Charming cottage

5 of 5
Clean comfortable much bigger than it looks from the outside. Very well equipped kitchen and cosy seating area good beds Not being very technical or a ten year old had a bit of bother trying to get TV to work managed eventually I’m sure the fault was ours not the TV Plenty of books to read and DVDs once we sorted TV out.owners are lovely live on site very helpful but not intrusive in any way
