                                                              We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The cream tea left for us was a lovely treat and much appreciated. We would definitely stay at the cottage again and would highly recommend.

                                                              Great spot, never got in the car again.

                                                              What a find. Quaint and quirky on 3 levels, this place was perfect for our family. Our 16 yr old son had his own bedroom and toilet and access with a floor dividing us. Surprising amounts of space and really nicely done out. Pubs, shops, cafes and walks, everything on our doorstep.
