It is well fitted out and was beautifully clean on arrival. The welcome pack was comprehesive and greatly appreciated. There is plently of opportunities to explore from the cottage either on foot or by car. the village itself had great pubs and restaurants and the local shop provided both essentials and luxuries (ie sticky toffee pudding). All bedrooms were a good size, bathrooms well appointed and living rooms spacious.

When we arrived the house was absolutely lovely and had everything provided we needed for a lovely stay including tea/coffee, condiments etc. We all felt like it was a home from home and i couldn't recommend both the house and Pat highly enough.
