from the owners. Will definitely stay again

We're SO grateful to have met Renate and John, as they were so lovely and welcoming. The cottage and the property are everything you could hope for, plus more! I cannot recommend this property enough — wonderful stay and wonderful owners!
