The added extras like bread and milk being brought in ready for your stay was a nice touch and much appreciated. The cottage was clean and had plenty of space for the four of us and our dogs. The location great for walkers as it's close to many foot paths and trails.

Owners were so friendly and inviting, and the facilities there were top notch. Sitting outside with a drink and the only thing you can hear is the farm animals opposite is a rare thing. Got a little lost on occasion but that did mean we got to explore some of the stunning local villages and scenery. Our little classic Volvo as perfectly bimbling around the countryside and to all the local beaches. fantastic!
