Beautiful cosy cottage

5 of 5
We felt really comfortable staying in your lovely cottage. Everything we needed was there. The kitchen was very well equipped and the decorations and decor throughout was immaculate. The back garden was a lovely suntrap which we used to enjoy a late afternoon drink. The village itself is very pretty, and is within easy travelling distance to other towns and villages.
