Boy were we wrong. The cottage is in perfect condition equipped with just about everything you could possibly need and then Angela and Malcolm top it of by things like having a huge folder of local and more remote activities, a welcoming snack waiting in the refrigerator and a lovely subtle flower bouquet to name a few things. The cottage is situated in a lovely area with plenty of activities and interesting sights are in short driving distances. Can not recommend this highly enough, to bad we can not give six out of five stars because that's what this stay deserves.

I booked it for a family celebration for my 70th Birthday with 6 adults and 5 children and it was superb with plenty of space inside and outside in the delightful grounds. We have not stayed in a better equipped house - it has everything you could need. The welcome cake and fresh bread etc was a really nice touch. Many thanks to Margaret and Graham

Great location, easy to walk to restaurants and found a good cocktail bar!. Lots of walking from the doorstep, and the homemade Victoria sponge cake left by the owners was great to return to. Really recommend.
