The cottage is beautifully decorated giving a lovely home feeling. It is well equipped but we did find that with being a larger party a few more cups/cutlery would have been useful. We have had a great holiday and did not want to leave. However, we look forward to returning in the near future. The booking of the property was very easy. The owner Carrie is very accommodating and responds efficiently to any queries you may have. Thank you Carrie for letting us stay in your lovely home. Best Wishes The Crocker family
