Lovely cottage in a great location

Great cottage very high standard, unfortunate that the sofa is very tired and a dirty oven. Bedrooms and bathrooms a very high standard. Location could not be better.

We visited this cottage 6 adults just after New Year. It was perfect, warm, spacious,well equipped lots of information and plenty of games. The weather was cold but sunny and after a long walk there was nowhere better to come back to.
