We stayed here for a long weekend at the start of November to celebrate a 60th birthday; the cottage was perfect for a large get together with family and friends. There was more than enough space for everyone with the 2 living rooms and a large dining area that meant that everyone could eat together, the 2nd kitchen was also a great addition when trying to feed 20+ people in one go. The hot tub and the pool (which we were expecting to be closed) made the weekend even more special, both were well used by all our guests. Timo was there to meet us on arrival and popped in each day to check on the pool and ensure that everything was okay, he made us feel very welcome. We’ll definitely be looking for another excuse to rent out the thatched cottage again!
