Fabulous cottage and location

5 of 5
We have just returned from a wonderful 5 days at Wain cottage which was beautifully appointed and extremely comfortable, a real home from home. We would not hesitate to highly recommend this as the perfect holiday cottage and look forward to returning as soon as we can.
