Fabulous place. Will 100% be returning!

5 of 5
This is the second time we have stayed in this beautiful little cottage. Martin and Kim are such warm welcoming hosts not only to us but to our little dogs as well. On arrival there was a cake, bottle of wine and some doggy treats which is such a nice gesture. We found the cottage to be exceptionally clean and fresh, we could tell that it had just been thoroughly cleaned for our arrival. Although small this cottage has all of the appliances you would find in a larger cottage all of which worked. We found sweet rose cottage absolutely perfect for us and our little dogs lovely and cosy. The information that Martin and Kim provide is exceptional everything you would need to know about where to go for days out, eat and drink, they have even gone as far to mark out where all of the dog friendly beaches, pub etc are. All you have to do is turn up relax and enjoy your stay. We really cant thank Martin and Kim enough for their outstanding hospitality. We look forward to returning. Mark, Kirsten Minnie and Ted.
