The kitchen was well supplied with utensils and cooking equipment; the bathroom and shower room were also nicely stocked. Everything was clean. The cottage was beautifully quiet and the gardens were pleasant to explore. We felt welcomed without being overwhelmed. It was a very pleasant home to come back to at the end of the day.
