Well equipped cottage in great location

5 of 5
The cottage was fantastic; stylish and immaculate but also homely and well equipped for all the family''s needs. The owners were very helpful and welcoming. There were some really lovely touches such as homemade cake waiting our arrival and plenty of thought about making sure the children were entertained, too. We will definitely return!
