Even made sure the heating was on for when we arrived which was very appreciated. They left complimentary tea, coffee, sugar and milk which was a lovely touch. The cottage itself was in an amazing location. Not far from local amenities and great for a beautiful costal walk. There was 6 of us in total 4 adults and 2 children with 2 dogs. Which we were all very comfortable. The board games and wii kept the children entertained. The cottage was well stocked with everything from cooking utensils to even body boards that we could use. We had an amazing time and will definitely return.

The complimentary starter logs and very well equipped kitchen was great! Plenty of space for the two of us and the additional twin bedrooms would be great if we had extra guests. The bathroom was small but perfectly adequate. Quiet and peaceful location not far from the coast we enjoyed a lovely woodland walk to the coast path . We would definitely consider staying again!
