Perfect escapism!

5 of 5
Shepherd's Cottage is in the most idyllic setting. It was our 3rd visit and we had such a lovely, relaxing and peaceful holiday. The cottage is beautifully kept, and there are plenty of places to visit nearby - or, if you prefer, you can just soak up the peace and quiet in the garden.
