It is furnished to the highest spec with very comfortable chairs and settee. Excellent decoration everywhere with two delightful sitting out areas. Thoughtful neighbours close by. Visited Muddy Boots cafe. Good food and they make you most welcome. Look out for the Red Kites circling overhead the cottage.

Amazing to see the red kites soaring in the sky from the living room window. Would have been nice to have a microwave. All in all a very nice cottage.
